Absolutely rust-free car. All fluid changes done within the last 3 months. The front has disc brakes and can fit 12 or 13 inch tires/wheels. Currently on 12 inch minilite wheels. Interior is also all new including headliner. The car fires right up even after sitting for a while. It idles steady, runs strong and handles well. Some minor glitches are : The passenger door cannot be locked from the outside/the oil temperature gauge stopped working and it may need a tune-up for peak performance. Car comes with a custom car cover, spare tire, jack and some miscellaneous parts . I am selling the car only because I need the space in my garage for my newly acquired Cortina GT Mk 2.
