More Details & Pictures

Selling vehicle due to a growing family and a need for something larger than a two-seater. Vehicle has spent the majority of its life in Southern California and Southern Utah, so very little rust on body / undercarriage. Engine is dry and clean. 4-cylinder 1.8L boxer engine, manual transmission. Convertible FWD/AWD via shifter knob.

Clean UT title, registered as an antique vehicle in UT. Garage stored throughout vehicle life in UT. Vehicle starts right up! Drive it home or trailer it, it’s up to you! She does fine on the highway.

Dashboard and steering wheel are badly cracked due to sun damage. Carpet kit installed on dashboard, custom leather steering wheel cover installed. Interior floor mats / floor boards do show signs of wear typical for a 40-year-old vehicle.

Does burn / use a little oil. Currently running 10W/40.
