Paint is urethane and has gloss mixed with paint.Car could have been skim coated but it looks ok.

I have a clear title in my name . Nada lists low retail on this car at $10,600.00 and high retail of $47,000.00 the price I am asking is $13,900.00 and is very fair. I also need 1-3 acres unrestricted acres that will perk (preferably in the woods) not in a flood plain ,within 50 miles of nashville, with available electricity. I also have more cars if needed.1968 Firebird,1966 Toronado deluxe ,1976 Ranchero GT . I do not text! Leave message I stay busy but will get back wih you as quickly as possible
