VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Supposedly ran when parked 23 years ago (2001). Currently the engine turns over only about 1/5 of the way. I suspect stuck valves, but don't know. Apparently the previous owner planned to swap the body on it, reusing the drivetrain, but never got around to it. There is a stiff, used water pump, and a used trans rebuild kit, in the trunk.

The car appears to be complete and not really messed with over the years. Only thing obviously missing is the trunk lock (and trunk key) for some reason. Have the ignition key. Included wheel skirts and the other hubcaps.

Would have been a nice survivor car if it weren't just so rotted out.
