EXTERIOR: The Regatta blue looks fantastic. Has a very glossy, mirror like reflection. Jambs are clean, new sill plates. It's even slick to the touch. The body is exceptional. Looked down both sides, it's super straight. Panels fit nice. Chrome bumpers and mirror were redone. The stainless trim was professionally polished like chrome. Original grill, headlight bezels, taillight bezels and lenses all look excellent. Glass is all crystal clear, 1 stone chip in the windshield. New chrome Magnum 500 wheels with new Diamond Back radial redline tires really make it pop.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
