look alright, trunk alignment on the pass. side is off by a lot tho, makes it look like they used 95-97trunk lights, but more than likely it was rear ended and not properly adjusted.

or perhaps the lighting+open trunk are throwing me off.

The whole trunk lid w/ lights and badges must have come from a UCF20 Series I. That explains the alignment and lights. The outer lights on the back are UCF20 Series II lights.

As a result, there may be a few more miles on it

typically only 200 to 400 - than the mileage listed above.
Wow...that is quite a test drive.

Look again at the very first picture. The back driver's side door does not line up correctly along it's bottom edge.

As someone else mentioned, this car looks like it has been in an accident.

Perhaps someone just got a complete trunk lid off of another similarly colored (and perhaps older?) ls400 to repair some rear end damage.

Thank god I have a mill gauge and some experience in body work. My 92 has seen unpleasant times but not to the point where it was repaired improperly. Speaking of which, I need to paint soon....

The paint flaking and cracking off the rear bumper is a dead giveaway of accident damage and poor panel repairs.......the fact that the bootlid (sorry - "trunk" ) doesn't even come close to lining up is another.
