    Just picked this one up today from the original owner. Seen much worse cars but pretty cool find with buckets, console & tilt. Seems to be all there including title & two sets of keys.
    Tilt wheel seems a little odd with manual windows/locks?

    Truly, I wasn't even looking. It was my neighbor's Aunt's car. He mentioned she had it & I said: let's go check it out. I wanted it for the buckets & console but it is too complete to just take it apart for me. Not sure what works & what doesn't.
    I'm not into the car really but when I heard they had to get it off the property, I wanted it. Another guy offered to take it to the scrapyard for her &give her half. I paid more than scrap for sure. Everyone was happy.
    I think my goal is to find it a new home.

    Could you post a photo of the lens at the back of the console, for me? Like, it's what the rear passenger would see, sort of like a courtesy light lens. I need one and I have never seen an image of one.... Thank you!

    Also, I know a Swedish owner who is double-desperate for the full rear light bezels and lenses. He's not a member here, but you may well get the cost of the car back for the lenses and bezels alone...
