May I introduce to you...Stella's replacement

Well, here she is:
That is Mango green for those curious.
Unknown actual mileage but the engine is tight! I suspect a transplant as the carfax indicated 297K in 2001.

Euros

I pick them up tomorrow. I went for the squarish ones (Bosch) as opposed to the stock look with full glass covers. I'll post a pic once they're installed.

Anybody need a Mushroom colored leather wagon interior? No 3rd seat. I'll post pics in the parts section.

SWEET color. I love that! I would drive that every day.

The engine may be a strong runner even with real high miles, several of ours are.....the real way to check if its good to go is to verify timing chain stretch and make sure it is not in need of replacement.

"Is this one a manual transmission as well? "

Not yet
I need to go through the trans from Stella and make sure it's OK. When the engine absorbed most of the impact, the trans cross member support got ripped from the frame and it tore the mount in two. I want to make sure nothing got bent.
Once that's done, I have everything to do the conversion in about a day.
