Options include fog lights and dual spot lights, and the wide white walls were replaced recently. There are service records for the past five years. There is a new spare tire in the trunk.
The older resteration did not include all new wiring however, a complete new set of wiring harneses (approx. $1,800) come with the car but have not been installed.
The Highlander Interior features leather seats with plaid inserts and aftermarket seat belts. The art deco inspired dashboard has extensive chrome, with radio, heater, clock, and the optional dual spotlights. All gauges and accessories workbut the speedometer is erratic and the odometer has recently stopped. Also, the turn signal switch is ify but should be OK once the new wiring is installed.
