This car is in excellent
functional condition and can be driven without hesitation.  Being a
classic car, there always a few things that could use some attention. 
Here are the things that I see as issues with the car:
There is no audio system currently in the car.  The car previously had a vintage radio installed, and there is room for a new installation.
One corner of the
passenger door and one corner of the trunk are a slightly out of line with the body.  It
should be a small job for a body shop to align them more closely.
The hood should be heat
shielded at some point, to protect the paint.  Similarly, the cabin roof
could be insulated to keep the interior more comfortable. 
Front orange turn lights
have slight mismatch.  
The window sprayers
work, but not particularly well.  I don’t use them because I don’t want water
sitting on the car, nor do I let the car get that dirty.  The cap on the
wash reservoir doesn’t match the bottle.  I wouldn’t bother with either of these.
There are three chips in
the clear coat less than 1.5mm.  There is one scratch, about 1” long below
driver door that goes into the color coat.
The rear differential oil probably
hasn’t been flushed in a while, and so I would suggest doing that at some
point. 
The seat belts are
probably original, and would
consider replacing them at some point. 
 
Further notes on the
car: 
The wheels I put on the
car are wider than the original, so the front wheels rub on the sway bar when
doing a three point turn, at speeds less than 5mph.  They don’t rub during
normal driving, and the rubbing hasn’t damaged the paint nor wheel. 
This car has poor rain
runoff management, in that it can collect water in a couple spots and thus eventually could rust.  I would not store this car where it can
get wet.
The dash cover and door
bolsters are plastic, not fabric.
This car has no AC
system.  You could have one custom installed, and there is some room in
the engine bay for a compressor, but something else would probably have to be
moved, making it an expensive job.  I just keep the windows down.
I have a collection of
spare parts and manuals (printed and electronic) that I will include with the
sale.
 
This car has been
completely disassembled, repaired and rebuilt with the utmost
care.  The above list does not include the many, many little parts that
had to be replaced or repaired along the way.  I hope you will
appreciate it as much as I have.
