-MINIMAL RUST, a little bit of surface rust here around the windshield and under the car, NO ROT. It's very clean, and the pictures show that.

--Top end has no more than 100 miles on it, fresh valve job w/ new valveguides

-WOT switch installed on Throttle body, wired into the car and running a 16v ecm. I personally tuned the car and the a/f is perfect at WOT from idle to redline. The timing is currently set to 9degrees advance and it runs on 87 octane. It's not the fastest thing in the world but for what it is, it moves along well.
-9Q Quantum turbo diesel 5 speed trans with all appropriate linkage swapped in. EXCELLENT trans for cruising on the highway and has a close 1/2/3 gear pattern.
-Clutch installed with trans, about 25k miles ago.
-New trans mount
-Shifter bushings done when the trans was swapped out and are still fresh, the shifter feels great.

-Rear wheel cylinders replaced about 10k ago, Shoes and drums were in great shape.
-Rear wheel bearings done at the same time 10k ago.

**Interior & Exterior**
-Hella H4 headlights with sylvania silverstar bulbs
-Kenwood excelon headunit -- the stereo sounds great for small sized speakers!
-Infinity kappa front and rear speakers
-Pioneer amp and 10" sub in the trunk

The car is a factory non-a/c car and at one point had an aftermarket a/c unit installed, the heaterbox that was in the car was destroyed, so I was forced to source another heaterbox. The one in the car functions and works like it should, heat is blasting hot like it should be.
Have acquired correct A/C box, and controls, Condenser.

-Wired in 16v CE-1 mk2 cluster. I was having problems sourcing another fox tachometer cluster and had a spare 16v cluster around and wired it in. Everything works as it should, and if you wanted to you could wire in MFA at a later date.
