As Don said it's for one of the fresh air intakes. It connects the forward duct to the one in the firewall. It looks a bit odd but that's actually how they came from the factory. You'll see it on both sides.

Side note, I believe the one in the picture is aftermarket. AFAIK the factory ones had closer-spaced baffles.

Alright guys I went again yesterday with my uncle to check it out here are some pics. I think I am going to pass on this one, definitely not a even trade. Even if I had all the time and money I couldn't see spending more than 4k on this. After taking a step back and not looking at it with rose colored glasses I actually see the amount of work/money this will take to get up to par. You guys were right it is re-sprayed, the original paint is supposed to be white Jade / Onyx and the interior was supposed to be Black cloth and yellow leather. If anyone sees one that is in good shape and all stock that doesn't need a ton of work just to cruise on the weekends while I slowly shine it up and bring it back to life. Let me know. I will be selling my truck and one of my motorcycles so I should have around15-18k. I will keep looking, Thanks again for all the help you guys are amazing!

The one linked in an earlier post on Facebook seems like a bargain and even has the rare factory A/C! If you don't use Facebook, I can try to get contact information for you. It was apparently restored 12 years ago and driven little since. You could easily spend double the price and not have the other car still be not nearly as nice!

Bring starter fluid when you visit. If it starts, then it will PROBABLY be an easy-ish fix (though could be something weird like a bad fuel pump)

13k is a but high considering the paint doesn't look too good, but the interior is nice. Weird the owner didn't try to power wash it before putting it up for sale.

Also, I'm talking a bit outside of my scope here so I'd definitely wait for some second opinions.

Edit: also the push button gear selection is cool but I've heard it's unreliable and hard to get parts for. If you get it running don't forget to check all thr gears.

The black one looks honest and unmolested. I have to say if it were me I'd probably slow down and bit and learn a bit more about these cars before buying one. Like with any purchase in life they are better made with knowledge. I think your seeing now these are rare, but not impossible to find and when they come up in your area, pretty solid.

Are you the one that will recommission the car? Reason I ask, you are targeting ones that can easily absorb $5k+ if you aren't doing the work. If your mechanically inclined the black car could be a nice project, but $13k for a non-runner is crazy money for that. That car should go down the road and not do anything offensive for that price (and be better cosmetically).

I'm seeing a full fuel system service - drop tank, flush lines, etc.. Brakes all around, tires, suspension etc..
