Yes, the bumpers needed and have had a freshen up but the body is all original Everglade. The old guy who had it before me took to the front bumper with a can of grey paint due to a couple of stone chips !!.

Here is some interior shots.
I purchased the car a couple of years back from a little old lady (naturally) . Originally it was a demo being one of the first Executive turbos produced. It has 102,000 on the clock. The car has standard suspension rather than FE-2 becuase at the time of production GM had not made FE-2 a mandatory fit on VL Turbos.

They are all SL's my friend. Executive is simply a "Pack" put onto an SL. An executive pack usually has air, steer, and auto trans.

It's the Vacationer code. There were two different blues that came up, both from November 1987 on Vacationers that I'd never seen on any other VL.

The Tuxedo and Prospect cars were also made in November 1987. Must have been the month for weird colours.

I know everyone says they'd love a Mulberry, Silverslate, Black or Everglade car but I found Mink and Corniche to be even rarer.
