The key word here is “documented” Finding a documented W30 4spd car with its original drive train is harder than finding a needle in a haystack. I have searched for years for these cars and have had a very hard time of it.
Not to mention how hard it is to find an unrestored 4spd car in the best color, numbers matching still wearing its original paint and every option is documented by the super rare factory buildsheets.
This car is numbers matching from the carb to pan and nose to tail. It is guaranteed to have no issues with authenticity what so ever.
This car has been garaged its whole life, it has some chips from normal wear. There is a dent in the rear bumper center as shown in pics. The chrome on the bumpers shows its age with some slight peeling. The car has had one owner for 35 years who meticulously maintained and cared for it.
The interior is 100% original and looks fantastic. The original carpet has a worn spot under the drivers floor mat which is not visible. The trunk floor is like new with the original orange paint and no rust. Original trunk mat, Jack and spare rim. The original Mat has dried foam flaking off the bottom and some is stuck to the trunk floor.
The floors and frame are very clean and rust free just like the doors,fenders, quarters etc.
