Re: 87 5ktq for sale or trade

Some additional details for those who want to know.
The car is a 5000CSTQ. 5 speed, climate control (cold ac), and all of the 
other goodies that came with this top of the line model. The exterior is a 
dark burgandy(not sure of the official color name)that is in very good 
condition, no rust or dents; the hood, front fender and drivers door were 
repainted after a minor accident several years ago. The clear coat has some 
'tree sap'(white spots)damage on the roof and trunk but the finish is 
otherwise very shiny. The interior is black leather in excellent condition 
(slight wear on drivers seat but no rips or tears). The wheels are the 
original 15" alloys that are in excellent condition with good tires. My son 
replaced the original radio with a Pioneer CD receiver and has replaced some 
of the speakers. The following are the problems that I know about: left rear 
power window switch doesn't work (all windows work from driver's door), 
headlight switch will not stay on low beam unless it is held (broken 
spring?), abs not working properly (I have not tried to fix, we just switch 
the abs off), some noise from rear diferential or wheel bearing.  We 
purchased the car with a terrible drive shaft vibration that was fixed by 
replacing the center bearing and front driveshaft cv joint (from Blau). We 
have also replaced the clutch master cylinder (pedal would not always return 
all the way), and we recently repacked the front cv joints and replaced the 
outer boots (also swapped the axles from side to side to extend the life 
while they were out). I do not have any of the prior service records for the
