When you consider for $9400 you get an almost brand new car, not bad really. One question though, I thought the burl wood with the inlaid pattern was for VDP only?

The earliest cars were quite a bit different right at the beginning. I had one that had European Valeo (short) square headlights and inlaid wooden trim (scooped all that up for spares) ...and that was a base model too .. so who knows what trim differences got sorted out as the Vin's increased.

I wonder if it has the Self-Leveling Suspenion, and if so, does it leak? A lot of the suspension rubber will probably need to be replaced simply due to age. But what a stunning example!
