*** Issues ***
Needs radiator -- In Stock and available for $375 from Galvin's AMC Rambler Parts, (209) 365-6315.
Passenger side small dent and scratch from previous owner (see pics). I lightly sanded this area and sprayed with Rustoleum about 9 years ago. You can see this "temporary" fix in the pics. It's been in the garage ever since so I never took it to a professional body shop to pop out the small dent and make it look new.
Driver side scratch near rear bumper (see pic).
Needs the open button for glove box (Galvin's AMC Rambler Parts).
Two door lock cylinders need to be replaced (i.e., driver and front passenger) - available from Galvin's AMC Rambler Parts. (The rear hatch lock works well with ignition key.)
The two door lock cylinders need to be replaced (one on driver and one on passenger side). I think I have the replacements (never found the time or need to put them in).
Inspections are welcome.
Cash only. Pick up only.
Garage kept and located in Elmira, NY 14905 -- Just off Interstate 86 / Route 17.
