On 11/5/10, we had the car on a lift to photograph the condition of this Pagoda's undercarriage. Rust-free, 40+ year old cars are very rare, but rarer still are ones that still have factory undercoating and are not not sprayed over by black goo to "pretty it up." These photos reveal an honest, original, rust-free undercarriage with some road dirt, as well as recent mud splatter.
Above one can see a new flexible brake line and tie rod. The shock absorber looks rather recent also.
Above is the area where the rear trailing arms attach to the undercarriage - it is all original.
What you see above on the wheel well lip is mud caused by the recent rains.
