This is the base model for this edition. Fitted with 4 doors with a 6-window – “post-less” front / rear side window design featuring a wrap-around rear window, and of-course the “Big-Fin” tail that arguably is an icon for auto opulance that become typical of this luxury brand.
This car is in very fine shape. Fitted with white-walls & original hub caps, factory radio, pwr. seats, pwr. assisted brakes & steering, interior side mirror adjusters & a very clean interior.
