It is solid for siting around forever. And being from
North east.
Wish I could find the old owner get
Some more history on car.

The underneath doesn't look that bad, and interior parts are definitely attainable- I'd sell you a pretty nice set of front seats but shipping would murder you :LOL:

Savable. I would drain the gas tank, replace any SS hose, replace fuel filter, clean the injectors and do an oil change. Looks like a kevlar timing belt...so that should be fine. Just basic maintenance. Has good parts in there. Previous owner may have passed, gone to prison or who knows what.

I did change oil in it. Got set of injectors out of my eclipse to put in it.
I need to find set of 550s for my vpc chip that’s in ecu.
I do have new brake lines coming for hose and all. And also got new rear brake rotors and pads for it.
Also got some bushing to install in. And also some new parts for rear controls arms. I had sent to me to test fit for production.

Anyone know where to get windshield for car? It leaks on mine.

The passenger is great, I think the driver has a small separation, but I'm sure an upholstery shop could easily sort it out as the leather is in good shape. They're in my garage attic, I'll see if I can get pics soon.

That said, I don't even know how I'd ship them from WA 😆

Got the car today to my house to start working on it.
Started taking seats out of car.
Passenger seat is rotted badly.
Had to heat all the bolts with my mini inductor. To get them to come free.
Rear back seat kept falling apart when I touched it.
Also got rear arms torn out today to install
New bushings and to add something special to them that got sent to me for rear trailing arms.
Just got source some ball joints for them still.
Surprisingly ever bolt underneath came out easily.

Almost as if the windows were left open for awhile? That corrosion inside doesn't happen normally.

Yeah, given how good the underside looks, I'm guessing it's a bad sunroof/door/window seal and a lot of water being in the car for a while. Based on the trunk, I'm guessing that seal isn't great either.
I've thought about replacing mine, but I'm pretty sure they're NLA. I just keep it in the garage anyway so 🤞

Any water damage. That I see is looking to be on the right side of car. From stains I see and all.
Looks like the trunk might get water coming from it. But seal looks good. From what I seen
I found new sunroof seal for it. And order that.
I have windshield getting out in week.
Surprisingly safe light says they can get windshield for car. So I order that. They said it take week to get in

Considering the rust/cancer of the seat rails and lack of rust in other areas. It does look like an interior leak. The dried out cracked leather is the worst I've seen. The trunk has a little surface rust, but the fuel pump cover doesn't look that bad at all.

Yes I would agree on interior leak for sure.
Top of fuel pump looks amazing studs all look good and should come apart.
I am tryin to find interior for it. But can’t find anything local to me.
