honey i hit the lottery, pack your bags!

YES! Where are we going?
We? Your outta here!
Just cleaned her up, actually shes still considered a project car,
but its reflected in the price. $2800
bought last year from orig owner with broken belt.
He installed new clutch and michelin pilot tires all around withen last year. 96K miles currently.
I replaced the head with a good used one and new belts and rollers.
Has updated water pump. needs mounts, reseal, sunroof water leak fixed (sunroof seal) cracked dash, some switches dont work, sway bar bushings but she pulls hard and handles like a dream and doesnt smoke. 3psi when hot and temp gauge stays in middle.
excellent car to restore because its almost there, no accidents and car was professionally repainted years ago and is shiny with small imperfections.
orig windsheld is pitted and i would replace.
too many cars , shes gotta go.
ebay next week.
3-19-95- car is no longer available for sale. CAnt let her go!

detailed description 85,944 $2800

Detailed car description:

BODY: HOOD- has @ 5 spots in paint damaged where trees sap sat on it
FENDERS- both straight and in great shape
DOORS- straight, power mirrors dont work(never checked why)
door panels in great shape
QUARTERS- great shape
BACK-key opens hatch lockhave to wiggle the hatch to open(needs pin alignment)
SUNROOF- leaks because seal is shot(I just got a replacement from
a parts car that I will install)
REAR BUMPER- a little pushed in on one side when I backed into
my basketball pole @ 10mph (, I'll be pulling it out) one of
the plastic fillers cracked when that happened
FRONT BUMPER and valance\air dam- good shape, factory fog lights are installed
but aftermarket wiring was installed and not hooked up
PAINT- good- wet sanded with 2000 and waxed
INTERIOR-DASH-cracked, clock, tach, speedo, mpg gauges all work
odometer stopped working recently, clock shows @95.5K
actually has @96K, instrument panel light dim.
HEAT, A\C- PO says A\C works with a charge, I never ckecked
Heat and defrost work, fan noisy at low speed.
Wipers noisy also but work
Windshield has wiper marks scratched into it, its orig and
pitted but drivable.
Have to wiggle the key to turn the ignition, when set to on
the PO installed a push button start on dash (I think this is
actually a nice feature) car starts right up and idles good
when cold and hot, when slightly warm sometimes it needs to be feathered until warm.
Engine could use new motor mounts, front seal oil leak,
strong running througout the power band, no smoke.
no problem reving to 5-6K as shift points.
New Clutch cost PO $2K with less than 5K miles, I can take a measurement of the lining thickness. shifts great no noise feels extremely accurate and strong.
Exhaust, new fitting installed recently for O2 sensor and O2 sensor is new. Muffler is orig and could be changed.
Tires like new Michelin PIlot with @5K miles on them, PO spraypainted the cookie cutters silver (why?)
Brakes- car stops good and doesnt pull, linings are good.
Power steering fitting broken by tow driver when I purchased the car, Its the hose from the pump to the rack I have to see if its just a new hose needed or if the rack is damaged but I drive it without fluid in system and the belt removed.
Interior is clean and driver seat is leather but ripped, passenger
seat is in great shape, I have cloth covers over them.
Headliner is great, carpet faded, rear seat great shape
Lighting-headlights go up and down, lowbeams sometimes do not turn on (loose wire ?) high beams always work
emergency brake barely holds car, needs new shoes.
No accidents, and looks sharp!
If any of the above are sticking points to prevent the sale I am willing to make the repair or lower the price further to complete
the sale. I dont think this will go on ebay, if no takers I may store
it in Florida.
Purchased from orig owner with 95K miles.
Some of the Work I did:

Replacement cyl head and gasket set and head nuts.$250
Installed new timing belt, balance belt and tession rollers.$120
new o2 sensor and sensor fitting replacement $75
check and retensioned belts as needed.
Replaced broken door mirror glass.$20
MARKS914 I'll e-mail you the pictures later today.

I saw the car this past weekend when I went up to pick up a motor from earlr85944. Great guy and the car is in decent shape like he is describing it. Good luck with the sale.
