 I bought this about one year ago in west Texas. A used dealer had bought the car in an estate auction. The original owner had kept the car garaged and used it in part to tow behind his RV(some of the 99, 311 miles were put with the engine off). I had planned on keeping this car for the remainder of my life but I have encountered some health issues which will require me to move to a senior living type place with restricted and limited parking. This the last of my "goodies" to go. Car needs nothing now but I bought a supply of things from Rock Auto that I was planning on using in the future .  Car comes with 5 air filters,11 oil filters,1 wheel cylinder,1 clutch plate.  Car comes with a stock tow bar and can be towed using a 7/8" ball with a 4 wire flat plug for lights.The seat covers are there to protect the near perfect seats. You would be hard put to find another of these cars in this good condition.
I had a new timing belt put on about 6 weeks ago. Car comes with a owner's manual and a shop manual purchased off ebay. Thanks for looking.

I realize that everyone has to start sometime and after I call you maybe we can unblock. Just trying to eliminate "jokesters" and keep it fair for serious bidders. Thanks


  1. This looks vaguely alfa-esque from side profile. I remember a friend's mom had one of these new. Well okay she bought it new but it spent most of it's life in the field behind their house as a mouse-condo. Had about 30k miles on it from what I remember, and it "just died". We used it as a fort.

  2. A slow, clattery rolling ode to all that is gray.

    RyanM - what spell check program do you use? The damn thing changed what I guess you meant as "grotesque" to some really odd replacement. Good luck figuring that out.

  3. To me looks 3/4 Peugeot 504 from the side view so this oil burner is earning it's name....
