Other than a repaint in the original black the car remains largely untouched and original. The only modifications are an electric fuel pump and alternator by the previous owner. I put a Pertronix Ignitor II and a brand new Edelbrock carburetor on the 368. The Mark II runs, rides and drives as you would expect. The low miles, caring owners, and dry climate mean this is one outstanding performing classic car. The sunny, dry climate also mean the leather interior is quite parched. That's the trade off for a nearly rust free 63 year old car. The only rust are some bubbles on the bottom of the front fenders (see pic). I'd be glad to send any additional pics of the bottom of the car or any area you're concerned about. You'll be pleased. Now for numerous Mark II accessories. Three out four power windows work. LR 1/4 window has to be raised and lowers by hand. Speedo, temp, oil pressure and fuel gauge work. Clock and tach do not. The inoperative tach is a recent problem. The fuel sending unit had an in line resistor so now the fuel gauge reads higher than accurate. Fortunately Continental saw fit to also put in a trip meter so I use both for judging the next fill up. The A/C blower works and the compressor engages with controls. It does not blow cold. As most old A/C cars I'm sure it needs charged and perhaps a leak fixed. The front and rear bumpers are excellent as is most of the chrome throughout the interior and exterior of the car. Under the hood there's no rust. It's simply maintained except for the previously mentioned upgrades. The hideous air cleaner has been on my to do list for some time.
