Red and gold is a great combination on 3rd Gens. I had a friend with a nearly identical car back in the 80s. trophy image

(A shame about the louvers, though... )

I found this project sitting in a little hole in the wall dealership, just waiting for someone to pick it up in December 2002. I had some pretty big plans for this car, however I found Black Magic only 6 months later and couldn't pass up a good deal, so I sold this car in October of 2003. Someone even stole the hood louvers the night before I bought the car.


This car was bone stock, with a pitiful 305 and a 4 barrel carb, that was in need a major tuneup and cleaning.

Factory Options

It didn't have much more than the basics, except for power windows, power steering and power brakes. Everything else was stock from the factory.


The only thing I did to this car before I sold it was to install a Pioneer CD player and a Grant steering wheel.
