A great running car. Brakes are super. Trans shifts great. Should get a new clutch. Car comes with a new battery (the old battery worked for me most of the time, but I have built an uncanny sense of exactly how to start it; three failed attempts and it is not going to turn over a fourth, so it will come with a brand new, extremely fine battery.) The paint is thin and the rust is everywhere. It is extraordinary looking in the way a giant boulder is magnificent, or perhaps, a charging buffalo. There are colors on this car that exist only in nature. Indescribable deep rich hues that are impossible to categorize but are immediately familiar. A very nice, tattered, very beat up, wonderfully patina'd car of great integrity for $2250.
