Seller Description

Oxford Green over tan manual transmission 105K miles. The tan leather interior is in wonderful condition and I’ve put in elbow rests and a drink console (they’re removable). Black leather in Socal makes no sense so I waited to buy a car with non-black. Rare slicktop and better headroom. The exterior is super-nice for a daily driver, in really nice for a weekend car, but it’s not museum condition and I’m finicky. The pictures speak for themselves. One dent below the passenger door that I have no idea how it got there. No visible evidence of any spot welds ripping through or any rear-end problems.

I bought this as a forever car 30 months ago and replaced everything plastic and consumable in the entire cooling system even though I drove it through LA traffic in 100F with the needle never going higher than 55%. As-new wheels and tires. GC adjustable coilovers. The radiator shroud broke at a weak point at the top, the replacement broke in the same spot in the mail, and the 3rd one broke in the same place, too, so I JB Welded the plastic and it’s been fine but ugly ever since. I have a Blackstone oil report for it which doesn’t show any contaminants, but it’s the only data point so they couldn’t draw conclusions until testing another time. Just smogged

After parking for several months there were 3 drops of oil below the differential, but it never leaks anything else. The heat duct blend door is recalcitrant when moving but it still works and the AC is strong. It needs to be driven more than once every 6 weeks to keep the battery happy, or you can use a tender--the antitheft and an always-on dual USB are the voltage culprits. I have the original coilovers and steering wheel and shifter boot. I have a really nice car cover and lots of other spares and consumables. I have a spreadsheet with everything I’ve ever done to the car, as well as every time I filled the gas.

I would take this car on a 5,000 mile road trip with no worries.

It sounds and looks like almost every part of this coupe has been touched since we last saw it 2.5 years ago. I like the new wheels and steering wheel, and an oxford green sunroof-delete is always cool.
