  1. The car is parked out behind a friend's business under a carport -- Peppy's Auto Trim 5534 Yahl St Naples, 34109 You can see it anytime but they have the keys so if you want to hear it running you have to go during business hours
  2. We are reducing our car collection to a more manageable number due to space issues and have decided to part with a few of our original cars that we do not drive often. This is a 1980 Ford Thunderbird with low mileage and no rust from the South --- truly a time capsule. Odometer shows around 16,500 miles and I have no reason to believe it is not original , As we take the car out on short drives and to keep everything lubricated and moving every month the mileage does change slightly. No body damage or rust that we can see. Interior is original and in very nice condition with only some aging on some hard plastic parts from sun fading. It shows very well -- everything works. The car drives great with no weird noises, no smoking, no dripping and no problems at all. All the maintenance items have been done as well as all the safety items ( brakes, tires, fuel lines ) so we could drive it when we wanted with out issues. Starts right up,,, warms up quickly, idles smoothly, has lots of power and is actually a fun car to drive. V8 car, auto transmission, ps, pb, manual windows and door locks and seats. As it is an original and unrestored car, there may be some blemishes that you would find with any 40 year old car such as age or deterioration wear on rubber, metal or glass or paint but you will be hard pressed to find anything wrong and astonished that this is a 40 year old used car. We want nothing in trade - we have 30 cars and are trying to reduce what we have. As this is a 40 year old used car, it is sold as is, where is, with no warranties. Clear Florida title in my name $ 9,995.00 or best reasonable offer
  3. We are selling off our last 1991 Nissan Figaro that we imported into the USA a few years ago when it was legal to do so. This car has a clear Florida title in my name. We originally imported one in every color for our collection, and that led to an additional two cars for us to drive around town, but with all of our cars in our collection, having so many of the same thing ( just different colors ) was silly so we have sold them all of except my wife's car which she is not selling and this last yellow car which I drove. Only 20,000 Nissan Figaro's were made in 1991 ( one year only model run ) and the Figaro Club estimates less than half remain world wide. The are all the same except for exterior color ( 4 original colors representing the seasons , tan, grey, green and aqua ) - this car was originally tan but to fit in with Florida, we painted it yellow. You can see from the last photo it was a rust free car to start with. All cars where two tone with white on the top, all cars have a 1 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder engine, automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering, power windows, power antenna, manual convertible top , power trunk release and air conditioner. This car has had the following done to it since we imported it a few years back - -it been stripped and repainted ( no body damage or rust just because I didn't like the original color ). - it has had the interior restored ( new carpets, recovered front and rear seats , resprayed interior door panels and dash ) - it has a new convertible top - it has had all new brake work front and back as well as new tires - it has had the timing belt replaced, completely tuned up with all new plugs, wires, etc. and all fluids flushed and filled. - a/c has been recharged. - battery has been changed As of today everything is working great including the air conditioner. As it is a 30 year old car however it is sold as is, where is with no warranties. NOTHING is wanted in trade. We have over 30 cars as it is. Car can be seen in Naples FL if you are interested - just email for details, questions or more pics.

  5. The green one is sold We have one last Figaro for sale - photos below, that was going to be advertised here this weekend 112,000 km, new top , new interior , new paint over a rust free car ,Florida title $ 12,500 obo
  6. It is in FACT the original color and it is called ' Chartreuse ' -- go look on any Datsun color chart for 1978. Too bad the arm chair ' experts' are rarely right
  7. We are reducing our car collection to a more manageable number due to storage space issues and have decided to part with a few of our original cars that we do not drive often. This is a 1978 Datsun 510 station wagon with low mileage and no rust from the South --- truly a time capsule. Odometer shows 13,500 miles ( since we take it on short trips every month the mileage does change ) Fabulous shiny paint ( ' Chartreuse " which Datsun offered in 1978 and 1979 ) with no body damage or rust. Interior is original with only one area of vinyl repair on the driver's seat. It shows very well -- everything works. The car drives great with no weird noises, no smoking, no dripping and no problems at all. All the maintenance items have been done as well as all safety items ( brakes, tires, fuel lines ) so we could drive it when we wanted with out issues. Starts right up,,, warms up quickly, idles smoothly, has lots of power and is actually a fun car to drive. As it is an original and unrestored car, so there may be some blemishes that you would find with any 42 year old car such as age or deterioration wear on rubber, metal or glass but you will be hard pressed to find anything wrong and astonished that this is a 42 year old used car. We want nothing in trade - we have enough cars and are trying to whittle down what we have. As this is a 42 year old used car, it is sold as is, where is, with no warranties. Clear Florida title in my name
  8. I may consider something in trade so let me know what you have and we can see about working something out.
  9. We are selling one of our 1991 Nissan Figaro's. We have two and decided to only keep one. We are trying to free up space and have almost 30 cars so the duplicates are on their way out. The car was legally imported years ago by me and has a clear Florida title in my name. Everything on the car works No rust, no body damage. 1 liter turbo motor runs great with no smoking, dripping or leaking. This is a lovely RUST FREE solid nice driver with approximately 58,000 miles ( 98,000 km ), RHD, auto transmission, power windows, power brakes, power steering, convertible top( manual ) and everything works including the ice cold Air Conditioning which is important here in South West Florida. Original 30 year old paint and chrome which have cleaned up nicely and show well but are not 100% show quality perfect. Most people would never notice. We have gone over the car mechanically and it is all recently serviced including a new timing belt/water pump, tune up , 4 new tires, complete new brakes front and back. We have also in the past year restored the interior and convertible top which included a new top and back window panels, new carpet, new headliner, recovered front and rear seats, re-sprayed door panels and dash. It is a fun car with the vintage looks and charm and ' modern' conveniences. Becoming very collectible in the USA. They only made 20,000 for one year in 1991 and according to estimates in Japan and the UK where they were sold, roughly half have been scrapped already which means only 10,000 world wide and declining. Jay Leno and a host of other car people own one and you can too. It is in Naples Florida if you want to see or drive it.. Email if you want more pics. Nothing wanted in trade ( we have enough cars ). $ 19995.00 or best offer.
  10. It is something that someone made using Crosley parts but it isn't a Crosley per se
  11. 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.
