JWL, I just recently purchased my 87' with twice the mileage...engine compression was off by 10% in 3 cylinders. Paid $25K. This was 14 months ago and i've just completed a $8K rebuild over the last 8 months. I found broken rings in 4 of 6 cylinders.

Be sure you know what you are buying into...if the motor needs rebuilding, the $35K asking may be a little high IMHO.

Good luck!
