car needs quite a bit of work - someone was messing around with the electricals under the dash and one of the hydrollic lifts for the roof is shot. costly to repair ...that is why I steered away from it.

roof motor? it's not the roof motor; its the hydrolic cylinder and u can't find good used ones because they don't exist. then you have to replace and syn the hydrolics to make both work at the same time.

new trunk lid. holes in trunk from aftermarket spoiler that was taken
new under dash panel
a/c not working -heater fan stuck on 4 doesn't work on any other speed.
hood has a few dents
new hood release cable and handle
seat back is loose either because it is broken or replaced with another.
at some point repair or replace canvas roof-holes in it.
trunk paneling is missing and holes were drilled in the trunk floor.
power antenna pooched
rims are ruff - need refinishing or replacing
needs new rear shocks -billies
runs ruff at low idle
needs a good detailing
the a pillars were messed with most likely leak or electrical stuff
some wiring around spoiler area cut off and taped.

the good - paint seems decent although car dirty
brakes fairly new
exhaust SS looks solid
clutch and shifter is tight
lowered suspension
interior is decent aside from the drivers seat back loose
hood and trunk shocks work
door locks and windows work

this is just what I found in about 15 min of looking the car over.

would I pay 2600 for it? nope..2000 for it nope..but that is just me. good base for a project car.

oh and it comes from Quebec - hope not Montreal LOL
and odometer says 160k...ah no way..nobody does a repaint on a car with low ks unless mileage not true or rust/damage.

If this car is from Quebec take a very very good look for body work hiding things, like under the side skirts..... Could explain the repaint, Quebec cars are prone to rot!!!
