Hey fellow Nutmeg-er!
Would you post the Marti report and some more interior photos?
What is the trans?
Seat belt config?
What's the scoop with the non CS grill / fog lights?

I have an abundant amount of picture and the Marti report on my company website. They will not allow me to post the link, so you have to look up Car Time Used Cars. That should take care of it :)

I'm not an expert on CS. I bought the car as it is because I thought it was just a beautiful car. The Marti report is posted on my website. We're not trying to sell a perfect CS. I'm sure I'll be properly educated on this site.

Here is the link to the web site.

I am very curious as to where you found this car. Any connections to Potsdam, NY?
This one is nearly identical to the one I saw back in 1982 for sale for 10K - I am still kicking myself for not buying that car back then. There can not be that many White with Red Stripes CS on the East Coast.

Would get a photo of the full seats and the head liner?
What is the transmission? C4 is listed on the Marti but with a 351 modification the tranny should be a C6 (I believe).

25K is a bit steep for a CS with the stock deviations and the 31K asking on your site is well . . . A fully restored, numbers matching 302 CS went for about 30K a few months back.

I think your price is too high. For correctness you should command a premium which it isn't. The original configuration of C code and C4 auto is the most common car made. Cut your price and it would be more realistic.

Good luck, JQ
