This is the one I have been waiting for. Ready to pull the trigger, but does anyone know anything about this one? Or anyone local that could take a look? I inquired about Marti Report and received message it was put up. Checking now. Thanks!

I always scratch my head when there is a Ebay auction with no buy it now and they state car is for sale locally and they reserve the right to end the auction early.

I guess that means if you call them you can find out the price and buy it but if you go thru Ebay you have to wait until the auction is over.......pretty much second in line to people who call them on the phone. SMH

I would have someone look at it before you buy. Vague discription and no close up pics. Does not say when it was last repainted, implies original, but fender bolts are painted over. Reflections of the lights in the paint are very wavey and with heavy orange peel. Who knows whats under that paint. Engine compartment repainted incorrectly, underbody all painted black. Mileage doesn't matter if everything needed to be redone. Bring a paint gauge.

I notice in one of pictures where under side by the C4 trans there looks like a rusted out torque box on the passenger side. I was wondering why the blue lift arm is farther back than driver side blue lift arm. I think its because the torque box is rusted out. The torque box is one of the most difficult thing to replace. One may have partially rusted frame rail, kick panel, and floor pan associated with the rusted torque box. I recommend one do a careful inspection before bidding on this car.

Can anyone snag that Marti Report and send it to me. I tried, but it is so small I can't read it. It would need to be enlarged. Thanks. Mike
