All of the chrome & brightwork including bumpers, grill & stainless trim is in excellent condition all the way around the car, and all new glass was installed throughout as well. This wild Sedan sits on original 15” painted steel wheels w/ dog dish hubcaps & beauty rings, wrapped w/ General Altimax radial tires (225/70/R15 on the rear & 185/65/R15 up front).
