Did not start when I arrived. Does not run well - clutch slips, hesitates, etc. No heat. Not a clean body panel. Interior is trashed. Cowls are broken. Hood and tail lights look decent. I rented a uhaul and trailer to get it back. $1300 car is turning into 5k real quick. Haha. Oh well.

Well that sucks...you’ve got a great attitude about it though.

I talked to the guy a couple weeks ago, definitely seems like they “over-represented” the car as he told me “it really just needs a good coat of paint and interior is a little dusty.” The pics may have also been strategic, as the interior looked really nice, panels looked pretty good etc in the posted pics. Guess you never know until you can put your hands on it. Then again, I guess you get a nice 83 hood out of it, right?

Drive safely back east!

I find posting pics on here to be time consuming any more. I'll text them if anyone wants to see pictures.
