Other items to note and be aware of:

  • ABS has been deleted
  • CAT has been eliminated
  • Windshield washer fluid pump does not work
  • Antenna motor works, but antenna does not go up and down due to plastic piece being stripped (I prefer it to stay down, looks kinda silly up.)
  • AC works, but has a slow leak somewhere and needs to be recharged at the beginning of summer
  • Previous owner repainted the car (a couple chips and scratches)
  • Driver side handle recently broke - I have sourced a new handle, but haven't fixed it. 
  • Driver side mirror is black because it had to be replaced. (Matches black trim.) Passenger side mirror is still red.
PLEASE NOTE: This car is 31 years old. It will need TLC. Probably not a good idea for a 1st car or the non-mechanically inclined. Happy to show the car to anyone seriously interested via Face Time or locally in person. Car is being sold AS IS, sale is final, NO TRADES. Thank you!
