I am selling this car on behalf of my dad who is the 2nd owner of this car. This car was purchased from the original owner who happened to be his next door neighbor in February of this year.

Receipts for above maintenance will be included for buyer's records.

-I still have the original side mirrors but they were removed
-Have all original badges except for the 5 speed badge on the trunk
-Clean undercarriage

Aftermarket parts:

-Car has a small rust through spot on the passenger side rear rocker panel
-Turn signal indicator stock stopped working on 10/22 although the lights still work if you use the hazard button.-Cracks on dash-Cracks in vinyl on driver seat bottom, all other seats and door panels are in excellent condition
-Oil pan gasket does leak a little bit of oil.-E-Brake indicator light stuck on (was told sensor could be bad but does not affect driving)
-Due to surface rust and paint cracks a new paint job would easily double the value of this car. see the BringaTrailer website to see the market for these
Have receipt for the above maintenance. Car runs great and shifts smooth. Car has not been in an accident and is very original. Serious offers only. Not many you'll find like this nowadays.
