I got it from the original owner (cheap), it sat in a carport for 8 years decaying. Body was striaght and the drivetrain had been well cared for.
While I haven't done a lot with the exterior yet, I did get the H4s and the clear corners in, the wheels on and managed to get some sanding and priming done.

I still have to swap the bumpers out.
I've replaced the gas tank (rust), both pumps, filter, fuel distributor and all four injectors due to rust (did I mention it sat for a while?).
I swapped in an OD trans and related parts.
It needed a blower fan so I replaced the fan motor, heater core and added an evap
for future creature comforts.
All four wheel brakes were rusted beyond hope therefore replaced.

I swapped out the trashed gray interior for a GT interior and a crack free dash.


Along with a bunch of small interior stuff and new seat belts, I still have the polished R sport cluster and r/window louvers but haven't put them on yet.
