A rare car, and in
what looks like good condition bodily with a respray evident from some time in
the past, it retains its nice matching cloth interior which shows
the expected localised signs of age/wear. A stereo has since been
located in the glove box to fill the hole but is not connected.

lowered suspension and deep lip x-spoke alloy wheels, this rare car shows
just 176,109km and was driven to the sale by its enthusiast
owner.For more information - contact firstname.lastname@example.org
