Runs as good as it looks and hasn't leaked a drop since I bought it in June. The previous owner (since 2003) had the original Sahara Rose professionally reshot, the interior feels (and smells) very authentic and most everything works - the A/C compressor was removed and the heater core bypassed long ago but the dash controls still move air.The factory AM deck is shown in the trunk - it's believed to be repairable but was replaced with a licensed retro AM/FM receiver with an Auxiliary cord to connect to a 3.5mm headphone jack. Sound quality would likely benefit from a new speaker. I made a durable repair to the antenna but technically it's broken near the base.All 5 tires have good tread and the external rubber was probably replaced by the paint shop and is in good shape. The glass is all good and both front Power Windows work great. The rear windows will need some work to get them down. There are a couple minor panel misalignments and modest sideswipe-adjacent damage to the D/S lower rocker panel that also caught the front fender and exposed bare dented metal. A long scratch on the Passenger side door extends to the rear Quarter Panel and should buff out. You'll find the usual masking and drip defects.The carpet and mats are in surprisingly good shape. The Driver's seat has clearly seen more butts than the rest but shouldn't need anything more than a good cleaning anytime soon. There's a tear behind the rear seats and a couple places where the stitching has begun to tear through. Once someone starts riding back there the leather will probably need to be redone but for now it still looks decent.The factory in-dash clock only tells the right time twice a day and the fuel gauge, while not stuck on E, appears to read low and I haven't yet run out of gas to determine just what E looks like. The pump shut off after only 13 gallons with the gauge showing 3/4 tank but the gauge returned to nearly E after less than 50 miles. I'll carry a gas can in the trunk until the tank empties. Otherwise the car seems to be electrically sound.I haven't had a reason to get under the car since purchase but my personal pre-buy inspection on ramps didn't reveal anything too scary.The column shifter was "pinned" with a strategically-chosen allen wrench and I'm not sure what it would take to restore this to original condition. Otherwise the factory 3-speed drives like it should and the ATF looks good. I made significant repairs to the throttle and kick-down linkage that left the go-pedal slipping off the actuator arm. It's definitely fixable but I just put my right foot on the arm.I'm selling this car by early November for whatever I can get for it. If you know a good forever home for it, tell me how much cash you're prepared to fork over.
