Interior- Everything is original. No rips on the leather ... not even the rip typically found when the seats are not raised before lowering the top. Soft top
is also original, it has a small repair on the left side ... see photo. Soft top and hardtop fit very well with no gaps with the door windows. Radio is
original and in working order. All gauges, switches, lights and even the clock is working. AC works although it has been too cold to test its
effectiveness. Heater and fan are in working order.
Body- No signs of rust or accidents The floor pans are in excellent shape and the sub frames still show the original paint. The engine compartment is
clean, correct, and would detail very easily. The bonnet and doors have very good gaps The paint is most likely 20 years old but still looks very good
with just some minor lacquer cracks around the bonnet louvers. Chrome is all original and very good, glass is excellent without wiper scratches on the
windshield, wire wheels are excellent, Dunlop tires are very good.. The boot (trunk) has all original material, tools, manuals, and very good spare tire
and wire wheel.
