Nice! Not a big fan of Yellow on a 928 but otherwise it's in great shape. Somewhat rare sun roof delete, 5-speed and none power seats. Kind'a like mine.

Also I've always liked the later model Wing on the early Sharks. Needs the chin spoiler.

It'll be intresting to see what it goes for.

Looks good in pics, but pretty sure it's a respray, so you never know until you get REAL close to it. I've been thinking about picking up one of the OB's too. Need to get rid of the wife first though. But 6k is too steep for my budget right now.

First OB with a late-model wing I've seen that I like the look of. I wonder what the reserve is if "buy it now is 11k".

Also, if the mileage is real (which I would immediately question, especially if it's a respray), it's just about due for a new timing belt $$$$$.

Wing f***'s it up. Poor respray as you can see yellow paint on light bezels and rocker panel trim for starters...probably an Earl Schieb special. Poor VINYL re-upholstry, though they call it FULL LEATHER. New owner will have a bit of a surprise when they see it in person and figure out this car is not what they thought it was or would be. No real description of the car or it's history.

BUYER BEWARE!!!

Definitely a respray: "
This little stud is finished in a gorgeous and recently refinished Bright Yellow..."

Also, underside looks like it's been sitting outside for awhile and notice one of the center-caps is not painted, while it looks like the other three are.

The color looks good on an OB...not a fan of the spoiler though.

Interior will need some work. Driver's seat appears to be over stuffed and not installed properly.
Most of it though, only looks to be loose and treated by an over zealous fan of Armor All.
Door panel for example, looks bad, but one could easily tighten everything up and make it nice for $0

And for those who didn't notice, the steering wheel you are looking at is in fact the rubber core. They simply removed the used leather cover and left the wheel bare.

Check the underside of the hood in the engine pics. Look at the rear fog light trim. Look at the picture of the right door sill and note the overspray on the trim piece in the lower left of the picture

I think this was a real cheap respray... beware!

That overspray on the euro rear fog light gasket will surely score extra points at the concours.
Who the hell reccomended this dog anyway?
