This car is for sale by owner, an individual who simply has too many vehicles (5) and has another on the horizon. The car is in fine condition all around. I'll skip the hyperbole and just relate what I know of its history. Car had two previous owners. Each one owned it for @ twenty years. They were neighbors in southern California. The car has been always garaged and never seen rain. I have service records for the last 20+ years that document the mileage. (The under carriage is spotless.) I brought it to North Carolina 2+ years ago and have also kept it garaged. It has been a dependable (100%) cruiser that I drive every few weeks. It really turns heads and gets compliments wherever it goes.Mechanically, the car is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to take it on a trip.
I am aware of only two minor flaws. First there is a very small crack in the dashboard and secondly there is a small scratch in the paint from someone resting the hardtop on it that is pictured. It does not go through the undercoat. There is an aftermarket radio/cassette installed but the original radio is in the trunk.
I am hoping this car will go to someone who has a good appreciation for these fine vehicles.
