Car is fast, has won numerous Autocross first place finishes and first place season finishes. I have completed the work during my nearly 10 years of ownership. It has been my passion and hobby restoring this vehicle. Engine anddrive-lineis a 10 out of 10, paint is good except Rear fenwr has started bubbling from 10 year old paint job. Paint still shows well. Interior is very nice for a car of its type, no radio, no AC, no heat. Car has way more than I am listing as I have forgotten much of what I have done over time. If you have questions let me know. I am selling as I have new hobbies and am ready to move on. Car is sold as is with no warranties of any kind. Many spares included
