This is a very rare grey market car which was only sold to the Europeanmarket. Where the US only received V8 variantswith big clunky bumpers, this example features the light and peppy inline six m110 motor along with the slim and elegant euro bumpers. It also retains the flush euro headlights not seen on US cars as well. The inline six motor produces a peppier, more responsive feel while being lighter and enhancing handling. The car receiveda major tune up in February 2020. It runs and drives very well. The brakes are old and need tobe replaced. The shift bushings are also worn and could be replaced. The arm rest has a tear in it which could be re-upholstered easy. This is a very solid and straight car. It is very difficult to come across these in this condition here in the US. The car is being sold AS IS. International buyers welcome. This is a no reserve auction, serious buyers only please. Feel free to reach out with questions.
