:shock: :shock: very nice ke :tu: what are your plans? if i had a gem like that, i don't think i could do anything to it.

these didn't come w/center consols in the US either. i don't think they came with it at all.
we use the TE/AE71 lift back center consols.

WOW !
Did you detail it for the photo shoot, or are the photos of it when you got it? Looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor.
And looking at the backseat, I'd guess no grandkids were hauled around with dripping ice cream cones or Slushies!
You have a very interesting site as well - have to some more exploring later!

Well mine belonged too an old guy that passed away so his 90-something year old wife had the car towed to the local scrap yard where I saved it!!
Mine was 54000 one owner but wasnt quite as clean as that........... but not far off!! :mrgreen:

To be honest if it was that clean Ide be hard pushed to modify it at all and risk ruining a propper classic, but How mine looks now and with the plans i have for it I love it!! lol
