It comes from California where it was hardly used during recent years
The bottom is totally rust-free (see photos)
The paintwork has a few small spots in places (however, the bonnet and boot lid have just been repainted)
The interior is still nice (but does have a few signs of wear)
The soft-top is okay (it does have 2 minor repairs), please see the photos

We renewed the following when we received the car:
Petrol pump, filters, 8 injectors, spark plugs, various hoses, etc.
The fuel distributor and the entire fuel system were cleaned
Compression was measured: is good
Ignition etc. adjusted
The car runs, shifts and drives well
But it will need to be brought back to life after standing still for a long time (there’s always something that could be improved)
4 nice Michelin tyres and the spare wheel is still new in the boot
Instruction booklet and still with the first aid kit and a Blaupunkt radio
The chrome rims do have a few tiny dents

No hardtop
