Interesting, but the interior coach-work does look very "homemade."

I think it is cool, so there.
The price is way out of line, sure there are not a lot of them. but it is
going to need a lot of work.

If money were no problem, a repaint, redo the interior in black, turbo
engine with a 5 speed and all the latest electronic dodads.
Get rid of the white walls.

I`ve always wanted a Limo, HMMMM, wonder if I could get the wife to
be the chauffeur..

I think the seller is dreaming at a price of $29,500. It looks nice if you are looking for a limo, but a bit of an oddity and I doubt there is enough demand to support a price like that. Let's see what it sells for. I doubt it will meet the reserve price.

At least it has manual climate controls and no Evil Servo!
It obviously won't make the reserve, much less Buy It Now. Hmmm, I wonder where in Dallas it is......

**edit**
I just noticed the ad says the tire size is 15"! Hmmmm, I wonder......

I think $30K would be a decent down payment for a Maybach

The seats look pretty tired.

No telling how many miles it has. I would not believe 141K for a minute.

Might not be a bad car but not at 29K!

The "wood" looks like formica or worse on the "bar".
