Please make note of the original factory spot welds on the inner edge of the front fenders which confirm originality.
This car features an original undercarriage. It even still has traces of the cosmoline protectant (the root beer colored areas) over the factory undercoat. If you've studied this website you know that transmission mounts are body color, rocker panels are satin-gloss black and body color paint over-sprayed a bit onto the undercoat when the cars were painted at the factory; all just as you see above. We added the stainless steel exhaust system.
