THIS IS A NO RESERVE AUCTION - - - THE HIGH BIDDER WILL OWN THIS CAR

SQUEEKY CLEAN CARFAX - - - RUNS, DRIVES, AND LOOKS EXCELLENT

ONLY 71,800 ORIGINAL MILES

A RELATIVELY RARE CONVERTIBLE - - - FEW WERE EVER PRODUCED AND ONLY A HANDFUL REMAIN IN EXISTENCE TODAY - - - AND YOU CAN PROBABLY COUNT ON THE FINGERS OF ONE HAND HOW MANY MIGHT STILL REMAIN IN THE CONDITION OF THE EXAMPLE OFFERED HERE.

WHITE BODY AND PAINT IS MOSTLY ORIGINAL / OVER LIGHT GREY ORIGINAL CLOTH INTERIOR / WITH A NEWER OEM REPLACEMENT OFF-WHITE CLOTH CONVERTIBLE TOP WITH FULL CLOTH HEADLINER AND GLASS REAR WINDOW WITH DEFROSTER / ORIGINAL 14" X 7" ALUMINUM ALLOY WHEELS / STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL 3-PIECE FIBERGLASS CONVERTIBLE TOP BOOT COVER / THE ORIGINAL BIAS-PLY FULL SIZE SPARE TIRE FROM 1985 IS STILL IN THE TRUNK AND HAS NEVER TOUCHED THE GROUND

AND THEY PACKED A LOT OF CAR INTO THIS COMPACT RAGTOP: ORIGINAL BULLET-PROOF 2.4 LITER SOHC ENGINE; REAR WHEEL DRIVE; 4-SPEED AUTOMATIC OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION; MacPHERSON STRUT FRONT SUSPENSION; INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION; RACK AND PINION STEERING; 4-WHEEL POWER DISC BRAKES; etc., etc.

AND LOADED: AIR CONDITIONING WITH CLIMATE CONTROL; POWER CONVERTIBLE TOP; POWER WINDOWS; POWER LOCKS; POWER MIRRORS; TILT STEERING WHEEL; FULL INSTRUMENTATION; RETRACTABLE HEADLIGHTS; ADJUSTABLE FRONT SEATS AND DRIVERS SEAT WITH LUMBAR SUPPORT; AND STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL WORKING AM/FM/CASSETTE STEREO WITH EQUALIZER AND POWER ANTENNA.

THE FOLLOWING ARE ALL NEW WITHIN THE PAST 200 MILES: INSTALLED NEW RADIATOR; INSTALLED NEW WATER PUMP; REPLACED THERMOSTAT AND INSTALLED NEW THERMOSTAT HOUSING; INSTALLED NEW FRONT BRAKE PADS / BRAKE PAD SENSORS / AND ROTORS; BLEED BRAKES AT ALL 4 WHEELS AND REPLACE BRAKE FLUID WITH NEW CASTROL DOT4 FLUID; REMOVE AND REPLACE REAR TRANSMISSION SEAL / FLUSH TRANSMISSION AND REPLACE TRANSMISSION FLUID; NEW ENGINE OIL AND FILTER CHANGE; ENGINE CLEANING. (This all cost over $4K - Receipts come with the car).

RUNS AND DRIVES PERFECT, AND LOOKS GREAT FROM 5-FEET. ALL FUNCTIONS, GAUGES, SWITCHES, HEAD LIGHTS, COURTESY LIGHTS, DASH LIGHTS, TURN SIGNALS, WINDSHIELD WIPERS, HORN, POWER TOP, POWER WINDOWS, POWER ANTENNA - - - AND OTHER POWER FEATURES ALL WORK PERFECT - - - WITH THE ONLY EXCEPTION BEING THE POWER SIDE-VIEW MIRRORS - THE MIRRORS AND LENSES ARE PERFECT AND THE SWITCH WORKS FINE BUT THE LITTLE MOTORS IN THE MIRROR HOUSINGS THAT ACTUALLY ADJUST THE LENSES ARE NOT WORKING AND NEED REPLACEMENT. THE AIR CONDITIONING BLOWS COOL BUT NOT FRIGID ICE COLD.

