Looking at this 71 tomorrow
The car should be in very good condition.

Obviously it is repainted - in the original blue, but it has been repaired due to battery leak/rust in the front of the floor pan. Looks a bit off to me.....I know that the cars are old and most have had body repairs by now, though.

Also the V and welding around the shock tower is different than on my 76.

Any comments on the pic will be appreciated. Will post more tomorrow.

nice looks pretty tidy and clean, but guess we all know how good photos can make cars look.

the front pan ahead of the fuel tank looks pretty crusty but as long as its not full of bondo......

just watch the rust story stacks up and its not accident damage.

nice fuchs as well!

good luck, hopefully he has some pics of work being done to the car.
