    @canyonclassics Great thank you for the additional meter info and pics.

  • canyonclassics (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @Shiver11 I just metered the car and the complete front end paint and cowl is all original and meters within range. The passenger rear quarter and deck lid are also original which rules out any front or rear accident damage. Both doors have been painted and they blended into driver rear quarter when doing repair. I did not get any meter readings higher than 7.0 around the car (3.9 to 5.0 is factory paint) which to me indicates no major body work, most likely just repairing parking lot damage or someone swinging the doors into things at a few times in the past. I have sent a bunch of photos to Pcar for upload.

    @canyonclassics Any known paint work or service records identifying a respect? From several pictures it looks like there is a noticeable tone/color difference between the front fenders and doors which would indicate a nose job at some point.

    @Jhacking33 will take those tomorrow and send over for update. Top is 10-10 FLAWLESS brand new with perfect clear rear window. Underside is perfect, no leaks, no rust as nice as you would expect a CA and AZ car to be. Bid With Confidence!

    Beautiful car and I agree on the color combo; I had the same on an ‘09 Turbo. Do you have any photos with the top up and also of the undercarriage? Thanks!

    @BlueTTop yes it's a fantastic color combo. I don't think there is any color combo more classic and luxurious.

  • BlueTTop 1 month, 4 weeksago

    Thanks for the quick response! The color matched wheels look great.

  • canyonclassics (seller) 1 month, 4 weeksago

    @BlueTTop it appears you are correct. Code 348 would indicate they were white from factory. I don't see that notated. They were done at a factory quality standard because they don't show a harsh tape line or paint irregularities.

  • BlueTTop 1 month, 4 weeksago

    Were the wheels painted at the factory? The option code sticker does not reflect so.
