The car is completely original.I think it has 88,000 original miles on it. Every part I replaced was original. Even the front brake calipersEngine was rebuilt mostly because it needed new valve seals (they were also original) so I decided to just go ahead and rebuild the whole engine. Engine was in very good running condition before rebuild.Everything that needed to be replaced on the car has been replaced with top quality parts.Original Vinyl top in excellent condition.The car runs absolutely perfectly.
