That front seat looks pretty flat for a little over one oil change worth of milage...

And what the hell is that knob on the trunklid? CB antenna mount?

i noticed the same thing about the front seat. maybe the sneaky son (per auction listing) was a fat-ass. although, deep down, i can't say that i blame him for sneaking a drive now and then. who could resist that??

this car would raise a dilema for me. IF the mileage is accurate (and it appears so) it makes it a truely rare car indeed , i'd almost be compelled to put it on a pedestal and not drive it, ever. course, that is the worst thing for all the rubber seals and not in keeping with the joy of these cars.

oh well, unless i win the lottery, that won't be my decision to make. sigh...

Yeah they certainly got that aftermarket stereo and antenna on quickly. I want some shots of the underside - that would say alot!!

I think it's some sort of radio antenna.

Also, note the speedo - it's leaning slightly to the left (the cross hairs do line up with the two gauges either side).

until it's sat on. Same thing happened to my rear seat, the horsehair turned to dust with pressure.

My speedo doesn't line up either. I've tried to adjust it a little, but nothing. I've never thought to look at another 02, I've just learned to live with it.

A trap mirrowr on a '74? Hmmmmm. I thought they were all flags. Not an early VIN either.

The seller doesn't mention the A/C. It was dealer installed. I like the car! Add some silver 3 piece 15" BBS and enjoy.

Im thinking that the stereo and CB were probably dealer-installed options (though that wiring in the trunk looks like ass) That Blaupunkt and those rear speaker grilles sure are period-correct.

Some dealer documentation, along with underside shots, could clear all this up in a hurry.

Though is has been olften debated on this forum, trap mirror is correct for a '74.

My new '74 #4225509 came with one.

That Blaupunkt radio, power antenna and speakers may be "vintage-correct."

In the mid 70s when the US dollar was sinking and the prices of Germna Radios were sky-high, some Blaupunkts like the Combo II AM/FM/Stereo Cassette were made in Japan.

I can't tell from the pics, but that looks like the real thing. I have one in my tii.

BTW, the thin plastic covering the back seat is "factory issue." It's left over from assembly at the factory. Some new owners kept it on to protect the seat vinyl. I left the plastic on my new '74 for about a year before it got tattered enough to remove.

"flag" mirrors were used only on 75s and 76s from the factory (as well as early 320's), but are commonly installed on earlier cars as they provide much better rear visibility...
