Default Very Nice Series I For Sale

It's not my car. I ran across the ad and thought to share this survivor example in case anyone is looking for one.

I took just a quick peek but looks much better than most Series I cars that we see for sale. And price seems reasonable.

The only thing that jumped out at me was that it is riding very high. I wonder if the springs were recently replaced?

Somebody needs to grab this car

Cheers
DD

I agree, Doug. Maybe the owner used springs different from factory specs?

I spoke to Benjamin the owner earlier today on behalf of someone else who was interested. Very nice genuine guy.
Prob mid 80's respray/refresh, originally southern car but no rust to speak of, air con not functioning, slight carb tuning issues, been driven 5 -10k recently (big plus in my book), leather has minor tears and fixable issues. Gas gauges not working, probably senders. Handbrake works. Minor tranny pan leak.
Will need suspension bushings, gas tank flush and all the usual stuff but seems like a great baseline for a driver and looker IMO.
