Not mine.

Holy crap--very dubious HP claims and looks like a conversion from a GA SOHC Swift, but still...

It looks more like a conversion from a Geo Metro base. (light grey interior and seat upholstery, black door handles, no rear wiper/washer, manual gas lid flap.)

Those look like Nissan wheels for sure. Not the Altima but maybe the "lower class" Sentra. :lol: :lol: 1999-2001

That is a cool 4 door vert. It would be cooler to do the rear doors 63 Lincoln Continental style suicide doors.

Suzukitom beat me to looking at this one. Pleasure meeting you Tom.

Someone tapped into the ignition feed when they installed the alarm. Not sure if that could be part of the problem.

There is rust along the chassis just behind the rockers and wheel well on both sides. Loonie size rust spot on inner fender in front of the tower... But frame horns and towers are in great shape.

It's worth saving!

That car is not bad above the floor. There are holes on the bottom of the first floor rail indentation.. As well as behind the control arm bolts .. floor carpets are and gave been very damp... probably from leaking sunroof ..
. Nice chatting with you also Clinty! It was an impromptu teamswift meeting.. that must be the secret to getting folks to meet.. post an ad for a cheap car and wait! :P

I passed on it but good complete car for parts or a rolling project someone with good rust repair skills. ..

50 mpg down to 30 mpg... that weight actually kills mpg and performance.
