Bought this thing a few years back with the intention of LS swapping but never got around to it (go figure) so it's sat pretty much exactly like I bought it, figured I should probably clear out some space.


It's got a 2TC 1.6 engine (HEMI design so this thing runs off the tears of haters and stripper glitter) with a 2bbl Weber swapped on. The engine ran when I got it, but it's been sitting for quite some time so I'll make sure she still turns over. I yanked the rear window shelf and trunk floor out, found a whole bunch of cancer and that's pretty much when I stopped working on it.

It's 1900lbs, RWD and a 4 speed stick so in theory you could have some mediocre amount of fun with it with a little elbow grease and low standards. Rust is pretty bad around the rear window trim and somebody apparently tried to fix it with JB Weld. Probably the same guy that fogged it primer gray (which is likely hiding more rust). The good news is, the sheet metal is already so thin you could cut open a bud lite can, rivet it place and be pretty much good as new.

I'm being completely honest here, she's ugly, she don't run and she's gonna need a good amount of work. Your girlfriend/wife/family will hate this car and ask you what the hell you were thinking. But if you got some cash and a trailer, I got a bill of sale and we can get this thing outta the yard.

Open to trades, lemme know what you got. Preferably not another rusty non-running car, since, y'know, that's what I'm trying to get rid of.
