1996 Z26, Philadelphia area, Auction ends June 9

Postby Ixion » Sun Jun 07, 2015 5:42 pm

I just happened to spot this on eBay and noticed it wasn't up here.
Appears to be a very well-maintained Medium Adriatic Blue Z26 3100/4T60e with 133,167 miles. Great interior, (description says Blue, but looks Gray?), with no tears from what I can tell and only the driver's seat padding compressed. Dash looks good, but the carpet needs shampooing, (possibly from cowl rain leak?), although I've seen much worse.
Currently 1 bid @ $999.00 with 2d 19h left

(I apologize for the way link was done. I'm not able to post actual links until I've been re-introduced to society, so to say.). :pardon: I'll edit it later, unless someone feels like re-posting it before the 9th. Cheers!

Listing says surface rust in the wheel well. BS, it's rusted out in the wheel well.
It's amazing what people try and call "minor surface" rust these days.
It's being sold by a wholesaler not the owner.

That's a bit harsh.
It's currently still sitting at $999. Even for $2000, the odds of finding a good-running 20-year-old car from the Northeast in better condition than this are slim.
In regards to the rot, yeah, it's there. Without more pics or a visual inspection, there's no way to know if it extends to the rockers. It's a Beretta, so it probably does. But this car may have been garage-kept, which contains it to a minimum -- much like my 96 Base was when I bought it, (although I wasn't graced with the luck of near-flawlessness that Jon had with Pinky).
And there's nothing wrong with buying from a wholesaler, but I do recommend looking the car over first-hand. I looked at a few Cobalts from wholesalers before deciding to buy the one I have. One was a pos, one was okay, and one was amazing. A year-and-a-half and I've been quite pleased with it.

I only posted here to share with other Beretta enthusiasts in the Philly/Southern NJ/Baltimore area. Someone might want to check it out to see if it's worth fixing/restoring or parting it out. Either way, it has lots of rare parts in good condition. Cheers!
