This is the most desirable of the S-1 Series in that it has left hand drive, power steering and air conditioning. It is discounted $45,500.00 off the NADA suggested #1 condition price of $75,000.00 to more than compensate for some repairs. Someone is going to reap the benefits of this absolute bargain.
