This vehicle is in exceptional condition, and shows the level of care it has been
given since new.
The exterior shows only a handful or so of truly minor marks in the painted
surface, mostly miniscule stone chips. These have been touched up with correct
color paint, and do not detract from the overall presentation of the car in any way.
The survivor quality of this car is evident from every viewpoint.
Glass is in exceptional condition with no cracks, chips, or lamination issues.
Chrome, trim, and badging are all factory original and correct, and show wonderfully.
Factory original polished aluminum rims look remarkable, and are wrapped in
correct spec and size rubber.
Interior shows little if any signs of use, and only the normal patina one expects of
high grade materials.
No cracking of any plastic, no rips or seam pulls, and no sign of any prior repair either.
T-Tops are in exceptional condition, and include the original inside covers that
show wonderfully as well.
Carpet shows wonderfully, and is original down to the slight pulling away at the
bottom of each kick panel that is evident in the photos. Very minor, but since the
entire car as a whole is so stellar, I felt I needed to address it.
Factory AIR CONDITIONING works perfectly, as do all of the other electrical and
mechanical options including cruise, gauges, tilt, and the 8-track stereo with 8 free
The rear stowage area shows as new, and all lids are functional and in perfect condition.
The pull over cover works as it should.
Rear defrost functions as it should.
The car is mechanically perfect, and an inspection by our technician found zero
issues to address.
No leaks, no noises, no functional issues, no handling issues. Every single item on
the car does what it should, and does it well.
The car drives out like a new car, which is no surprise as it has only amassed a
scant 13,144 miles in the past 32 years!
Simply put, you cannot find another example of this car in nicer condition
regardless of price. In a sea of black and silver anniversary cars, this lone red
warrior stands alone, and defines itself as a true collectible from that era.
