This car is turn key, meaning, you can get it in it now and drive it cross country and everything works. Lights, turn signals, heat, ac, windows, gauges, etc.
I love this car and the reason I'm selling it is because I'm upgrading to a newer C3 and I do not need to sell this in order to get my new one.
-Was well maintained by a mechanic, the previous owner before me.
-Doesn't smoke or burn oil.
It is not a show car. If you're looking for that, you'll need to increase your budget by another $15k. This is a driver and from about 10 ft away, it does look AND sound like show quality.
It does NOT HARD start and literally, even after sitting for a week, will start IMMEDIATELY and idle nicely. It has a slightly largeR cam in it to give it a nice growl during idle; see youtube videos of it.
INTERIOR 7/10 - it is incredibly CLEAN for being all original. NO cracks in the dash. Seats are in great shape; no tears...starting to see some wear on the edge of the drivers side. Carpet nice; no stains. Door panel on drivers side has some parts on it that may need touching up. Very, very nice interior. One of the reasons I bought it. If the original interior was this clean, it was well taken care of. You will see a lot of $3-8k vets in this era where the interior is just trashed.
EXTERIOR 7/10 - it was a cheap paint job, but it is NEW paint and shines up great. From about 10 feet away, it looks show quality and beautiful! If you inspect it closely, you can tell it was cheap; a few bubbles, over spray, not taped well during paint, etc. Wheel aluminum is very nice, but wheels may need a little cleaning, but are satisfactory for sure.
ENGINE 7/10 - this engine was well maintained by the previous owner who was a mechanic. It sounds great. Starts right up. Idles nice and drives incredible. Steering is tight. Shocks are fine. Engine bay, which HAS NOT been detailed, looks incredibly clean. There is some surface rust underneath, but not much.
