Wheel chrome looks almost as good as new with only very minimal chrome wear. Nice and shiny looks like new. The only paint flaw that I see is the spot on the roof. It looks like a factory paint flaw to me and not a chip.
Run your finger over it and you can barely feel it. You need to have really good lighting to see it especially if you aren't looking for it.
The yellow blends so well with the silver casting that it's not as easy to see as you would think. It's not like it stands out depending on your lighting. The little black spots in the paint that I see in the pics, I can't see any of those just looking at the car.
No toning at all from what I see. Looks as good as new.
Overall, this car looks spectacular. The paint flaw on the roof is far less serious than it seems. Beautiful overall that it detracts from that paint flaw on the roof.
Every serious redline collecor needs an OLDS 442! This is one of the nicest I've seen one you realize the roof is not really that bad. It displays very nicely and would be a great addition to any collection of redlines.
