1979 Town Coupe,Triple Turquoise, Leather, 31K mi, Excellent

Postby Perry Bush » Tue Sep 07, 2021 9:32 pm

Here is a needs-nothing car with 31K miles accumulated so far and increasing regularly. It is a genuine pleasure to drive with no mechanical, functional concerns whatsoever. Every single switch, light, accessory, power options, heat and AC (still R12), clock (keeps accurate time), cruise control, radio, intermittent wipers, etc….everything working like new. Additional options include power windows with mini-vents, 50/50 lounge comfort seats (6-way adjustments working on both sides), power locks, Illuminated Entry, Turbine aluminum wheels, visors with lighted mirrors, premium body side moldings, Coach Roof vinyl top, and the absolutely beautiful added-cost, one-year-only Medium Turquoise Moondust Metallic paint, also called Medium Beryl in some sources, with matching leather interior.

Changes from stock original condition include the paint which is approximately 25 years old and is the correct code matching color. A high quality job was done with trim removed and no overspray visible anywhere. It shows extremely well today with few small flaws, most significant being a very slight color mismatch on the driver’s door between the pin stripe and molding. The middle section has been repainted to repair a large scratch. It's hard to see in person or in pictures, see close-ups of the door, front and rear, which represent the view in person well. Note that most exterior pictures tend to show the paint color as more of a blue, but it is definitely Turquoise, more like the interior, and shown more accurately in interior shots. The original radio has been replaced with a vintage Motorola AM/FM-CB combination which works fine and is an interesting find. The original radio was the top-of-the-line digital Quadrasonic AM/FM/8 track. I have one of these radios available in excellent working condition which is rare, valuable, available if the buyer prefers to return to original.

The engine bay is nearly 100% original, very clean and tidy but not restored, perfect for a regularly enjoyed car. The undercarriage, doors, body are all protected with undercoating and other rust proofing that has not deteriorated at all and still looks great. The exhaust system is completely original and is perfectly quiet. Many paper code tags and part number labels remain intact, lost a couple when cleaning up the undercarriage a bit.

Cosmetic flaws outside include a slightly discolored vinyl top. A bit of a difference can be detected between the sides and the top, but not obvious at all. It is in perfect condition, zero tears, scratches, scuffs, and completely solid at the rear lower corners, no rust hiding there either. Paint, bumpers, anodized trim, moldings, rocker covers, light bezels, all glass, lenses…all excellent. Very few flaws in the chrome, door handles and passenger side mirror have a small amount of pitting.

The interior is amazing. The driver’s seat is in near the same condition as the passenger and rear seats, which is truly superb. There are very few signs of wear of any kind anywhere at all and zero damage. Woodgrain panels, entire carpet, vinyl trim, headliner, door panels, chrome accents, dash, steering wheel, all in beautiful condition. The entire trunk compartment is also exceptional, literally looks like it has never been used.

Thanks, Wayne! It really is, I've added 1000 miles this summer with zero concerns. Really enjoyed it.
