Car runs great when up to temp. Cranks and idles well. But stalls if not sufficiently warm.

Once warm, runs like a top. Hasn't stranded me, but sure it could use a good tuning.

Only ever run 93 octane in car since I've owned it.

All this work has been performed from January 2018 to present.

All work except fuel system performed by me. I have a "clean as you go" mindset, so the car is pretty clean even on panels you would never remove. Fuel system was serviced by a 70 year old bosch k-tronic cis mechanic.

Message me on here if interested in trying to make a deal. Open to reasonable offers.

I have just about ever part removed from the car, the old alternator, hardware, some switches, relays, rods, old plastic panels, and a ton of receipts. I think I have a set of manuals as well. (I will have to confirm that.) Also a stack of receipts. All is included.

I have gone to a few cars and coffees events in my area and the car gets a ton of attention.

252 six 1 seven, 8teen 49. I will respond pretty quick to a text. I am up most mornings early, so please refrain fromtexted or calling after 9pm.

This car is being sold AS-IS with no warranty stated or implied. I tried to make an effort to be as clear on what maintenance has been done to the car as well as what the car needs. Any additional needs that the car may need that I neglected to mention are purely because I was unaware.
