It's a base, late '78 model that had a blown engine, 4 speed, and some body damage. It wouldn't have been worth much, as it was probably going to the crusher if I hadn't bought it as a toy. I wouldn't do what I've done to a pristine, low mileage, desirable model. Which is why I bought one very few people wanted. It was in good enough shape to do what I wanted without getting ridiculous with the bodywork, but not so good that it should be restored. Engine and suspension work is a different story on the ridiculous scale of things. My vision is an SA that looks almost stock, but performs better than an FD. This is my path to that goal.

1988 N/A SE model FC, dead stock and less than 85k on the clock. This one actually runs, so I don't fuck with it.
