Super Bright Euro spec HID headlights, US DOT bumpers, clear corner lights, Chrome bundcake rims need some cleaning though. All original Zebrano wood trim is included. This car has always been in Southern California and Arizona, It has never been driven over salty snowy roads. Southern California only gets about 5 inches of rain per year on average. Most of it's lifetime has been in Los Angeles and Orange County. Only rust is on some upper body panels, possibly due to overnight moist air condensation. I have sanded and primed some of these spots just to prove that it can be easily treated. there is no underbody rust at all. In the midwest, your old cars will get rust on the rocker panels, this car has none of that. Sold in an as-is condition. It runs properly, steering, and suspension are in great condition, transmission and engine work properly has all safety features, and is registered and licensed for California right now. I put a lot of work and parts into it. the price has gone up!
