1900 red/tan reatta by original owner

Guest FelixK

Recommended Posts

After 20 years of ownership and just over 143,000 great miles I am selling my Reatta. I need to have two more seats for an aging father and grandchildren. I am the orginal owner and have enjoyed the vehicle very much. It still gets compliments. I used the suggested form to describe the car as best I could, and attached several photos. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Car looks great in the pictures. If the car is still available can you describe the condition of the undercarriage in particular the condition of the fuel and brake lines? Thank you

Car is still available. The brake and fuel lines are original. They appear to be in good condition. Fuel filter has been changed several times over the years. The car was garge kept for over 17 years. I can send you two under body photos if you provide an email address.

has the computer recognized the a/c conversion? often it is recommended not to convert for this reason. regards to the brake leak, how serious and costly is this? what are the small annoying issues? :)

The AC worked fine for two years after the conversion. I have never had the brake leak estimated for repair. It has not been that big an issue to add fluid occaisonally.
