fixing this car at the moment. to be continued....
i just bought this car back not running and it looks like it is going to be more work than its worth to me. i owned this car years ago and put lots of love into it then, but time takes a toll. its to cold to work on this car. a leak down test shows the valves are leaking, and 0-70-0-90 compression. i will confirm tomorrow if it jumped timing or not when its not as cold. the engine install is not the most professional, bolts are missing here and there. its def a project car worth saving. i has some surface rust underneath that can easily be por 15 painted now to stop it, overall the body has no rust except on the rear quarter where it was dented, no rot that i can find also. clear coat is peeling.
it has some nice extras on it, what looks like a ETS Fmic with Tial bov, 16g turbo, rc 550cc injectors, Gm Maf translator, 4 bolt rear and some gauges, braided brake lines, sloted rotors, nice tires, ARP Head studs currently installed upside down which i believe caused a head gasket issue. so now no compression.
I paid $1500 and i think its worth that and more just not right now to me with no garage. come save it like i planned.
