"The large print giveth and the small print taketh away”- Tom Waits:

Please remember, this is a used car, which, as nice as it may be, is not perfect. I strive to deliver accurate descriptions, but it is possible to miss small deficiencies and will not be held liable for these minor misnomers. This vehicle is sold AS IS/WHERE IS and comes with no warranties, expressed or implied, whatsoever.

Known issues:

· This car is not restored and reflects 33+ years of enthusiast use

· Various small chips and marks in paint around the car

· Very few brush-painted touch-ups around the car.

· 7.9 to 10.3 mil paint thickness on cowl cannot be explained. Cowl has never been painted in second or current ownership and its appearance and fit are as-new

· Left headlight washer hose is disconnected behind bumper. System operates, but left nozzle does not spray.

· Alarm system does not operate

· An exhaust leak can be heard/felt at #6 cylinder that improves when the engine is warm

· Engine does not leak any oil in quantity sufficient to leave spots on the garage floor

· Radio is occasionally loud when switched on. Otherwise OK.
