Good older repainted to original color Silver. Very very few paint chips.
Rustfree westcoast car.
Interior is black leather, and appears to be original and in good condition.
This is an Euro model with the high-power engine.
You thought the US models are fast – try a Euro model and you will never want a US model again. This car is an excellent driver, - no trailer queen.
Only Euro models can claim the throne as the "Fastest European Sedan" in 1978.
It has 289 horsepower, 39 more than the US version. Too bad we don't have an Autobahn!!
Everything is working as of placement of ad. I only say this because on a car that is 37 years old things break, but lately everything has been working for quite a while now.
I love this car and drive it all the time. I am loosing garage space, so some toys need to go.
Suspension works and stays up.
A/C is ice-cold.
New stainless steel exhaust.
Has Nology HotWires and Silver spark plugs (makes the car run superb).
Recent oil change.
New hood pad.
Over the years, someone changed the bumpers from US style back to Euro style. Also note the Euro head lights. I love the look!
Speedo shows 148,059 KM (92,000 miles).
It appears the car was imported to the USA in 1985 and had one owner until I bought it.
Don't buy a show car and pay way too much. You will feel sick the first time you drive it and you get a scratch. And it will happen.
Of course, if you don't drive these cars, they break. They love to be driven and they must be driven.
This car gets driven all the time and the car loves it!
Left headlight has a stone chip (filled in now).
Near drivers left foot, side carpet worn.
One bubble on roof near sun roof.
Will consider interesting trades, – cars, motorcycles, gold and silver coins.
