I know what you're thinking: "CFlo, what the eff man. This is just some early '80s beige appliance. The PINNACLE?!? Go back down in your troll hole and think about what you've written." Normally I might be inclined to agree. Having owned several 242s however, I can not only insist but prove that the 1983 DL model is the one to have...or at least that it represents the most optimal compromise.
This beige beauty here in West LA is about as creampuffy as they come - a great candidate for preserving like the covetous kooks some of us are, or lightly modifying with wheels, lowering, and some boost. The price is more than reasonable if the mileage can be verified, the car runs as good as it looks, and AC works as claimed. There are a few small cracks in the dash but a nice fuzzy mat would help hide them, or a dash swap if you can find a cherry brown one (not likely) and have a free Saturday for the labor.
If you're going to swap the dash or embark on any other interior upgrades, do yourself a favor and install a nice sporty steering wheel. My own '81 242 DL is shown for reference above with a Momo Prototipo. And a swapped dash. That job is not fun!
The only real issue I see with this featured car (besides the fact that I can't buy it for myself at the moment) is the slushy elephant between the front seats. The automatic trans will sap any semblance of power that the ~100hp Redblock ever thought about making, but at least it will provide smoothness for cruisin' the boulevards. Manual swaps are straightforward in 240s, as is just about any mechanical job, if that's your thing. Tough call, this one: keep it hermetically sealed, or use as the basis for an epic enthusiast build?
