History
History is mostly unknown as there were no service records or even registrations for the previous 3 years.
When purchased for $1200 usd the car barely ran. Got it home and code scanned with Carly. 65 total codes. The actual shape of the car appeared to be immaculate though. Until you looked close. The rear window seal had completely... Completely dry rotted and was missing I honestly don't know what holding the glass in. The mount for the anti-roll bar had been cut off and they drilled through the subframe and put a 1/2" dia. Muffler clamp in it's place. The goal has been to bring it back to life as one of my most loved models.
