Heres my pics...........and shes all MINE!!!

Here she is, all $3,000 skins worth. She's been parked on a uncovered driveway for years. Most things work. Heres whats wrong, odometer frozen, wood varnish flaked and one split in the wood on the tach, about the 8 o'clock position. One of the vent slide controls frozen, located top left, and I don't know what it controls. Passenger side tail marker light out and cover cracked, brake light ok. Missing washer resevoir. Rubber seals dry rotted ALL around,and shrunk to the point were the rear glass is floating in the seal and rattles when you hit a bumps. Vent window seals pour water, notice damage to door panels. Exterior paint faded. Chrome pitted, rear bumper the worst. Minor surface rust, no rust thru's. Oil leaks minimal, but present. Havent cleaned engine bay or under carrage to find out exact leaks, I think both pan gaskets, maybe crank seals. Suspension weak. This will be a daily driver for a couple years till I prepare for a full restore. Hope you enjoy the pics.

I believe you'll find the no. 190 on your ident plate. That sure looks like Graphite Gray to me. I think we have twins.[:)]

Congrats on your new ride! [:)]

That parking lot looks familiar, where in SoCal? Or it must have reminded me of a different parking lot.[:D]

Nope on the 190, but here's my pennance for not scrolling all the way dow before my last post.
426=auto transmission 493=? 503=outside mirror left 515=radio w/4 speakers 531= automatic antenna

291 H would be the paint but thats not on the list

There's a start on your original equipment.

Radio antenna doesnt look auto. I didnt take a close look yet, but it sits on a spring. Let me go check and snap another pic.

RE: Heres my pics...........and shes all MINE!!!

I guess it is automatic. In either case its not working. Not unless its not hooked up, or broke,to the aftermarket radio. Does anyone have a scan of the codes??? Thanks.
