unusual Reatta

Recommended Posts

Last summer I purchased a blue '89 Reatta as a parts car but it was so nice it in now my daily driver.

What makes this car unusual is it has 384,000 miles on it but it looks like it has maybe 84,000 miles.

The 16 way seats are very nice

The door panels are very nice

The steering wheel is very nice.

Original floor mats in good condtion

covers on door strap pulls

Original headlight switch never apart and works good

ABS works

AC works

Shift light works

Front license plate holder like new

CRT works

2 original remotes that work and look nice

Rubber around windshield looks like new but the glass is sort of sandblasted so I know it is the original windshield

I did replace the cam sensor magnet with the JB weld method and that works good now.

The mileage is correct as the vin on the dash matches the vin  displayed on the CRT

What about the consumable parts? Control & body bushings, ball joints, brake hoses, rotors, pads, water pump, timing set, actuators, sensors, plugs, wires, ignition, etc.? Are they OEM or Aftermarket?

 

Some things must have been changed by now. For the mentioned systems to still be functioning properly (EL panels, mechanical switches, CRT) that is very strange at 384k!

Where did it spend its previous life? Must have been a pretty mild area and regular servicing.

29 years? 384k? CRT, EL panels, photo eye, stereo, headlight bellcranks & rollers- all OEM and working?

 

That's got to be a candidate for one of Barney's "info history" Database.
