Paint

• Believed to be the original paint as when owner took delivery from Dealer new
• Mostly upper surfaces and between pin striping on each side, you will find paint cracking on most of the hood, top, and trunk panels. It shows up more under LED lighting then it does outside under sun or overcast (see all pics enlarged)
• Finish is very smooth, highly polished and shiny, and seems to match properly all the way around car
• Their are a few minor fine scratches that can be hardly seen and most likely could be improved by rubbing out if wanted (top RR door, RF fender, most significant) (see pics)
• Between the headlight area you will find maybe 6 or so pin head size nicks from normal driving wear. Also chips LF door, trunk edge, R fuel fill, & couple more (see pics)
• Note- you will see some white substance along the front edge of sunroof opening at rear. This is actually wax that didn’t get wiped off
• Pin striping appears to be a decal style and not cleared over / coloring-upper tan and lower gold (meaning it could possible be remove if preferred)(not 100% sure)

Body

• Entire painted body appears to be just as it was produced new in terms of being straight and with correct gaps between panels. The only exception we could find is a small door ding in RR door. (see pics)
• The fits of the hood, trunk, and all 4 doors look appropriate and not looking out of alignment. (see pics)

Magnetic paint gauge

• We took a couple random readings on each body panel. We did not detect any unusual large deviation in readings that would indicate past issues
• The top panels (between the striping) we see a fairly consistent 12-16 mils range of materials.
• The side panels (below the striping) readings were in the 8-12 mils range for the most part

Bright Work

• All bright work appears to be properly secured to the car and we don’t find any pieces that have been damaged. Seems all are just as installed at factory
• Outside in natural light, all appears close to new or maybe a couple year old car
• We don’t see any actually pitting or deep scratches of any bright work
• Under bright LED lights, you will notice the window surround moldings might have a few slight scuffs. Bumpers, grill, gas fillers, door handles, Look more like a 4 yr old car and not almost 40 year old car. (see pics especially up close pics)
• Black bumper inserts show little exposure to outside and have survived well

Glass

• All 8 glass windows have the “TRIPLEX” logo
• All appear clear, no discoloring, no de-lamination, no bulls eyes, no cracks, no deep scratches
• The windshield has a few pin head size nicks from normal road wear & under LED lights shows minimum wiper wear (top 3-4” of wipers swipe)(see pics)
• The remaining 7 windows appear close to new condition
• Rear window was replaced in 1989 / A ball came through garage window pane and broke rear window

Interior

• The interior has held up remarkable well with the limited exposure and storage conditions the car experienced. Again, more like a 4 year old car.
• To sit in it, you feel like your in the Jaguar showroom in 1986. Even the smell!
• We don’t see anything that appears as not being OEM
• Dash panel (in black) and the drivers door arm rest show almost new
• The only exception noticed is slight bolster & bottom scuff on driver seat and driver rocker plate scuff (see pics)

Chassis

• Vehicle has a Uni-body style design and doesn’t have a separate body and frame. Body support members and floor pans seem to be free of any rust perforation with a light coating of wd40 added on most surface rust to preserve further.
• Without being completely covered with undercoating, you are able to better see and understand the actual condition of underside components.
• Drive train shows light seepage of oil from typical areas but nothing extreme showing (see underside pics of engine, transmission, steering rack, and rear end)

Engine Bay

• Under the hood appears just as it was originally designed and built with the exception of maintenance items including battery replacement
• Current servicing included oil & filter change, fuel filters, brake fluid flush, coolant flush, fuel gauge send unit, AC retrofit to R134A, (see pics of bill)
• Engine was not highly detailed so you can see it in mostly original state.
• In the left and right back near engine, we did find a few nut shells from a visitor but no damage was detected
• Note- Battery hold down bracket is included but 1 barrel nut is lost and so can’t be installed properly (trying to get one and install)

Trunk

• Trunk materials show no wear and maybe a small spot to vacuum or clean on floor (see pics)
• Jack & handle stored inside factory matching bag with tie
• Spare tire and wheel in storage well
• Full size fitted Beverly Hills cloth cover included (older)(see pics)
• Regular fitted carpet mats (4)
• Ultra plush mats, part of Vanden Plas package (3 only)(per manual-factory doesn’t supply driver with one)

Tires & Wheels

• 4 Yokohama AVID-TRZ P215-70-15’s See date Codes (2009 on all 4)(see pics)
• Tread depth 11/32 on all 4 tires
• Tires do not show any cracking of outside facing sidewalls
• Rim finish has held up well with just a little slight cracking on each wheel visible under bright lighting (see pics)
• Suggest new tires for road use

Mechanical

• Headlights work (high beam & low beam)
• Front parking lights work
• 4 side marker lights work (red & amber)
• Turn signals work (L & R)(front & back)

Test Drive

• Chad has driven the car about a dozen times and totaled approx. 20 miles

• Steering operates very smoothly (full L to R), precisely, and very responsive
• Engine starts quickly and runs well, (hot or cold) and accelerates and slows smoothly as well (requires 87 Octane unleaded)
• Transmission up-shifts and downshifts smoothly and seems to be appropriate (including reverse)
• Brakes stop you quickly with assist / don’t notice any pulling or rotor pulsation

Conditions of Sale:
Auto Connection is a 3rd party agent, assisting both buyers AND sellers. The vehicles they sell are from private owners and collectors, and they provide advertising, marketing, and consulting services for individuals and companies.

The Auto Connection representative has physically viewed the item being sold. The information comes from the seller and other research sources. Auto Connection is not responsible for any misrepresentation by the seller and/or errors in research results, including history statements of vehicle history, repairs, etc.

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. The potential for reproduction paper documentation exists, as well as restamped engines and reproduced trim/data tags.

Auto Connection has described this vehicle to the best of their knowledge, but does not guarantee the accuracy of the description. Prospective buyers are encouraged to conduct their own due diligence, including a physical inspection of the vehicle in person, or through a qualified third party inspector/appraiser.

The vehicle will remain for sale until a buyer has placed a deposit on it. This deposit is nonrefundable with the exception of the vehicle being severely misrepresented by Auto Connection or the seller, or stipulated in the Bill of Sale.

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. After the sale (if reserve is met or not), Auto Connection must receive at least a 10% deposit (wire transfer or official bank or cashier’s check) within 3 days of the end of the auction (or the Bill of Sale is signed). The high bidder/buyer has 10 days from this time to send the balance in full or final payment and inspect the vehicle (or have a 3rd party professional inspection).

For the most part, the vehicle for sale is not “perfect”. It is unreasonable to assume that every single flaw in the paint, body, engine, etc. or any minor mechanical items (such as a light not working) be considered a reason to refuse the vehicle. Major rust/rot, undisclosed problems with the frame, etc. might constitute a legitimate reason for the buyer to refuse to follow through with the sale. In that situation, the seller and buyer will try to reach an agreeable solution.

The buyer acknowledges that he has had the opportunity to inspect the vehicle to verify it is as listed and represented. He accepts the vehicle with all advertised equipment, options and accessories in “AS IS” condition with any faults or defects. The buyer will bear all future costs of repairs or correcting any defects that exist or may occur in the future. The seller will have no responsibility or liability for any consequential damages or injury caused by any failure or malfunction of the vehicle or any components. This car is being offered for sale by owner. The buyer and seller acknowledge that if the transaction is consummated and a dispute occurs relating to the sale, the laws of Ohio (the state that the car is located/sold) govern the rights and duties under the agreement.
