Description

A swing of the low slung door reveals a nifty armrest covered in white leather and sporting shiny knobs and actuators. Inside wonderfully rounded over overstuffed bomber styled buckets with some vertical tuck and roll inserts and piped smooth bolsters await your body to be enveloped. A simple central console is running between the seats and has a storage area and ash receptacle. The dash is also a marvel of engineering and styling with a mix of circular bezeled gauges and a vertical rectangular central panel with a cluster off other important gauges. The dash switches over from white to red, white being the padded topper, the red for the dash front, then back to white below. In the center are the climate control sliders which reside in an aluminum diamond textured strip. An original Becker AM/FM radio is in and right next to it a clock. In front of the passenger is a red door glovebox with more aluminum for the top strip and white metal lower, in each corner is a large round AC vent. The passenger's side of the dash top is slightly wrinkled. Beautiful tweed tan carpeting floods the floors and back storage area which is sans any seating. Just a 2 seater for this sporty coupe. All beautifully preserved and like new looking overall.
Under the hood is like new with the inline fuel Injected 6 cylinder engine. It weighs in at 2.3 liters and is like new with no corrosion or rusting, not even any dirt! On the back is a 4-speed manual transmission and way back power goes to a 3.75 rear axle. Just pristine condition for this engine bay.
