Its no wonder the functions as good as it does. EXTERIOR: Sold new at Converse Motor Co, Albuquerque NM. Very clean dry body. Its straight as an arrow, even down along the bottoms of the car. The paint is slick. All the stainless trim has been buffed and polished to show quality. The 300 side emblem, door handles, mirrors were replaced. Chrome vent window pillars are mint. All the chrome looks redone. Up front the entire grill area is mint. In back its just as nice. Look at the cars styling features. Up front has the big mouth grill with quad headlights at a slat on each side. The rear wings on top the 1/4 panels make it look fast sitting still. The ribbed trunk lid is a nice touch. INTERIOR: Inside is even cooler then the outside. My favorite feature are the swivel seats. The console extends front to back with armrests cushions making 4 bucket seats. The upholstery is perfectly broken in genuine leather. The dash is space age looking. Over $2,000 was spent restoring the electroluminescent gauge cluster.
