Story Of The Car
I believe I am the third owner of this classic car. I do not possess any records of the original owner but who sold it to me.
I reside in California, unny San Diego and the car by any means has a California Clear Title.
The gentleman that owned the car before me is a professional pilot which made me morecomfortable buying this vehicle knowing how meticulous pilots are.
About The Car Pros
This great car has a 2.4 Liter Naturally Aspirated diesel engine with a 4 manual transmission (plus reverse).Manual models are becoming more rare to be found.
It has a sunroof that work smoothly.
Transmission and engine are solid and very strong.
Theinteriors are in good shape for the age of the car.
Paint is the original which could use a re waxing.
All original parts, othing modded.
About The Car Cons
The front right side of the car has been modified by a "Hit and Run" kind of guy, othing that a body shop could not easily fix.
The front right vent grid is missing, t flew away during a ride in the freeway.
The front left seat isslightly soggy on the left side.
The fuel gauge level works at hisdiscretion, hich is a Very common problem with this car. It would light up however when you reach Reserve.
The handle to open the hood is broken. The cable is now connected to a curved jaw locking pliers.Air condition currently not working.
Why Am I Selling
I am recently starting a new business which will require abigger vehicle to transport food in a refrigerated and safeenvironment.
Final Thoughts
I originally bought this car with the intention of restoring it but I never got that far. I love how this car drives and how it feels. It has an amazing power and great handling capabilities.No, t does not have bluetooth, M radio, lectric windows, eated seats, ouch screen, iri, ris or whatever you expect from a newer car, xcept that IT HAS A SOUL, nd that it it will get you further for less money than your newer car.
