Bad: It has rust in the a-pillars under the trim where the vinyl top used to be, so it leaks water. The LF fender is messed up at the end, but a new fender piece and trim are included. The paint is really sad. It has oil leaks. That's about it!

$5,000 firm. Letting it go cheap and fast so I can buy an AMX. Located in Washington state.

Shot yesterday! It went in the shop for the rear axle and it turns out one of the parking brake assemblies came apart and smoked the brake fluid leaking out of a bad wheel cylinder, so the rear axle is okay! It's getting all new back brakes (drums, shoes, hardware, parking brakes, wheel cylinders). Additionally, we found that the idler arm was bad so it's getting one of those along with a pitman and inner and outer tie rods. I'd like to add that despite not driving this car in 3 months, it fired right up and drove to the shop like a champ!
