Pretty good shape for an 88. How many miles?

Odometer shows 24,500...but there are many tell tale signs that all is not original. 2.9 replaced(and I am replacing it again...bad valve, way bad oil leak), dashboard tampering(screwheads damaged)...

Very seldom will you come across early models that haven't been tampered with. You can only hope the tamperers kind of knew what they were doing. Anyway, if you like tinkering, you can enjoy making things right on it.

I love tinkering w/old vehicles. I am now about 1/2 way to completing body repairs and paint.
