Body in primer.  Peeling in some spots, probably lacquer based.  Small crack above RF wheel (hard to see in picture).  Exhaust opening were filled in rear of body.  Hood was modified (cowl induction look).  Underside is solid, can’t see any bad spots.

Exterior chrome is complete except center grill bar and teeth. All chrome is nice and shiny with no pitting (nice driver quality).  Only rear taillight housings need attention.  All stainless trim is in beautiful shape and polished up nicely (emblems and cove moldings are missing)   All glass is good, no chips or scratches in the windshield.  Some light crazing on one side of the hard top rear window.
