Seller Description

Not a collector car, it's an excellent driver. I found the car when it had been neglected (apparently not abused) for some time with 43,000 mi. I brought it home and found it needed attention, but most of what it needed was cleaning up, and repair a few "fiddly bits". The drive train is rock solid, no shakes, shimmies, brakes are excellent. Top is in very good shape, operates as it should.
Changed Trans, Diff fluids, flushed brake/clutch
New Bilsteins in the rear
Refinished wheels
New tires, Alignment
Glovebox fix
New flex disc
Repaired seat belt guides
Replaced seat rail bushings
Replaced serpentine belts
Cleared water drain channels
Replaced driver side window channel guides
Repaired and had painted the front bumper cover, installed new lower grill
New door handle gaskets
New outer tie rod ends, alignment
Replaced headlight adjusters, polished lens
Changed air filter, Oil and filter every 5000 miles
Clutch pedal bushing was worn, replaced clutch pedal with a mod, but can't remember the name.
Have 4 oil filters, various new and old parts to include
Previous owner (a lady) apparently bought the car after it received the salvage title and repair, drove it 10,000 mi over ten years. I have driven it 10,000 miles in the two years I've had it to include road trips to Sav and New Hampshire. No issues, wonderful roadster. I'm selling because I recently fell into a Porshe and don't need or have shop room for it, and it deserves an enthusiast owner. Come see it, will put it on the lift and show you everything I know about it.

It definitely seems like a well-sorted driver. It has lots of good maintenance/repairs. The price is ok with the lower mileage.
