History Found through CL in a barn/garage in Milford, PA. where it had been sitting for 11 years on a wood floor.
Exterior The pan was intact except where someone drove over something and damaged the rear driver side floor. Otherwise pretty tame rust issues. Stripped car of everything and went to bare metal August '13; repair rust, replaced fender side supports, fixed rusted windshield corner and removed 70lbs of bondo from rear qtr due to bad hit repair. Damage wasn't as bad as first thought but required straightening.
Targa top is shot and have started rebuilding it.
Adding steel S bumper
Re-chromed door window sills & Targa window base trim. Rest was perfect.

Interior Repairing pockets.
Seats were like new except took them apart to clean and refinish the supports. Also have a set of LS Recaros.
Becker-Mexico radio rebuilt.
Needs new carpets.
Will clean up gauges, minor rust around the face rings.

Performance Upgrades Keeping mostly stock

Engine / Under the Hood Rebuilt engine with new pistons, cylinders, rigs, chains, tensioners & pop-off. New clutch parts too. Valve job with new seats.
Stripped, cleaned and resealed gas tank.
Power coated trans support
Re-Zinc'd all nuts, bolts & latches

Suspension New Shocks all around-Bilstein most likely.
Rebuilt the brakes and will add new brake lines.

Wheels and Tires Tires were also at least 12 to 13 years old but look brand new and hold air??!!
Fuchs need total restoration.
Picked up a set of cookies date stamped to the car and will be polishing them to a very high gloss.
