Description

The paint shows well overall and easily has a nice driver quality presentation. There are flaws to be found but nothing warrants major refinishing. There is a crack or chip to be found here or there, and the only major item is the color on the drivers door which is a touch off as it was re-sprayed due to a minor scratch/dent a few years ago. The black targa top has been well kept over the years and appears to have been refinished at least once. The panel fitment, gaps, and shut lines throughout all fall within the appropriate clearances indicating that this car has never been totally apart or damaged. The chrome trim, bumpers, and bezels all show as original and thus, driver quality with some scattered, mild pitting to be noted under close inspection. The rubber items all show well; supple for their age with no severe cracking or dry rot. The glass is all crisp and clear, free of any common flaws (chips, cracks, scratches). The wheels show as driver quality with no major blemishes present but it is to be noted that there are some minor scratches/chipping in the paint. These blemishes would only be noticed under close inspection and do not require any immediate tending to. The theme and quality is consistently that of a driver quality example, a good old car that should be driven just as it is.
Moving to the interior, it is obvious that there is a mix of un-touched original components with others showing as nearly new. The seats have been reupholstered about 16 years ago, but were done well with nearly no use since. Since their refreshing, the seats have not developed any fading, cracking, or evidence of mistreatment showing as new. The door jams show well with the correct and original VIN tag still in place. The carpets, like the seats, were also refurbished showing as new, but correct. The more authentic original components such as the center console, dash, door panels, firewall, steering wheel, etc… all show as nicely kept originals reflecting the low original miles and give the car a certain authenticity with welcoming patina. The gauges are all fully operable and show without fault while the chrome bezels that surround the switches and levers on the center console beginning to show some pitting which could most likely be remedied with further polishing.
The rear trunk is well preserved and in tact with the Hirschmann antenna motor still showing as new with period stickers in place. The front trunk is identical in appearance, very original and untouched with the electrical junctions and fuse box showing as incredibly well preserved and untouched from new. An inspection of the underside will show a consistency conducive to the rest of the car, displaying no evidence of ever developing any significant, rust, damage, or modifications. An item that it could benefit from, is a proper detailing to bring up some of the finishes.
