The glass and seals are in excellent condition and there are no leaks evident. The body trim, including the chrome, aluminum, and rubber, is in good condition. No trim has been replaced, nor has it needed to be, on the car. It has all been polished, preserved and cared for properly over the years.

The door have some rust along the bottom, and can be repaired by any qualified auto-body repairman fairly easily.(This was an issue with most of this body style cars (Riviera/Eldorado/Cutlass/Regal/Monte Carlo/Grand Prix) here up north.
