Car description

Hi folks,
Up for grabs is a beautiful Euro Spec 560 SEC, fully federalized and CARB certified.
VIN# WDB1260451A513292. MFG 10/1989
The previous owner was in the Air Force and imported this from Japan in the mid 2000s. I bought it with a clean CA title several years ago and I have a clear Texas title in my name, which is all you will need to get to registered. It is CARB certified, so California admission should be a breeze. It is a great example of a well maintained car.
The 5.6L V8 with the euro 117.968 engine and 10:1 compression engine believed to be the 300 HP version. It drives great and has amazing pickup for a car of its vintage. Transmission shifts smoothly. Truly an autobahn cruiser that travels effortlessly at 80 MPH

- Front and rear brakes done with pads and resurfaced rotors.

- New front Bilsteins; the rear SLS is in good shape with no sagging.
- AC works great.
- No leaks.
- Suspension in good shape.
- Timing chains were inspected and deemed to be in good shape. No chain clatter.
Finished in Beautiful 587 Pajett Red Metallic (Pajettrot, Cabernet Red), the car is a visual stunner. Paint is mostly original.

Gray leather seating surfaces is original and in very good shape for age. No cracks or tears.
- Seat belt retractors work.

- Dials are bright orange, along with the needles.
- The wood has been recently redone with a nice luster without any cracks in the veneer.

- 1 tiny tear in the driver's seat bottom of 2 mm.
- Aftermarket alpine radio; don't have the original Becker.
In summary, this is a great example of an appreciating classic in a desirable Euro configuration with a high performance engine. This will continue to rise in value, as low mileage unmolested examples are getting harder to find. This, being a Euro model, is even more valuable.
