It's a fairly common item to fail over time. Costs about 60 dollars for the part but sits right below the manifold.
Very easy to replace while your there.

what maintenance to perform with walnut blast, pic

Just my own opinion but good time to change oil filter housing gasket and oil cooler gasket. Also fuel pressure sensor.

Nice looking car by the way.
