starts easily cold after two weeks

runs strong, shifts well

pulls to right when braking - one front slave may be stuck - master is great

clutch solid and fluid good

new tires - right front has slow leak

needs new driver door striker or new sleeve (worn)

electronic ignition - 12 V negative ground

missing window seals in doors

doors flair outwards slightly at bottom - need alignment - have found lots of threads online on how to align

this car was a daily driver in Kentucky a few months ago - so everything works well and it drives strong - but sitting has caused the front right slave to stick
kentucky pink slip and I found the VIN and commission plates in a box for a 68, which matches the pink slip

horn is on a button on the steering column

light magnet run over entire car sticks except rockers
