Cool! Can you make out the year sticker on the license plate? I can't quite see it. Wonder when it last ran? Neat car!

The stickers read "DEC" and "80." So, it was put out to pasture sometime between December 1979 and 80.

Pretty simple engine. If it turns over it cant be that hard to get it running. If you aren't too far away you dont have much to lose. If it were a little closer to me I would be tempted. It would be tough to make it a show piece but if your looking for something to play with on weekends, with a Maaco type paint job you could have less than $1000-$1500 in it when done and turn alot of heads for your effort.
