Nice, beautiful looking car, was thinking strongly about a minerva blue car back when I was looking originally but wanted a manual.

Mine has narrow slotted vents, would these be correct?



I'm glad it was brought to light...that the steel gas cap is correct...it was on my list for replacement.

Three piece cat, crossmember and chrome lock set...check.

#0613 did not have a three piece cat or narrow slotted vents, but had the rest.

Dash looks to have some cracks. Seats look good though. It looks like the left rear brake backing plate is missing, too. They must get messed up while getting off a bad rotor-parking brake shoe hung up situation or something. #0613 were missing.

I'd like the battery box bolt down type cover (not hinged door) and the spare...please...and free shipping since were dreaming and all.

Keeper. Refurb time.

NO PARTING!

Figure the parts value and drop 10%, then post it on up. We are all waiting with baited breath.

Saved? It looks great!!!!

The the exhaust to cat pipes are a new one to me.

The center vent is the early version.

The rest looks like standard stuff (including the chrome door lock surrounds).
