I purchased this car last summer from a local charity where it had been donated. I drive it daily, and it's been quite a champ.
To get it up to par, I've replaced:
heat exchangers - stock style stainless from Parts Heaven
misc vacuum hoses
control pressure regulator (bosch 045, should be 069)
aux air regulator
ignition parts - wires, cap, rotor, plugs
all wheel bearings and seals
rear brake calipers
windshield washer pump and nozzles
rear brake hard lines between calipers and flexible hose
front rotors are new, rears have plenty of life
brake pads all around
parking brake cables
driver door stay
silicone valve cover gaskets
shift coupler bushings
clutch pedal spring
clutch pedal shaft
windshield seal and trim
turn signal switch
It has some nice parts:
weltmeister short shift kit
matching carrera tail (not attached in present form)
headlight relay kit
wide calipers in front - 24mm wide carrera rotors
stainless braided brake lines
cockpit vacuum gauge
cockpit wideband air/fuel gauge
rear splash guards
two sets of wheels: 15x6-7" ATS with 215/60 blizzaks, 15x7-8" fuchs with 205/50 and 225/50 falken ze-912
Odometer now shows 29,XXX (since federalized?). It didn't come with records, but it did have the original owner's manual which show it delivered in Germany where it was driven - a lot. The last record in 1983 shows 100,000km.
It does have some rust here and there and the paint isn't the best, but the car does clean up well. It also has a little leak on the driver side of the engine, I think from the intake rocker shaft hole - which I'd tightened but didn't have luck.
It has had a recent valve adjust by a local specialist, where everything was indicated to be in fine order. It doesn't use much oil at all, maybe 1/4 quart in 1000 miles. It currently is running Valvoline VR1 20W-50 in the engine and Swepco 201 in the transaxle.
The warm up regulator isn't quite correct; it runs a little rich upon startup, but it always starts, even at 10 below zero - yes, I drive it in the winter but I also wash it too! Also, the auto heat control no longer moves the flapper boxes, that's manual now and working fine. The blower portion will still cycle on/off depending on where the control knob is set.
Not a big deal if it doesn't sell, I'll just keep driving it or perhaps I'll cut it up and recycle it..
