there is some surface rust here and there and the dash is kinda rusted but not bad. it has a fiberglass tub to that gets rid of alot of typical rust spots. and the guy drove it an hour and 30 min to meet me so it runs good. and there is no ticking, tapping, clunking, or rattling at all. the ignition switch is broke and is one of those "screwdriver" ignitions haha so i need to find out how to hot wire a push button ignition. also ya got to pump the brakes 3 or 4 times to build the pressure to work half decent so i think i need a brake booster and the master cylinder needs a new rubber thing under the cap and a few other things like that but over all its not bad.

You can get a new ignition prolly cheaper than a push button. I just put a new tumbler in my '65 and it was like 14 bucks and took 5 minutes to install.
