You don't see these for sale very often around here.

Looks like this:

and probably is rust free.
She says it will need a clutch, which means you can probably drive it home.
Here's the link:

Mine has been quite reliable; we took it on a 2,000 mile trip several months ago.
They aren't real quick out of the hole, but that 3.52 final drive makes for a long lasting engine.

Would make an excellent dinghy behind someone's motor home.
This one looks to be stock.

No A/C

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

Double your budget and go for a used GT with a 5 speed.
Those hills around Alpine will make your life miserable in the GA.
It's geared for the long open road/flatlands.

They call it 'Alpine' for a reason :wink: :wink: :wink: .
