I strive to deliver accurate descriptions, but it is possible to miss small deficiencies and will not be held liable for these minor misnomers. This vehicle is sold AS IS/WHERE IS and comes with no warranties, expressed or implied, whatsoever. Known issues: · This car is not restored and reflects 44+ years of enthusiast use · Exterior repaint from 1980’s shows technology and quality of that era · Some dust and orange peel is visible in areas painted in 1980’s · Both front fenders and read lid latch panel have been replaced. Repairs are good quality, but these parts are not original to the car. · Stone chips in paint on front hood, around headlights, and around wheel arches, especially back of LF wheel arch · Various chips and marks in paint around the car including peck in right door and right torsion tube cover area. See photos · LF upper strut mount has been repaired and rework is visible inside trunk, when carpet is lifted · NO rust-through concerns · Kunstharzlack tag shows color code 329-9-2 (Dalmatian Blue/Seeblau). Some experts claim 4848 Oxford Blue is the same color. Tag has been on the car as long as current owner/seller has had it. A mystery… · Certificate of Authenticity shows “Rear Luggage Compartment In Place of Rear Seats”, but there is no evidence to support this in the car or from other data sources. · Windshield weatherstrip cracking at top corners. All other weatherstrips and seals are very good. · Interior trim is unrestored, except for headliner, and shows some light wear · Rear parcel shelf cut on both sides, from installation of shoulder belt harness · LF carpets worn. Others are good · Tool kit is incomplete · Owner’s Manuals incomplete · RF and RR wheels shown on the car has some peck marks in finish. LF and LR OK. See photos · CN36 tires are AT LEAST 34 years old and should not be driven on · Original 6" and 7" wheels are unrestored · Front brake backing plates have been cut down. Rears are included as loose parts. · Headlights work on high beam, only, regardless of dimmer switch position.
