Boler - 1988?

I'm currently shopping for a Boler and have found an ad for a 1988 Boler. Did they even make Bolers in 1988? He's asking $7000. Any comments?

Yes, there are a very few rare '88's out there. I believe that this was the last year of production. Probably the last ones made in the Midhurst plant near Barrie, Ont.
