I've lowered the price again. To do this, the car can be had without the wheels and tires shown. Replace these with standard 14 inch steel wheels painted black, original dog dish hub caps, and 205/70 Bridgestone radial tires. NEW PRICE: $5500 or offer. Winter is coming and I am getting very motivated to sell.
