Description

Lot #619 - These cars were only imported through the 1979 model year, this example was one of the last imported. It was built in January of 1980 and kept not sold by the owner of the dealership. The story goes, that he stored the car on the roof of the parts department and after several years sold the dealership and left the car there. It was discovered while the new owners of the dealership were cleaning. With only 19 miles on the odometer, the car originally sold in 1988 as a new car with only 20 miles on it and since then it has only been driven very rarely and has been stored in a climate controlled facility. With only 1,588 miles, this car is absolutely new! Because of proper storage, there is no deterioration what so ever.
