Also considering a 86 420SEL- is it worth it?

Thanks. I checked on the 92 Acura today- and either the miles are wrong- or it has seen an abusive 127K. I am going to pass on that car.

I am very interested in a nice 1986 420SEL for $4000, but I think that is a little steep for this particular car. It has 147K. Seller claims it has been well maintained (I have asked for records, but have not got a response yet) and the timing chain has been replaced and it has just had a valve job, as well as some other service and a new muffler. Body and interior are in VGC. One power window is inoperable. I may offer $3500 and see what happens. They say it was advertised in a local paper for $4500 and then said they would take $4000. The 86 560SEL here locally for $3900 w/127K may be a better deal, but I think it was sold. I cannot find it advertised now and I cannot recall the name of the car lot.

Thanks again.
