PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE BIDDING. I bought this car over a year ago planning to replace the engine but some health issues put that on hold indefinitely and now that I will be leaving the country at the end of year I must sell all my cars including this one. Although the car starts up fine and idles normally the engine will bog down under the slightest load, likely due to the fact that one of the 4 cylinders has very low compression. I actually drove it home when I first purchased it but you really have to feather the clutch and keep the RPM’s up to get it going. Once up to speed it seems to cruise perfect fine though. The bottom line is the engine really needs to be rebuilt or replaced. I bought a used replacement engine from a wrecked car some time back which supposedly ran fine and had 150K on it and I will throw this in with the deal if you want it. Obviously though I cannot guarantee that the engine runs well as I only have the previous owners word on it. Also its been sitting outside for quite a while now. As for the interior it’s actually in really good shape. On the exterior there is one dent in the side which looks like it could be fixed with one of those suction cup dent pullers. The paint on the roof and trunk must have been in bad shape at some point in the past because it appears those area have been repainted with a rattle can. The paint on the rest of the car seems to be in great shape however except for the extensive deep scratches on the hood. I do not know if they can be buffed out of not. Also the front tires will need to be replaced due to uneven wear, although the alignment problem which caused this has since been fixed. The car also needs a new drivers side mirror but other than that the car is in good shape. By the way, the reason I choose this car in the first place is because I would rather buy a low mileage car that needs engine work than a beat up running car that has over 200K on it. And if you are the same this might be a good project car for you. The car is sold as is of course and since it would likely not pass smog before the engine is rebuilt that will have to be your responsibility.
