The car is not a show vehicle but a nice weeked cruiser. I have a multi point inspection completed and all repairs have recently been completed, with all receipts available, except for the following items.The onboard computer is repaired but the screen isn't- it is pixelated and not readable at this time. There is a small leak in the steering gearbox. I have a photo available in the multi inspection report which will be provided in its entirety to any interested bidders. At the time the shop didn't recommend repairing it but the estimated cost was $895. At low speeds in cold weather there is a transient grind that occurs with tight cornering. They didn't feel it was a big enough leak to fix at this time.(This is not to be confused with the tire rub that also occurs at tight cornering. The car is lowered on HnR springs and the wheels are 18" on brand new Yokohama Advan Sport S+ tires in the rear, 275/35/18. The fronts are I move Gen 2 Ironman 235/40/18. I didn't want to go 35 in the front and compromise ride quality to minimize the tire rub with parking lot turns. )The horn doesn't work. This is a later model, smaller and sportier looking steering wheel. So I am not sure if it just wasn't hooked up.The clearcoat on the front left rim is rubbing off from the repair shop taking it through the car wash. Also the right front throwing star wheel is missing the “M” insert and someone recently took the valve stem cap.The interior a pillar lining was ripped some during the recent windshield replacement. The door jam rubber is intact but starting to tear in a few places. Expected for a 30 year old vehicle.All other outstanding service items and maintenance have been completed and the car is currently running amsoil.The car drives straight at all speeds with a new alignment which, along with the front control arms, corrected the small amount of wheel vibration. The car can be driven anywhere confidently.I am into the vehicle over $25k but will sell confidently with no reserve to the highest bidder.I have included a few professional photos to give some better resolution. Also photos of the inspection report are included.
This vehicle gets a huge amount of attention after folks hear the v12 rumble and see the paint on the "new" old car passing them. And it looks amazing with all the windows down since there is no B pillar.Best of luck, please contact me with questions, additional photos, start up videos, drive videos or anything else you need.

A few bidders have asked for a drive video and additional photos.I will start with the professional photos since I have them.I can take more live photos and videos if needed.(note in these photos the lighting makes the door and fenders appear to be different shades of color but they aren't)
If other videos are requested they will be added. I can do the same for the 2003 excursion that I also have listed, for those who have asked. thank you for your comments and input.
