The fiberglass body was professionally repainted in Steel Grey metallic and is equipped with color-matched removable T-tops, pop-up headlamps, and vented front fenders that wear the Stingray emblem.

Inside, the sports coupe sit black vinyl bucket seats, matching door panels and a dashboard that houses the factory Pioneer AM/FM/cassette deck.

The 5-digit odometer shows 1,000 miles, which the seller believes to be 101,000.
