Needs a little body work and ALOT of cleaning , but its all there and runs good , guy road raced it so I am sure there will be some bumps to work out , but I got it for a steal ....













needs drivers fender and door , the rest I can fix , probably put new headlights on it as well then paint it back the original red and do ALOT of cleaning on the inside , new carpet , guy gave me all new door panels and rear interior panels along with the original wheels and ALOT of extra parts

Because it makes a nice project. And when its done, it gives you the satisfaction that you made it nice when it used to look like ****.

The previous owner kept it this nasty so it would be a good project car?

I don't think it looks like ****, might smell like it but over all its nice..but then again I'm looking at it all cleaned up. I love cleaning cars, If I lived close by Id clean it completely for him.

Hm. I do wonder why in the world he would let it get so dirty. Oh and i wouldn't let your wife see it till it's pretty lol. If I brought that home to my wifey I'd be sleeping in it.

I will just say this, I stole it for the price I gave , the guy used it for road racing and he has moved 2 times in last few years and his wife is now disabled and he is 62 years old , so it basically has just been sitting for several years , he just decided to sell it recently

It certainly looks like a solid project car but I suspect you're going to need deep pockets to fix it up 'cause it's gonna be a money pit.

not really , found 2 doors and a fender for 400 bucks , carpets little over 100 , ALOT of cleaning and I am fully capable of fixing the rest of the body work on the rear quarter myself and then CLEAN on it for days , guy gave me just about every new panel for the interior with the car ......and the original wheels , all the stock AC parts , fog lights etc that go back on the car , new header panel behind the headlights since thats why the corner light is hanging out , I had the back of my truck full of parts he gave me with the car

Excellent. Certainly helps to have all those parts at your disposal. Should save you quite a few pennies. :yes

Simple green also works good on everything. I pulled my whole center console out when I bought my car and sprayed it down with simple green. Worked great

if u wanna get body parts cheaper use craigslist. i think 400 is a little high for 2 doors and fenders. thats just my opinion though. i bought mine for much cheaper. btw whats the paint code on that? is it the e9 red? if so thats gunna be a bit expensive to repaint. its a tri coat if you know what that is. i have a 94 that was e9. i found a red that looked similar but actually better cause it had ALOT of gold pearl in it. makes a nice flash in the light. it was cheaper and still looks great. ill show u some pics if you want to see what it came out like. good luck on the project. i just finished one similar to it.
