I emailed the owner to see about few non factory things on the car.

- It has the Euro headlight washers, however the washer bottle is the
standard small unit with provision for one small pump only.. not what cars
with headligth washers come with, they require high pressure pump in
addition to the regular windshield unit... so I question if the system
even works.

- Wheels have been redone, not my cup of tea BTW.

- It does not have pin stripes, so they have either been removed, or it's
been repainted....

Since he claims to be the original owner he would be the only person able
to answer those questions.

Otherwise looks very good.  Not as good as some others I have seen for
sale but certailnly worth probably above $10k.
