Seat upholstery was professionally replaced including foam and wood  using leather. New carpet and canvas tonneau cover. New wood in floor behind the seat, the storage area for the top was the only rust in the car. Replaced with new unit from Moss Motors and  powder coated black. Cover for under the dash is missing however the car comes with a new  still in the box unit from Moss Motors as well as a yard of green  material and carpet. The car has no top or side curtains and the transmission does make some noise in first gear as if it has a chipped tooth other wise all other  gears are solid and it shifts solid. This is a great driving car. Very nice solid driving car.
