cylinder head is being rebuilt January 2008.
car is up and running as of Feb 15, 2008. Waterpump leaks a little now, but should seal up as miles are put on it. March 2, 2008: minimal water pump leak now... more miles=should get better!

needs minor body work in future

needs full repaint in future

headliner bad, interior good, later adjustable headrest seats of same pattern.
Plan to keep very close to original specification. Have 5 original Pirelli tires and extra Inca wheels for "show" use.
has 5 speed transmission


Northwest car from new, I am about the 5th owner.
paid only $200.00 as a non running basket case with blown cylinder head. I allready had a spare head to build up for this car, and did a water pump rebuild just for insurance...(had the stronger 8 cog style from a '75 99 allready installed, so should have a long life there).
Have owned several of these models over the years and just can't seem to get them out of my system...!

Personal Notes

One minor part I do need is the front "TURBO" emblem that is mounted on the grille....if anybody has one, I would gladly like to buy one !!
Still looking for front grille TURBO emblem as of March 2, 2008.
Thanks Kurt for this registry for such a unique and interesting car....
