First off price high but had to have a number. Serious buyers can negotiate.


Have owned this car for around 15 years, was my daily driver for last 8 or so years. Might be best car I ever owned. Have fought rust since I have bought it, kept up with it pretty well. Here is one of the larger repairs viewtopic.php?f=22&t=39555 Had a light rear ender and side swiped by semi trailer but refused to die. Finally a large tree branch finished it off (for me anyways). Passed aircare every year, used about a quart of oil every 5000km (oil change time) but most of it was leaks. Trans shifted well, but would grind slightly down shifting into first. (I would roll to a stop in neutral and put in second then first and never a problem) A light "snick" odd time into third also. Trans oil looks like sludge because I used moly slip from day I bought it. Was starting to get front end wobble around 100kmh from passenger side, seemed like inner tie rod end had play when I pulled it apart. Radiator cooling fan operated by manual switch. Will add more if I remember something.

Tree branch broke windshield, squashed cowl and fender, some hood damage. Drove it like that for a few months until I bought a 2000 metro. (yuck what a slug compared to turbo fly). Can still be test driven if needed. Consider parting but not until motor and trans sells so buyer can see/test operating.

Please be patient.
