alignent front end

Tires are new
Brakes are all good, just adjusted and set parking brakes

excellend shape,
seats are great
carpets are good, even has factory mats
dash has one crack(typical)
wood in good shape

windows and sunroof work great
heater works good
added drive side heated seat
radio and speakers work(but cannot see display)

no rust
still has factoy under coating on bottom
new paint
trim is great
lenses are great

A few other thoughts
the a/c does not work it is complete, but probably needs an expansion value and low/high pressure switch
vacuume locks work sometimes, but can be locked with key
if you do not like the black headlight surrounds, i can put the original ones on

I would not be selling this car as I built to drive back and forth to work, about 50 miles a day, but i bought a 300sdl. I have averaged 27-30 MPG and that is all surface roads, have seen better with all highway driving

please call/txt to see 314-two29-2143

I can email pics as i was having trouble getting them to upload
