This is a nice solid car. I am listing this for my brother who is the original and current owner of the car. He purchased it new in 1979, and has taken exceptional care of it ever since. It has had a recent re-paint, and is excellent, (I have pictures of the 35 year old paint before the repaint). The the interior is excellent, only significant issues are the dash has 2 small cracks. It has a new carpet, and I have pictures of the solid and original floor pans.

The wheels are excellent (the original wheel locks come with the car, they were not on when the photos where taken.) Tires are ok, but it could use some new shoes. All gauges work, including the very cool monitoring system (it checks lights, and fluid levels). The A/C was converted to 134a a while back, and works fine. The cruise works about 50% of the time ( I think the cable to the actuator is a bit sticky, and causes it to switch off). Overall the car starts, stops, and rides great. Good power, does not use oil or smoke. Motor, and transmission have never been opened or modified. Suspension,and exhaust maintained to original specifications. Transmission and clutch are excellent. (new clutch at about 80kmi.). The stereo has been modified for an external input, and 2 box speakers added to rear hatch area. (original speakers, and covers are included.) Rear defogger doesn't work, and it needs a new power antenna.

If you want a nice solid unmolested 2 seat, 5 spd. Z car, with excellent options at a reasonable price, this is it.
