    Judging a car like this with photos that appear to be taken with a flip phone is tough.

    Description seems to be honestly written. A PPI seems like it would be inorder on this one.

    I think there is a lot to like with this one. Work to do, but this is stated clearly in the description. A good model/year if restored well - great proper restoration candidate, I think (making assumptions on the overall metal condition). GLWS

    Ya, that's my turd.

    I bought it back in October, but it clearly needed more work than I had hoped, and thus, unloading it. I already have too many other projects and this one will require nothing but a full resto, otherwise it's not worth it.

    Let me know if you have any questions and no, I'm not taking the rocker covers off as it's already a given it'll need rocker work. But I'm flexible on the price.

    Definitely a rare bird and hope it goes to someone who'll take it down, all the way down, and get done right.

    "Seems to be honestly written"???? I can't remember reading a more honest, cold eyed description by the owner. If you speak that rare dialect, "e9coupe" and you are looking for a coupe and know what you are looking for and at, just reach for your checkbook. Pictures from a Kodak Brownie would suffice for me.

    No worries. I know, the pics came out TOO BIG when hosting from IMGUR, so I just posted to the Imgur Album; much easier to see there.

    I really wish I can keep her, but counting my wife's car, 8 vehicles is too much, and I'm keeping my 2800CS to "hot rod."

    Alan, I am not following you on the headliner pattern, the all look more of less the same, square indent / perforations with raised lines at 90 degrees to each other

    i thought i saw a pic of the inside headliner there
    no i cant find it
    anyway the front w/ the visers is the diamond insets
    but the rear main headliner nas no diamonds
    just the lines pattern
    many were done that way

    I think the headliner is perforated as well. It is a different material, and does not register the same in the photography? It looks exactly like the combination in my '73.

    INteresting. Never noticed that until now.

    I'll have to check my 2800's Visor panel (sunroof headliner missing on that car).

    I have asked about headliners before on the forum...
    In Rob's car for sale, the main headliner and sunroof look the same
    Some what hard to tell in some of the photos
    The visor panel looks slightly different but very similar
    The visor panel vinyl is a different type, I have peeled a bit of the back of mine
    The main headliner is thin and light, the visor panel is heaver, sort of rubbery
