Odometer Reads:
30,439.4 (at the time of the photograph)
I do not believe this odometer readings reflects actual mileage based upon the condition of the car. It is likely that the odometer has rolled over and therefore would read 130,439, however I can not be 100% positive that this is, or is not true, and the car could actually have 30,439 original miles.
The car is not highly optioned however I believe it does have the following RPO's:
A31 - Power Windows
C49 - Rear Defogger
C60 - Air Conditioning
D35 - Sport Mirrors
K30 - Cruise Control
MX1 - Automatic Transmission
UP6 - AM/FM Stereo W/ CB Radio
U75 - Power Antenna
N37 - Tilt / Telescopic Steering Column
U81 - Dual Rear Speakers
This is a running, and driving car. It is overall in good condition however will need a few items addressed to be perfect.
The wheels were originally silver, and have been painted black at some point in time.
The power antenna mast is broken, and does not work.
The AM/FM Stereo W/ CB Radio is not installed in the car, however it is included with the car. In its place is a generic aftermarket brand AM/FM CD Player W/ AUX, and USB Inputs.
The front suspension will need to be inspected for loose parts, and will need an alignment.
The drivers side mirror adjustment knob is missing.
The seams, and stitching on the seats is in poor condition. The leather is loose in areas, and the seats will likely need to be re-upholstered.
The leather wrapping on the steering wheel is sun-faded, and cracking and will likely need to be re-upholstered.
The floor mats are not original to the car as they should also be beige, and not black.
The shifter knob appears to be loose as if it is missing its jam nut.
Some cosmetic blemishes in the paint. Most noticeably a few small chips on the drivers side of the hood near the hood fender gap.
The front Clip does appear to have been re-sprayed for unknown reasons as there are some traces of paint over-spray on the windshield, and other areas.
The car has had some recent service including:
Fuel Pump
Fuel Filter
Rear Leaf Spring
This is a great project car, and in my opinion is a very rare interior / exterior color option. The car is VERY clean, and is not rusted anywhere. The car does run, and drive with no serious mechanical problems. The car has been well cared for its whole life, and does not appear to have ever been neglected, or abused.
