That interior actually looked to be in good condition too.

What a shame. I wouldve bought those seats

Well, the chasis might be all wobbly, but that nothing some undercarriage bracing couldn't fix right? Also, I kinda like the four-door convertible look. Just wish the car wasn't ruined to get it.

Bonus FUN FACT: Lexus did officially make a Landaulet version of the LS last year. It was a one-off. We wrote about that and this video on the front page. Check it out.
