Car has what I believe is a Chrysler rear end.Rear end works fine but the Chrysler brakes do not.Have 56J rear end for the car.For this reason car will need to be trailered.

Engine may have some bearing etching due to not changing the oil annually.

Turn signal switch works, but has a mechanical issue.Note replacement steering column has this switch.

Car requires new interior, and new paint.Note that both front fenders have bondo; replacement fenders are bondo free (one does have a small easily repaired crease)

Vehicle is sold as is without warranty express or implied.
