Okay here are the not so pretty close ups of the problems on this car.
Yep that's a cracked windshield. My insurance will cover that.
Golf ball sized dent towards left side of the trunk
The left parking light is blown and right fog light is blown. Left fog light is cracked. Both reverse lights are blown.
As far as the dashboard and wood panel goes there is some peeling on the wood panel and a tiny crack in the left corner of the dashboard. Some cracks on the front passenger side door.
Correct me if I'm wrong but is that a clutch? It almost seems this automatic car is a conversion which I can't understand why anyone would do that. The bigger problem though is the pedal above the "clutch" which I believe is to spray windshield wiper fluid out of the nozzles. When I try it windshield wiper fluid leaks out of the pedal and on to the floor. Of coarse could be totally wrong for what it's supposed to do.
Left window lock is stuck in the up position making the left passenger window switch inoperable. Right window lock is stuck in the down position so the right passenger window switch still works.
Managed to pull the seat covers off although I am having a difficult time finding a way to remove the head rests. Drivers seat has a small tear, elbow rest has large tear, passenger seat has large tear.
Some other minor problems are the temperature controls are very hard to move. Want to get a new ignition. 40 Years going of putting the key in and out is bound to cause a lot of wear. The key I was given is pretty worn too. Already had copies made. Now, not sure if this is normal or if it's a problem with the key. If I stick the key in all the way it locks up. I have to slightly pull the key out a little to be able to start the car. It get's stuck a lot. Again definitely should get a new ignition.
As of right now the car needs some mechanical work before it can go out on the road. These problems I was not informed of.
The car has a really difficult time turning and makes a screeching sound. The power steering belts are tight as can be so that's not the problem. I suspect it is the power steering pump that needs fixing.
Starting the car takes awhile, let's hope its just in need of a new battery.
The car is leaking something. It's either the engine oil pan or transmission oil pan
As you can see this car has it's fair share of problems. Well I'll be picking through the junkyard for seats, a better ignition. Some of the parts I can definitely find online. The title and bill of sale is on it's way through the mail. I got what I was looking for though. A W115 body that wasn't completely rusted out for under $3k. It sure isn't close a cherry but when I'm done with it it'll be close.
