#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. "Fair" is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.

First record on Carfax appears in 1992 (most likely original owner). Carfax and other services are not clear as to the number of previous owners, our research would suggest that between 2002 and 2005 there were short period owner-ships by 5 owners up to 2005. The period of 2005 through 2007 would be the person the current owner purchased the car from in 2007.Also noted is (1) minor accident reported. An accident involving a parking lot incident, side swiping the right front corner (only).
