The only thing not working is the clock. The power windows all work extremely good. The dash is in great shape and original chrome and stainless trim still retain a brilliant shine. Turn signals, lights, gauges, and all other switches are working correctly, even the original AM radio and antenna works and sounds great!

The car also has a firestone wide whitewall spare which could be original as well and it is capped by a very nice Cadillac Sabre wheel and cap. All original tools are also in place and nicely restored. Condition of the trunk is a 9 out of 10.
