It needs the rear quarter reflectors to be a 68.

At my dad's auto body shop we did crazier mods for folks. Back in the day handicapped drivers had few options for driving cars. A plausible reason for this type of mod would have been to accommodate someone that had limited or no use of their left arm or, for some other reason, could not reach the original E brake.

Folks in Australia, for some reason, generally hate the OEM ebrake. So the swap shown is pretty common here. Somehow they think it is "better", not sure why as I've never had a problem using the OEM to stop on a rare occasion (once) or hold a car in a parking spot when needed... folks love "upgrades"!

Looks to be in pretty good shape!
