Came across what would appear to be a very well priced Longchamp on Ebay.

Longchamp Ebay
Original Post
That seems likes a pretty good deal on a Longchamp..............only if I had the room...and means.
Does anybody know this car who can give us a report on it? (I'm not interested in it, but somebody else here may be.)

I forwarded the auction to PCNC member Jim Cain who lives in Atascadero. He's emailed the seller that he'd like to go look at the car. One of us will report what he finds out.
It has been on the market for a while. Just by looking at the pictures, a couple things stand up:

1. Interior colour combo might not be to everyones taste, and limit the amount of prospective buyers.

2. Sills are unlike any Longchamp I´ve seen. Almost like somebody had tried to make an aero kit, but not bothering with the front or rear.
The seller is one of my neighbors (well, 6 or 7 miles away). I didn't have the time to do an in depth inspection or drive. So, here's the quick and dirty:
Paint is a 20 foot job, poor prep not polished and lifting/peeling in several areas. I think my 1st paint job I did as a teenager in my dad's driveway was better!
There was rust thru in the valance below the radiator.
There was rust on a couple of supports the rear of the trunk under the carpet and along the lower seam of the left rear 1/4. I didn't look for more.
The motor started right up(it was warm before I got there) and ran fine, sounded good but, there was a bit of smoke. If the motor was rebuilt 3000 miles ago I think it was rebuilt by Krylon.
Saw the receipt for the trans rebuild.
Tires are good, no A/C(did they come with A/C?), no smog equipment.
Interior is fine if you like the red velor inserts.
Thats the quick and dirty.
