Runs great, rides smoothly, shifts easily, steering is solid (no slop).
Lots of parts replaced/repaired/rebuilt:New clutch, new rear wheel bearings, new wheel seals, rebuilt water pump, rebuilt carburetor, new door seals on all four doors, new windshield and rear window seals, new trunk weatherstrip, rebuilt vacuum wiper motor by Wiperman, new front and rear springs from Eaton Detroit, new shocks, new pinion seal, new heater core, new carpet, rebuilt radio, re-cored 3-row radiator with high efficiency core, new correct material headliner andsun visors, new rear seat speaker, new package tray, new trunk lining, new front exterior door handles, new driveshaft, new idler arm, battery replaced in April 2020, engine overhauled approx 2500 miles ago, extensive records from previous owner as well. Painted in factory-style color scheme Moonrise Gray/Talisman Red (pink). The one small paint defect on the left rear quarter should have been covered by the body shop warranty, but itturns out they sold out to a new owner two years ago and won't honor the warranty I had, so just figure the cost to repair is built into the price.
Inspections welcomed and encouraged. Car has wiring installed for a GM-style 10/12si alternator though it is currently running the factory generator with external voltage regulator. I can send a video to show how it's wired.
All fluids were changed when I first got the car in early 2016 and have been changed on schedule since then. Doesn't burn oil, starts right up strong. I'd planned to keep the car (otherwise I wouldn't have done all the work listed above to make it into a reliable, well-mannered no-excuses car) but now I kinda need the money and the space for other things.

Ask any questions, I'm happy to answer. I do have the spare tire/wheel and the jack base that holds it in position. Also included: service manual with notes fromtheprevious owner, records from previous owner. Most of my records are electronic, but I can provide what I can cobble together.
I can send a Dropbox link with more photos if you're interested.
