If this wasn't at the other end of the Great Lakes from me I'd be all over this.
It's one of the "new" Vantage X designs from the '84 catalogue posted on these here forums some time ago. I was able to finally decipher at least one of the model numbers from that (very small) scan.

The finish looks very much like the "Silverstone" colour seen on Westone Spectrums.

CAD $350 (but negotiable)

I don't see as many of these "new" Vantage designs (Avengers, X, etc) as I thought I might. The majority are still the originally designed Avengers, Entertainers, VP's, VS's and so on.

I do like this one. But it's at the top of Lake Superior fer Pete's sake! :bawl:
