Tilt away steering does work as it should, interior lights work. Car has been sitting, we put fresh gas and a new battery in it and the car fired up and ran. The longer it ran the better it seemed, but still hazes smoke. I do not think it is burning engine oil. Similar cars that are sorted are bringing $90-110K at auction. We have uploaded a youtube video of the car running. It can be seen by searching on youtube: Tom's 1969 Shelby GT-500
