History & current state

Engine

It has its original engine and runs very strong. The power delivery is smooth, the drivetrain doesn’t make any bad running noise, and the gearbox shifts in all 4 gear + reverse. The AC has been recently charged and blows ice cold air and the antenna is also working when you turn on the radio.

Bodywork

The bodywork is far from perfect, though is pretty solid. It retains most of its original paint, but it needs a full respray.
The right fender has been replaced sometime in the past, possibly due to an accident, because the fender is missing the headlight crest and the original spot welds are gone. The crash must have been mild, because the front members remain solid and untouched. The other fender is completely original.
Despite being very solid, the car has some light corrosion in the typical places of the Pagoda, such as the front wheelarches and the trunk (see pictures).

Interior

It is in very good condition, everything is working properly and is it in an overall good shape.
The only bit not working 100% is the indicator stick. It does work, but it doesn’t remain locked into position.
