I had one of these back in the mid '70s, I traded my '72 Vega Panel Express for it...no cash involved. These were fun cars when new, not sure about this one. I got rid of mine after about a year (for a TR3A), I got tired of all the pre-teen girls pointing at it and saying: "...cute car". At 6ft 4 I had to recline the drivers seat nearly all the way back to get a comfortable reach to the steering wheel.

Mine had one or 2 electrical "problems" that randomly re-occured, very annoying. If I remember right, one was the ignition interlock/seatbelt reminder caused it to blow one of the few fuses in the electrical system.

$500? If the pictures are accurate, that probably what it's worth.
