Small imperfections are found around this car – but nothing detracting from overall value. Two small touch-ups on the right front fender, small scratches on both quarter glass windows and a small crack on the windshield side of the dash.
Brightwork and chrome are great, all lenses and lights are free of cracks and stone chips, and the vinyl top is excellent.
