- First owner can be contacted for additional details. I chose to not take any records from him even though he offered. Nice gentleman and did the sale on trust.
Why didn't you take all the maintenance records?
Maintenance records belong with the car, not a former owner.
They add value to a car and help you sell it when the time comes.
If they are still being offered, you should get them, or at least make copies to stay with a car. How long can it take to make copies, 10 minutes?
You should make every effort to get the records from the original owner and put together a binder of the complete maintenance history.
The pictures look nice, I hope the car finds a good home, at that price it probably will...
Find someone who will garage it always, will never drive it on salty roads, and not need to rack up thousands of miles a year on it.
(Two of my fleet are orginal California cars, always garaged, never been driven on salty roads, don't have a single spot of rust anywhere, and stored during the winter. That's the kind of care your car should get)
If I had the room and extra money, I'd probably make an offer if the car is as described.
