I checked the vin# and the year and model are ok. The slant nose is the issue.

Of course I have already checked that it all steel (no fiberglass), there is a single motor for the lights, etc.

One thought is that the special ext. color and interior kind of prove that it went through the "special wishes" program



Beautiful car although I don't believe a widebody slope was offered on an SC. I helped do a number of these on SC's years ago some with and others without the slope nose. Some of them were very well done and some weren't. It would appear the rear is not correct with the small rear vents behind the arches. Either way it is a nice looking car.

I stumbled upon this 86 turbo with aftermarket steel kit today I believe it has the single motor but I wasn't buying. Seems to have a messaged engine and is nicely done but not perfect has some paint issues and a dyed interior. I am guessing it was tan now red but is a sharp car for the price they are asking it looks like a nice ride as a driver. Didn't look too closely.
