The last entry in the diary was in 1975, the car has been in storage since then and has not been serviced since that time. Car is equipped with a 383 cu. in. V8, push-button automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, leather upholstery and factory air conditioning. Original car diary will be passed onto the new buyer.
