Can the members keep a look out for Reattas?  I am considering purchasing 2 cars soon, not necessarily both Reattas.  In searching CL, I am not finding much inventory. It appears the market is drying up fast, as we have discussed.   

 

I have to give out what my total piggybank is, I would rather not spend all of it.  Typically I am looking for those $1500 to $4500 cars, prefer 1988 early production any color but white, and 1990 Driftwood, Maui, most colors but white, 1991.  I could go coupe and convertible. 

 

if you spot one, let me know.

Thanks guys. I have purchased two and I am going to look at a 3rd tomorrow.  The 3rd one is a silver 1990 for only $1000. 

 

Black_Baby - I would love to own a Black and Tan Reatta.   It is one of my favorite combinations.  Not sure if your interior is grey or tan, but I am sorry we missed each other.

 

toostrong2p - nice car as well but at 164,000 miles $3500 is too much in my opinion.  Also, that's $200 more than you posted in your ad.

Went and looked at this Kansas City Reatta today.  It was always listed as SILVER but it is Driftwood.  I sat in the drivers seat and went "wait what"? it was tan leather.  It was in the garage so I could not tell it was Silver or Driftwood.  I then looked at the front end and said "this is Driftwood".  It has 165,000 miles, 2 owner car.

 

Lots of bad, lots of good.  Owner replaced Teves within the last 5000 miles.  Has good tires, good brakes (per owner).  Car would not start. Weak battery - needs battery. He has owned 15 years and never flushed the transmission or coolant.  As a former mechanic that's not good.  Car could puke a transmission in the next 20,000 miles. 

 

Interior - drivers seat is shot, drivers door panel needs attention, dent in passenger door that owner just cashed out, salvage title.  Needs new trunk lock (provided). Needs bell cranks - I think he bought them from Barney but not 100% sure,    No A/C - it's 99 degrees in KC right now.

 

I offered him $1000 and told him I would buy the battery.  There is a chance it's not the battery, right?   Could be the CPS.   He turned me down!  Said he had 2 guys coming on Saturday...   been on CL for 8 months.

I have a very nice white body grey interior. New gas tank all fluids serviced. Brakes flushed last month..interior great shape no rips or tears very little wear.

Custom exhaust sounds great. Convertible top could use a little tweaking for a better fit.. AC blows cold.

this is a nice car it does have 125000 miles but it has had great service thru the years when it needed it.

everything works, no brake lights are on, tires are like new, body has no dents or paint problems..

selling for $5900.00

I will send photos if interested

Thank you. I purchased a convertible about a week ago.  Can't have too many convertibles, or Reattas, in my opinion.  But for now I am OK.

Well I have considered it but think I am going to let someone else enjoy it.  If someone comes with $4000 they will drive it home LOL
