    Looks like a solid project. I think the sun took its toll on the car but still a good project. Keep us posted. Welcome to NastyZ28

    Yea definitely looks like a solid body. More sun damage to the paint and interior than rust damage to the body. 4spd car too. Go for it and have fun, thats the key.

    Yeah the sun really did a number on the car. pretty much everything interior need to be replaced. all the plastics are brittle and broke. floor pans suck to. body looks good just surface rust. car sat outside for over 3 years in AZ. so hopefully not to much body work. would like to get it running and floor boards fixed,brakes working and drive it as I repair everything else.

    When I first saw the interior pic, I immediately thought rust. Body actually looks pretty solid. Cool to see a factory 4-speed.

    Looks like a great start for a project. I would definately recommend stripping the body all the way down though. I thought mine would not require much body work until I stripped it down and found some crappy previous body work.
