Oh boy does it need!!!
seat tracks and seats installed! shifter cable and shifter , console, cross memebr and trani bolts!, trani lines need install.
sway bar needs installed lower valance, head liner! seat belts,starter, heater hoses, fire for the first time,check firing order install wires,engine harness,
hook up Exhaust "collectors" runs battery cables, thats just off the top of my head,
My plans are to get it running, install the  head liner,hook up the exhaust, get new tires, maybe do seats & door panels and redo interior parts.
refurbish front brakes, check front end. then drive and Enjoy for a bit and sell it.
