1976 Stingray

Just purchased the car, standing looking at the rear of the car it leans to the right ( passenger side) by 1" and the front measures 1/4". The tires all have the same pressure, where to start?

Hope that its a weak spring............if not, check out the frame, they are well known for going soft. I see you are in Calif, so if its from there, the frame is probably solid.

Could be that it has sat that way since day one.

If the left side is even front to rear as you suggest, then the frame is badly twisted, or the body mounts are bad.

Frame?

I guess its time for the frame shop to look and see before I start buying bushings and so on! Thanks for the heads up!

Logically if the right rear were down then the left front has to be up.. if the frame is rigid. Check those rubber body to frame mounts.
