Original Dark Grey paint with no major scratches. Couple of dings on drivers side (see photos). Looks like its been garaged most its life so clear coat is still in excellent condition. Does have a couple of very tiny nicks on the passenger side door panel(see photos). Couple of rock chips on front nose and scratch on lower hood(see photo). Nothing that stands out like sore thumb at all. Tail lights are in perfect condition with no scratches are cracks or imperfections.

Excellent tan leather interior with no stains or cuts or rips. Some wear cracks on front seats, but not tears or cuts. All original with no modifications. A/C blows really cold and has been converted to R134.

I don't have a cassette to test it with. Has a Vector radar detector that is working and functional. Old style car cell phone is working. Power windows, mirrors and door locks all work correctly. Front and rear heated seats work. Headlights work perfectly.
