Default Need Input, Good, Bad, or Indifferent.....

Thinking about making an offer on '82, owner wants 18K, at best, it's clean, runs decent, looks good, interior is excellent, clocked 32K.

As you can see, has one of the uglyest, hard to make pretty engine compartments of all time. Cross fire, yuk.........however, it does have a minor inherent oil leak, which I can live with, cheap replacement radio, will make offer of 13K.

Fire retardent suit is on..........

Pretty blue is pretty....












For real, it looks like a nice example. I agree, $13k/$13.5k is all the money. Where do you think the oil leak is from? Top end ok, rear main, not so much...
Good Luck and drive the crap outa it!

Owner has declined offer, which I had expected. Will continue my quest for a decent C3.

Thanks for the input.

I think the owner should be laughing all the way to the bank if he gets $13k for an average '82.

It should be near mint for that price.
