I noticed the ACDELCO (Made in Mex) versions are no longer listed in RockAuto, I wonder if these had gotten good reviews.

This is what I am thinking. It would be better thinner but (Maybe?)

The door restoration of the door would wait till the rest of the dash would be worked & possibly after any cert of the car.  Or I keep an eye out for a spare from a swap meet

Chris, I am away on vacation & can not get to my glove box cover, can you measure the diameter of the "CUP" holder recess to the nearest 1/32"?

Suggest your restore the cover in the same manner "CHICK" did on his butter nut car, Mask about 3/4" beyond the decal & restore the lid using the same std body working technics. I am in the same boat as you are, my second option was to cut a 1/8" thick plexi round and mount it on top of the original in place decal to protect and preserve it.

Great find, Another = part of your puzzle!

They have a nice report  you can read.

I believe the wheel supplied was independent of the interior style and color. The wood wheels look great on any year by the way.

Does John Z have a FACT sheet like the cooling system design and troubleshooting, if so that will contain a nice set of paths to the cure.

my .02 cents.
More description-definitions of the HARD TO START will help us shot-gun some T/S steps and corrective actions

Let the flaming begin. ( Should read discussion ensues)

When cars are for sale on the open market & miss-represented  the equation changes

As William says Buyer Beware, it just depends on which side of the equation you are on,  that will greatly influence  an owners / sellers motivations.

Dont forget water in the cooling system and a fire extinguisher.

ONLY Water no coolant please learn from my 1985 Emergency room visit to the "Mary Bridge" Tacoma General Burn center stay. (1967 Camaro 454 Upper Catastrophic Rad Hose failure) Thank goodness only Water my burns could have been much worse.

Stay safe.
