I paid top dollar for my SC at the time. It was cheap by half of todays standards.
Good luck!

Car is in for a PPI and so far it looks good. Please let me know if you see anything on the pics below. Liking the factory rear wiper, spoilers and locking diff... Any and all thoughts are appreciated:










All glass and paint is original, Carfax shows one prior owner.

Not sure how to verify engine: #64106408 and trans #G50012 and J11473 as original. Thoughts there are appreciated.

It has had a R134 conversion, so it is probably worth checking the thoroughness of the conversion.

Not a real sticking point on a PPI -- but it would be nice to know if it got new barrier hoses or not. If it was just Viton 0-rings, a flush, and a new dryer, it is going to need a refrigerant top-off every 3-4 months.

May not matter much in PA, but I BAKED driving mine from DC to Hershey, and it was tough getting the wife back into it after.

Looks like a nice car.

Hope it works out!

Humm
Do not like those wheels on a Carrera, is the corrected dated Fuchs with the car?
Under the car looks odd, never seen a cleaned pans like that with the paint outlined.

Pans are not like that, looks like a aggressive power wash, should not have done that

Itís fine

I own a 88 and 89 and to me itís ok under the car, but someone cleaned off any factory applied material, looks like just raw metal and bleeding thru is the red paint on the panel gaps.

Good thing it was not painted
