Power windows with tinted glass operate as they should. Electrical is mostly new and has no issues.

INTERESTING / IMPORTANT VEHICLE HISTORY AND SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS:

The car spent its life in the California desert until 2001, restored 2001-2004, driven less than 2,500 miles by two mature owners since. It wears all its original sheetmetal with the exception of a new trunk floor. The pictures show the car as-is, and it has not been washed or seen water in 8 years. All parts used in the restoration were purchased from Dodge or were NOS out of the US, the remainder were quality US-made reproductions or refurbished by well-known American Mopar restoration service companies. All receipts are included, no overseas parts used, right down to the hose clamps and center caps. All receipts for the restoration, mechanical inspection report, 2001 California personalized license plates, original owner\'s and shop manuals.
