Overall the car is in great mechanical condition. Paint is in good shape with the usual small chips and surface dings as you’d expect to see on a car this age. Interior is in very good condition. Seats and carpet without tears/holes and still look reasonably new. The top has a 1″ tear along the leading edge on the passenger side from where it rubbed the roll bar. I have not found a good place to have it repaired and have a small piece of black duct tape over it currently to protect it. Other than that, the top is in good condition. The a/c compressor is currently not working — the only major mechanical issue with the car. ┬áThe compressor and lines need to be replaced, but having been living in sunny California, I haven’t bothered to get it repaired.

In the 8 years I’ve owned the car, I’ve only used Castrol Synthetic motor oil and Redline transmission fluid.

We are looking for around $8,900.