THE BODY IS EXTREMELY CLEAN AND STRAIGHT WITH ORIGINAL PAINT WITH A FEW STONE CHIPS AND TINY DINGS HERE AND THERE BUT NONE BIG ENOUGH TO PHOTOGRAPH - - - THE SQUEEKY CLEAN CARFAX SHOWS ZERO ACCIDENTS OR BODY DAMAGE OF ANY KIND - - - UNDERCARRIAGE IS AS CLEAN AS THE TOP SIDE - - - VERY CLEAN ORIGINAL INTERIOR WITH PERFECT DASH AND INSTRUMENTS; ORIGINAL CLOTH UPHOLSTERY SHOWS ONLY LIGHT WEAR AND SOILING WITH SOME NOTABLE WEAR ON THE BOLSTER OF THE DRIVERS SEAT, AS SHOWN.

NEWER EXHAUST AND MUFFLER; VERY NICE MATCHED SET OF B.F. GOODRICH RAISED LETTER T/A RADIALS WITH +/- ABOUT 65% TREAD REMAINING, MOUNTED ON THE ORIGINAL ALLOY RIMS. STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL FULL-SIZED BIAS-PLY SPARE TIRE FROM 1985 IN THE TRUNK THAT HAS NEVER TOUCHED THE GROUND - AND STILL HOLDING AIR.

COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL OWNER MANUAL PLUS THE ORIGINAL CONVERTIBLE TOP OWNER MANUAL SUPPLEMENT, OTHER ORIGINAL OWNER DOCUMENTS, AND TWO KEYS, ALL AS SHOWN.

THE CARFAX STILL LIKELY SHOWS THE MILEAGE OF THIS CAR IN THE 715,000 MILE-RANGE WHICH IS AN OBVIOUS ERROR. THE ORIGINAL 1985 BUYER OF THIS CAR HAD PASSED-AWAY AND WHEN HIS WIFE TRANSFERRED TITLE INTO HER NAME SHE INADVERTENTLY INCLUDED THE 10ths DIGIT - - - THUS, INSTEAD OF 71,500 MILES IT WAS INCORRECTLY RECORDED AS 715,000 AT THE TIME OF HER TRANSFER. MY ATTEMPTS TO CORRECT THIS THRU CARFAX HAVE SO FAR PROVEN UNSUCCESSFUL. HOWEVER, WHEN I TRANSFERRED TITLE INTO MY NAME THE FLORIDA DMV PROPERLY VERIFIED THE MILEAGE TO BE 71,600 AT THAT TIME, AND I HAVE THEIR CERTIFICATION WHICH GOES WITH THE CAR.

THIS IS NOT A NEW CAR - IT IS NOW 35+ YEARS OLD - THUS SHOWS GENERAL USE AND WEAR CONSISTENT WITH A 35-YEAR OLD CAR. HOWEVER, I EXPECT THAT THIS CAR IS PERFECTLY CAPABLE OF BEING DRIVEN CROSS-COUNTRY RIGHT NOW IF DESIRED.

I DO NOT SCHEDULE, ARRANGE, OR PAY FOR TRANSPORTING, HOWEVER, I WILL BE HAPPY TO WORK WITH THE TRANSPORTER OF YOUR CHOICE.

I HAVE TRIED TO SHOW AND DESCRIBE THIS CAR AS HONESTLY AND AS ACCURATELY AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE - - - ALL POTENTIAL BIDDERS ARE WELCOME AND ENCOURAGED TO INSPECT AND TEST DRIVE PRIOR TO BIDDING - - - PLEASE E-MAIL OR CALL 863.268.8150 DURING BUSINESS HOURS EASTERN TIME ZONE TO SCHEDULE SUCH INSPECTION / TEST DRIVE - - - PLEASE VIEW ALL IMAGES, AND PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS IN ADVANCE AS THIS CAR IS BEING SOLD AS-IS AT NO RESERVE AND IT COMES WITH NO WARRANTIES WRITTEN, EXPRESSED, OR IMPLIED - - - THE HIGH BIDDER WILL BE THE NEW OWNER - - -

CLEAN FLORIDA TITLE IN HAND READY TO TRANSFER - - - $500 DEPOSIT VIA PAYPAL REQUIRED WITHIN 48-HOURS OF AUCTION ENDING - THE BALANCE BY WIRE TRANSFER, CERTIFIED CASHIER'S CHECK ON A USA BANK, OR CASH REQUIRED WITHIN 5 BUSINESS DAYS OF AUCTION ENDING.
