This car was picked up at the factory and brought to the US in 1985. It has 96k miles with a 5 speed manual. It spent years on blocks in the rain. Not a lot of the electronic stuff works. There's no A/C or cruise control. Since I bought it I replaced the climate control fan so the heater works. The story I heard is that a previous owner ran it out of oil and now the valve guides leak. One plug has been heavily caked with burned oil and it smokes. Compression is normal for all cylinders and it has lots of power.
