VIN: ZFFMA13A6D0047629


Tan Interior (Not Original)

87,760 Miles On The Odometer


-         The engine compartment appears to be unrestored and unmodified. It shows some dirt and oxidation consistent with the car's age and mileage. Car is missing the cap on the brake fluid & coolant reservoir.

-         The chassis shows no significant damage, only typical patina and surface rust consistent with the car's age and mileage. Exhaust components are in good condition showing typical surface corrosion. There is evidence of fluid leaks from the engine and transmission showing as grime on the rear suspension components.  The wheels show oxidation but seem to be   free of damage.   The bumpers show no damage but the finish is consistent with the car's age and mileage.

-         The overall condition of the interior is best described as fair. Door panels, carpet and dash are in good condition and free of damage. The seats are not original to the car, and the head rests were dyed to match the seats at some time but the dye has flaked off leaving the parts looking poor. The headliner fabric is dirty with multiple areas showing water stains and some tears and worn spots. The instruments are clear and appear to operate correctly. Door lock on passenger side do not work correctly

-         The paint is in generally fair condition, but is dull after long term storage. The finish shows some wear and chips typical of a regularly driven car. There are numerous chips on the mirrors, the front bumper and the leading edge of the trunk lid. The paint on the trunk lid does not match as is evident in the photos, indicating refinishing sometime in the car's history. There are a few small rust bubbles showing on the lower left front fender behind the wheel.
