Magnificent (last year of) MK III purchased and pampered by current family since 2003. Previously had received a frame off, nuts and bolts, cosmetic and mechanical restoration performed approx. 1989 to 1991. An inspection of this car shows the quality and attention to detail that went into this beauty. The test of time also shows the knowledge and labor that went into it. You can see over 35+ documents explaining the process.

The latest services were professionally performed in late 2021. Over $6000 was spent to bring current fluids, tires, brakes, battery, clutch, leak down test, to assure lots of fun and no worries. You can see 2 documents explaining this process. Current family performed service & minor repairs and have had no accidents. titles show 112k in 2003 & 108k in 1999. Almost all of the usage was in the first couple years of ownership.

Just add gas and have fun! The classic lines of the 3000’s are like no other.

This vehicle is being sold AS IS and without a warranty, unless otherwise stated.
Information about serial numbers, engine numbers, and any other codes does not guarantee a vehicle’s authenticity. These codes and numbers are not guaranteed to be the same as the information on the vehicle ID or vin, trim tag, engine block, cylinder heads, transmission, differential, or other components within this vehicle. Auto Connection does not guarantee documentation, authenticity, repairs, mechanical work, titles, odometer discrepancies, matching numbers, stamped engines, casting numbers, or any other codes, tags, or numbers.

It is possible that this vehicle will be sold at a higher price than the highest bid (before or after the auction ends), if the reserve is not met.
