The clutch was in inspected but had very little wear so it was no replaced.
It has had regular oil changes every 3,000 miles since I bought it.
The body is solid with no rust in the floors or frame.
No accident damage that I have seen. There are a few small parking lot pings and dings but nothing major.
The bad.
It was repainted from green to red prior to my purchase. It was a very nice paint job but it was long ago and it is ready to paint again. The passenger side and trunk lid have crazing in the paint that you can see in the pictures. The drivers side and front of the car are pretty good but the clear coat on the headlight panel is starting to peel.
There is a small rust bubble on the RR fender wheel arch. See the last photo.
The drivers seat has a hole in the bolster.
The is a clunk in the front end when you near either lock. You generally notice it parking in tight spots.
There is a transmission leak, robably the rear seal.
Tires will need replacing soon.
No jack but the lug wrench is there.
I have all the documentation since I purchased the car in 2008 and will include it with the car.
I have a clear California Title for the car.
Car starts and runs well. I recently licensed it as CA No-operational (as of 3/12/2006). Up until that time we drove it regularly including a trip to San Francisco last month which is about 110 miles round trip.
Car has always run well. My wife used it as a commute car 50 miles a day for quite a few years. She has a TR7 automatic now so this car is surplus to our needs.
I am willing to help load it on a truck or trailer. It runs and drives but I would not recommend an extended trip prior to going through it. It is not currently registered for use on the street so you cannot just drive it home without doing paperwork first.
