The wheels are awful. I hope 15inch Rallyes will clear the Baer brakes. According to the site they should. Hope a 275 can fit the rears.

The missing lugnut is a locking lug that had to be cut because there was no key.



So you bought it?

After looking at that fender tag pic, I would say repainting the whole engine compartment is in order.

Paint the intake manifold

Tail light bezels should be argent (contact Jimmy Boros for proper three color restoration, he does great work, he can also sell you a set of nice restored grilles if you chose to go back to stock, correct for 71, he may even buy the hideaway set up from you)

both bumpers are 72's (slotted for jack hook) Again Jimmy can get you correct rechromed 71 bumpers, or if your sticking with painted, fill the slots before repainting as the front has a big chip anyway.

I would add the super cool bazooka exhaust tips which means changing the rear valance

Go to Summit Racing for

(2) Wheel Vintiques 15x7 rally wheels
(2) 255/60/15 BF Goodrich radial T/A
(2) Wheel Vintiques 15x8 rally wheels
(2) 275/60/15 BF Goodrich radial T/A (yes they will fit)

Is it really a original California car?

If the car is local to him, San Diego, you can have all kinds of rust issues or no rust issues. If the car is left outside the nice breeze off the ocean brings some salt with it.
