Synthetic transmission fluid in box
New brake pads AND rotors in box
Replacement fuel door, side mirror covers
A bunch of backup gaskets for engine and AC system
Loads of additional parts not used during the rebuild, extra intake manifold, that sort of stuff.

This is my weekend fixer-upper project. I bought it with a useless engine and spent 6 months and about $5k rebuilding it myself with great care. The internals are spotless and free from sludge. The only place where I may have overlooked is in adjusting the valve heights. I bought the tool for it but I'm moving out of state and have no more time to invest in this labor of love. Unfortunately, I won't be able to bring the car with me. I'll be glad to show you everything I know about it. Right now though, I would have no hesitation to put miles on it as it is.
