I love the angular lines. And the dash looks like a cockpit layout. Purportedly it's only got 50,000 miles. It's nearly like new! Such a bargain!

Too bad it's not the 2 door hatch.

Should be a carb'd 1.5.

Which means that the older 4g32 would drop right in and give a nice 25-30hp bump.

(Side note: i had no idea the 4g32 was around for so damn long)

if only it was a later one where a 4G63 drops in without too much effort. Not that the final results wouldn't make the juice worth the squeeze to do it to this one.

yeah, this. that thing is such a sad looking quintessential 80's box that it'd make a KILLER sleeper.
