The car starts, stops and drives exactly as you would expect. It pulls hard, revs smoothly and runs cool with excellent oil pressure even in the 100+ degree Texas summer heat. The clutch is strong, the car shifts precisely and brakes easily and in a straight line. There are no oil leaks or smoking from the engine. The car has never been involved in any type of accident or collision and is 100% rust free and as clean and solid as its low mileage suggests. Everything in the car works as it should - lights, switches, wipers, gauges, everything. The air conditioning blows ice cold. The car is, of course, numbers-matching and the sensation behind the wheel is that of driving a brand new car.
From every angle, the car presents beautifully. The original paint is in outstanding condition owing, at least in part, to Dr. Jackson's decision to install clear protective film on the hood, fenders, mirrors, and roof line. There are no dents are scratches - not even a door ding - and the paint appears closer to 38 days old than 38 years. The rubber seals, trim, lenses and exterior hardware are all absolutely outstanding. The car retains 100% of it's original glass including its original windshield with correct, factory markings.
The interior of this 924S is a testament to what original, low-mileage cars should be.
The dash is perfect - free of cracks and showing no warping. The door panels are flawless. The controls and various switches are beautiful. The seats are outstanding. The carpets are spotless and covered with a protective film. The gauges are clear and bright appearing as new. The steering wheel is pristine. Unlike so many cars of the era, the original Blaupunkt radio is still in the dash and functioning as it should.
