First of all, these still exist? Second, where do I sign way my soul?
The Citation is a largely forgotten car from the early 1980s, when American car companies were still stuck in the Malaise era. For those of you who don’t know, the X-11 package packs a 2.8 liter V6 pumping out an amazing 135 horsepower, directed to the front wheels. SPORTY!
It may not look the part, but the X-11 was designed to compete in SCCA events. Whether they were any good is beyond me, but I wouldn’t say no to one of these.
From the ad:
This is a rare completely original and 100% rust free 1982 Chevy Citation X-11. This car is 1 of 3,864 units produced in 1982.

The engine starts right away and sounds great. The acceleration is super and the car is a lot of fun to drive. Super clean engine and compartment appears ads thought the engine has been rebuilt once before. There are no leaks, smoke, overheating or strange noises. She runs extremely well. The Clutch is perfect and shifting through the gears is effortless. The brakes, steering and suspension are all in good working order.

Cosmetically a car does not get more original and untouched. The body, chassis, frame and floors are 100% solid and rust free. There are no dents. The paint is entirely original without even a touch up spot. There are of course minimal nicks, chips, dings, fading, etc. The overall appearance is outstanding.
Interior : The interior compliments the exterior beautifully. The seats are still firm and comfortable with no tears and little wear. The headliner and visors are in need of repair. The dash has a few cracks, however there is a nicely fitted matching dash cover. Nice door panels. The carpeting does show some wear on the drivers side. Rear parcel shelf is intact.
