FS – Very nice 1990 Red coupe with 73,500miles

Unfortunately, I need to sell my Reatta; I bought it as a toy to play with in my retirement. I find at 71 years old my health does not let me enjoy driving, polishing and tinkering with it. I’ve owned it about a year and a month and have only put about 3,000 miles on it. It now has a bit less then 73,500 miles on the odometer. As far as I can tell it is exactly as it was when the original owner drove it out of the showroom less normal wear and tear. I have about $4,100.00 invested and would like to recoup it.

Many photos are linked to on my 4th post!

In my next three posts:

--- Completed “Sellers Form”

--- Text version of an "Autocheck Report" showing a complete history of the car:

--- A link to an amateurish Youtube video showing windows and also a link to an online album having many high-resolution photos of the car.

The first link below will take you to a `Youtube’ video where you can see the windows, headlamps, antenna, and sunroof in operation. Also, the video shows me risking my life as my wife drives past me:

The next link is to a photo site where I’ve posted 35 high-resolution photos of the Reatta.

Dave-

I doubt that the car has been driven in the winter and has probably spent most of its life in the garage. There's no rust That I am aware of.

Tommorrow I will carefully examine areas below the belt line, particularily fender wells and the the bottom of the doors and sills. I'll let you know what I find.

If you are aware of areas prone to rusting, please get back to me and I'll check those areas. Would you like photos of specific areas? Let me know.

Thanks - Steve
