History
Purchased new 5 October 1977 from Town & Country Imports, Inc., Rochester, Minnesota, USA for $7,995.
Daily driver including winters in the salt; rust is present and aggressive.
Ran some autocross events in the late 1970s and early 80s (coughed out a chunk of drive shaft "donut" at one of them).
Head gasket replaced 1982.
Laid up with a bad case of "leaky rear-main bearing seal" in 2014. Been working on bringing it back to life ever since.
Presently have the head on the workbench, block on an engine stand, with the driveshaft, intake and exhaust parts in storage.
