    Appears to be damage on the left front fender just above the bumper below and forward of the side marker light. No mention of this in the ad.

    He isn't making any effort to conceal it, either. He's taking offers, he writes.The color combination I find appealing, even though I'm generally not one for vinyl tops. But, it looks good on this one, IMHO. The crease can get hammered out. The only features I don't like are those bumpers and those Ambassador wheel covers. Simple hubcaps or mag wheels would harmonize better

    You gotta give him props for the photo of the car at speed. Looks pretty neat.

    Man, I remember when these things used to be all over the place. I always liked the proportions of these cars. I know they aren't muscle cars, but the roofline, beltline and short rear deck kind of remind me of the late 70's Polara's and Fury's styling.
    Which though subdued compared to their predecessors, where still pretty muscly, especially in police car form.
