1979 Other Makes G80 description
Built by a rally race car driver. Length is 15.9 feet.
Original 1.6 head and block were swapped out for a 1.8 Liter with ported and polished head and euro G cam. Also switched over to electronic ignition. All other 1979 engine parts were retained. I put 100 racing gas mixed with 20% of 110 racing gas and it will peel out in first gear.
Original four-speed manual transmission gives 100 mph top speed.
Exhaust has been given a new catalytic converter and is a straight through exhaust to a resonated glass pack Ansa exhaust tip. Has a very mean sound.
The suspension is Koni yellows with H & R springs in the front and Koni reds with stock springs in the rear. It corners better than most people think.
Wheels are 15-inch Momoâ€˜s on 195â€“50â€“15â€˜s.
Brakes are cross-drilled rotors.
All windows open, including middle windows that slide open.
Seating arrangements are two upfront, and two facing two in the rear.
What it needs to be Show-Ready:
Top needs to be finished.Center section can use sanding and re-spray.Rear needs new carpet.Driverâ€™s seat left bolster could use a re-stitching.Door-lock mechanism on driverâ€™s door jam works but should be replaced.Door weather-stripping gasket for driverâ€™s door.Back left window does go down but is jammed right now.Needs an interior door handle for back driverâ€™s side door.Odometer and speedometer do not function.
No leaks, no smoke, and no over-heating.
