I contacted the seller. He is very accommodating and we talked about the car via phone and he sent me videos and photos. It appears to be a very solid car. Some changes made to it over time and a few minor issues that someone could resolve if they wanted to. He’s owned it for less than a year.

 

The radiator has been replaced with an aftermarket unit, generator changed over to alternator, electric fuel pump added, peddle start disabled and now starts by switch under the dash. A head unit has been added in console unit sitting on transmission hump and exterior speakers placed on the rear package tray.

 

According to seller, drivers side exhaust manifold has a crack, rear driver’s side window regulator is sticking, and power seats aren’t working.

 

Based on what I could see from videos, it starts right up, sounds good and looks good. Just not the right car for me.

I remember this car for sale a few years ago for about half this money.  Someone, probably whomever he got it from, made a quick profit.  However, it will be a tough sell even being a decent car.  Super 4 doors just don't hold the value.  If I remember correctly the car has incorrect upholstery as well, but didn't look out of place.  I think the paint color (at least on lower) may have been changed too.
