Thats as bad as the 91 auto that just ended with "17k" original miles but the engine bay looks like 100k+ with no mileage reported on the history check. It bid up over $6k and the reserve was not met.It's evidently a "time-space warp" machine as well. The seller says it has "only" 62k miles on it, but the Autocheck shows 197k in 2002. From the looks of the engine compartment, it looks more like 597k miles. I wonder if the smell of cheap perfume in the back seat goes with the car.
The non-standard bits stand out against what might have been a nice car... I wonder why I've never thought of tinting my headlights to make them dimmer... but that interior is what really does it for me. It seems to be having an identity crisis! On the one hand it wants to be a luxury saloon (beige leather), but it also wants to be a hot hatch (just look at that gearlever!) and the instruments are very Burger King 50's Americana (Hungry Jack's for the Australians)... stands as an excellent example of how not to respect late-80s European restraint... thanks for the link!Did the factory make them like that? It is very unusual and a bit strange with the red bits and extra grilles. It is a bit like the yellow 166S that is for sale here in Australia at the moment which looks like it would be a case of developing an acquired taste because it is yellow all over with cream and black interior and white faced instruments. That is also a rare factory model apparently. It is not a manual though.
