    IMG_2300.PNG Thought I'd share. Pulled this out of a warehouse after 22 years. Not a survivor but only had one repaint in original color about 35 years ago. Tops original as is motor.

    Anyway

    Check it out IMG_1967.JPG IMG_1964.JPG IMG_1769.JPG IMG_1763.JPG IMG_1965.JPG IMG_1763.JPG IMG_1892.JPG IMG_1969.JPG

            I was the first one to remove 3 of the 4 door panels.
            Anyway new carpet in and cleaned up the rest of it.

            Temp solution on the arm rest base while I await the arrival of the new chrome ones

                Beautiful machine, congrats! Man look at those floors, hard to believe its a charger....

                BTW do you still have the original carpet? If you do and the padding underneath is in decent shape I would buy it from you!
                PM me and let me know.....Justin
