what about paint and interior? Honestly I never understood the anxiety about the dried out rubber. Literally the first thing we tell any new owner of these cars to do is replace all the old junk anyway. The good news is with a low mile car there's probably no to little rust on the hardware, parts are original, so you don't have to worry about shade tree hack work.

On top of that paint and interior are what really matter. It costs what? $1,000 to replace all the rubber on these(including tires)? Ever price out a full quality paint job? How about New carpet, headliner, seat covers, and source all the various bezels and plates that careless owners manage to break and gouge to shit?
