Default New Ride - pics attached 1985 VDP

Hi All -

Thanks for the help in getting me started on the new toy. Heres a couple pics if anyone interested. Just picked it up, one owner, all service records, original SoCal car. looks to be totally rust free.

Have all the books, the VDP tape, cleaning kit and original tin of touchup paint. All three lambswool mats, etc etc.

Just finished transmission service, valve check/adjustment (powder coated valve covers while off), urethane bushing upgrades and major stereo upgrade (bluetooth phone and audio streaming, pandora, iheart, as well as all new 4" speakers). Put the Nardi wheel on (have the original which is in perfect condition).

Fun car. Drives great, even A/C works well.

Those Ser IIIs are wonderful cars. The most modern of all antique automobiles.

Looks like a nice thing and should be able to stay that way where you are, as long as you have sun free parking :-) enjoy!
