Purchased the car from a guy in Sioux Falls He said he had it for three years and drove it regularly. He got it from a "collector" in Colorado. Some one was doing work but it wasn't the PO i got it from. I have begun some basic dismantling of the interior. The trunk contained various parts to include:
a) two new rear Bilstein sport shocks;
b) four new door seals, one for each
c) front turn signal seals
d) two cv boots,new;
e) various belts, filters and bags of nuts, screws, clamps ;
f) two Zenith carbs, one of which is COMPLETELY disassembled. I mean, I have never seen so many parts and pieces. Must have taken hours just to take it apart. Got to be worthless, except for parts.

I had some meager hope that the bags with the seals contained front or rear windshield gaskets, but alas, no.

So the car looks really good and most everything is there. Here are pics to judge for yourself.

If it truly is near flawless, that's about half the usual price for them.

The downside is that it's from a later E3 with the cut out for the "fasten seat belt" light.

Can always put a gauge pod where that cut out is. That's what I did w/my 2002.

That's cool. I emailed the seller. Shipping may be an issue but no reply yet. Polyvance makes some great products for dash repair and filling.

Restoration begins in the trunk.

All linings present but in bad shape. Cardboard all broken and missing tabs. Rear light cover broken in half and missing tabs and ends. Shock covers falling to pieces, missing ends and curved pieces.(do they make thinner plastic that's more brittle?) Luckily, the left had what the right was missing and vice versa so i was able to copy,guess. Everytime I touched them to make repair, they cracked more. After great pains and much time, they are whole, fit well, much stronger and ready to paint. Cardboard pieces solid and sending to OIL to be covered.
Light cover lost all rubberized paint.
