Car originally had gray interior, but I had started converting to black. The panels are painted and new carpet installed. Seats are still stock. One door panel has been cut up as I began working on the interior and was looking to reupholster them, but haven't been able to complete it. Fourth gen center console has been put in the car as well.
The car hasn't really been driven for the last 2 years. I had taken it out on a weekend trip (2-3) hours away and on the way home (in 100+ degree weather), it started stalling out once I got off the highway after about 2 hours of driving. I was able to get it home, but kept having to stop to let it cool down. I had it checked out and the shop concluded the fuel lines and clutch line were too close to the headers, fan needs to be upgraded, O2 sensors/wiring need to be replaced.
This is a project car that is extremely close to being completed. Serious buyers only.
