  1. One of the 5 recently imported JDM 1991 Nissan Figaro's is almost finished it's restoration and is being advertised for sale. I bought out a Japanese car dealer and these 5 cars were in the inventory. Each one is being restored to original. All the bodies were rust and damage free to start and each has had a complete strip down to bare metal and repainted with base coat / clear coat in the original colors. Every car has new tires, new brakes, complete mechanical service including timing belts, batteries, tune ups, and anything needing attention was replaced. New convertible tops and headliners were installed along with a complete interior restoration . Hubcaps have been restored, all chrome has been polished and is in great shape. Everything works like the day it was made. Each car has a 1 liter turbocharged engine, air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power windows, and every aspect of the car has been gone through and is working and looks like new. This green car has 122 K kilometers showing and comes complete with the Japanese title / Japanese export certificate, all fully paid US import and US Customs taxes, fully paid DOT inspection, fully paid EPA inspection, all charges paid relating to legal import and the car is ready to be titled in any State except CA which is an entire planet unto itself. Car trunk is also rust free and it comes with it's original spare tire, tool kit and jack. Everything works like the day it was made. Car runs and drives great with ice cold a/c. No weird noises, drips or leaks. Just a fun little conversation starter car. Be the only one at your car show. 50's charm with newer car functionality. Like all of them it has a/c, automatic transmission, ps, pb, pw, p/antenna, cd player, manual top, automatic boot release. Rust free, no body damage, new paint, just a perfectly fun little car. If you have questions or want to see or drive the car, it is in Naples Florida $ 23500 or best offer Like any used car, as this is a 28 year old used car , even though it has been restored, it is sold as is , where is with no warranties. More photos will be added later this week, it started raining and I had to stop taking pics.

  3. What happened to it ? You would have to ask the now deceased original owners. Apparently they took it to a shop for a leaking rad and that is how it came back. If you buy the car, you can change the rad.
  4. A very nice original and RARE, 1969 Buick Sportwagon 400 ( glass roof model, not a flat roof ) with the powerful 400 ci. v8 ( just like the Buick GS muscle cars ) and a 4 bbl carb. This car is powerful, fast and fun. Showing slightly over 46,000 miles, although I do drive it on nice weekends here in Florida so the original mileage will go up slightly each week. Automatic transmission, ice cold air conditioning, power seats, speed minder cruise system, tilt steering column, clock ( does not work ), remote drivers mirror ( does not work automatically but does manually ) , power rear window and split tailgate opening feature ( opens down flat or swings out ), rear seat sun visors, Buick chrome mag wheels, power steering, power brakes, posi-traction rear end. Recently installed tires, brakes and all fluids flushed and re-filled, car has been tuned up and runs great. RUST FREE, original paint polished and buffed to a nice shine. Everything works as of today ( unless noted above that it doesn't ) This is not a restored show car but an original 50 year old well kept original car which has had maintenance and safety items change, which means it looks fabulous but you will see some imperfections if you look closely as you would on any original 50 year old car . I personally prefer a well kept original to an overly or improperly restored car, or a car that is restored and you can't drive it. I wouldn't hesitate driving it anywhere. I have taken it to car shows and drives all across Florida and it has performed flawlessly. Clear Florida title in my name. As this is a 50 year old used car, it is sold as is / where is, with no warranties. Absolutely nothing wanted in trade. $ 29,995. US or CDN ( Cdn. $ taken at par ) or best reasonable offer. No trades wanted. We have more cars than we know what to do with as it is.

  6. This Figaro is almost ready for those that are interested. Original Topaz Mist color ( rarest of all the 4 original colors ), 4 new Yokohama tires, , new brakes front and rear ( master cylinder, wheel cylinders, shoes, pads and hoses ) tuned up with new plugs and wires and rotor and cap, all fluids flushed and refilled including the transmission, everything on the car works including the ice cold A/C, new radiator and hoses also just installed, . Timing belt was redone recently in Japan according to sticker on engine before I imported the car to the US. The front and rear bumpers and trim which usually rust away to nothing on these cars are solid and shiny. It even has the optional headlight chrome brows. It runs and drives great; is quiet, does not drip, leak, smoke or make any weird noises. Currently the car is at the auto upholstery shop and it will be getting a brand new convertible top and headliner within the next 2 weeks, as well as having the entire interior ( carpets, dash pad and dash, door panels, seats, trim etc ) restored. The rare original wheel covers were also restored. Only 116000 KM ( 69000 miles) . Automatic transmission, turbo, power steering, power brakes, power windows, remote fuel release, power antenna ( keep in mind the Japanese stereo's do not work in the US because they are not set to pick up North American frequencies, however the CD player does work ) Email if you have questions. The asking price is $11,995 or best offer. Car is in Naples Florida if you want to see it or drive it. All the required paperwork to register the car ( every State has different rules so please see what your State requires ) is included. All the Japanese export documents including the title, shipping manifest, the US Customs and US Duties and US Port charges have all been paid, and the EPA and DOT forms have all been paid for and filed on the car. Completely legal to now register it in your area. This is a legal import not a Grey Market import. The car is priced below similar mileage cars from Duncan Imports and this car includes all the newly replaced items above including the top and interior, which Duncan's cars do not have. The paint and body is driver quality which means it looks nice from a few feet away but up close you may see some minor imperfections from age/ use. As it is a 27 year old used car, it is sold as is / where is with no warranties.

  8. There is too much to scan and attach here. Anyone can find the same information if they look in the 1969 Buick Color and Trim binder as well as the 1969 Buick Salesman's Guide etc.
  9. Price is $ 40.00 for each item, including shipping. These are very rare, NOS 1969 AMC interior or exterior color standard plates and finish standard plates ( see photos for details as to whether they are for interior paint or plastic or exterior finishes ) . These were made by AMC and given to the major paint and materials manufacturers to control color quality of the exterior paint colors and interior plastic trim colors, as well as used on the assembly line to guarantee consistency for quality control. The only items left are shown in the photos -- everything else we had is sold so if you don't see it, we don't have it.
  10. After looking at factory literature, factory photos and the 69 Buick Color and Trim book, it seems the Sportwagon 400 came with the trim whether you deleted the fake wood decal or not and the lesser cars did not.
  11. Price reduced -- and,,,, photos reflect the only items remaining
