Additional Information

This car was imported to USA in 1978 by US Army officer who was stationed in France, where he bought the car new in December 1976.
His son owned the car since 1996. It had over original 211,000 Km ( 131,000 miles) when it was sold in July 2013.
The car had originally only SynLube™ Motor Oil installed, but in 1998 when the transmission had to be rebuilt due to corroded bearings owner also installed SynLube™ Lube-4-Life® MT Gear Oil after the overhaul.
In 1999 the entire cooling system had to be replaced (radiator, heater core, thermostat, heater valve and all hoses) due to corrosion and deterioration caused by conventional Prestone Coolant, that was religiously changed every spring. After his: "do not even ask how much that costed!" experience, the owner installed SynLube™ Cool-4-Life™ Synthetic Coolant as well.
In 2010 the car was severely damaged in accident and was finally sold "as-is" in July 2013 @ 211,378 odo kilometers.
