Im not sure if the name of that color is Anthracite Gray, but I think it is, and it was a factory color at the time that car was manufactured.

The color matched wheels are interesting. They dont look awful, but they look odd to me.

I also observed that the rear hat shelf is raised, and the first aid kit is deleted. I wonder what that was done for?

The car has surely seen better days.. the paint isnt bad but the trim and the interior have been neglected. Seems like a questionable purchase.

Those 14 inchers look awesome with rest of the paint... though at first I thought the seller hadn't cleaned the wheels for a long time

trim pass side front door, mismatch paint on same side at fender/ main body joint.

not terrible for its age, pretty good actually body wise, cant figure the fender mismatch, quite. interior, seat a little rough in an odd place, the side of the back is not worn. motor looks pretty clean. wood looks sharp.

unusual wheel treatment, cant say it really looks better or worse, but notably different.

might be a good little 123.
