I posted a feeler ad last year and I finally have the time to deal with selling the car. The car is in excellent mechanical shape but cosmetically needs some work (paint is not great in some areas & a few spots of rust but it isn't anything that can't be dealt with fairly easily). It's a single owner car, purchased new and has 204K miles on it and was garage kept from the mid 80's till 2016 and was covered after that. The car started up beautifully after not being run for years and has a very nice and steady idle.

The engine (B20D) was rebuilt at 144K miles, bored out to 2.2L and has a rebuilt M41 transmission w/ electric overdrive (transmission & clutch rebuilt 10K miles ago).

There are also a TON of extra parts, probably enough to rebuild the car once over again 1-2x and many of the additional parts have already been rebuilt themselves.

The car is located in N Lancaster County, PA which is about 1 1/4 hours from Philadelphia or Baltimore and about 25 mins from Harrisburg.

I have about 170+ pics of the car, it hasn't been washed or cleaned up so it doesn't look it's best so keep that in mind. IDK how to list all the pics but I'll try to find a way to upload them to a site so they can be browsed.

Here's a list of what's been done to the car and all the extra parts that I have.
