This car is a daily driver and has been built to be enjoyable and handle well while remaining practical. It has several imperfections including leaks, scuffs, scratches, dents, dings, and flaking paint in certain areas. This is, however, purely cosmetic and doesn't effect this car's true ability and potential as a pro touring machine. This car is original with one repaint. The paint looks alright from a distance but is cheap and flaking in areas. The body appears to be fairly straight with no real use of bondo. There is paint flaking on the roof and passenger fender, two scrapes on the drivers fender, and a minor dent on the hood and roof. The original floor pan has been cut out and replaced with flat panels in order to install full length square tubing frame bracing. The original unibody is incredibly weak and after placing the frame in a jig and installing the bracing it has none of the normal unibody flex and handles significantly better as a result. Glass is all there and intact with the front and rear windows having new rubber seals installed. The glass is all original and shows signs of age. The heater has been gone through and rebuilt with a new core and seals. The column has a new turn signal mechanism installed. Seats are leather from a Subaru and are starting to crack.
