My first couple cars were crushed.....nobody else drove them when I was done. One was severely rusted and the other two were totaled.

I knew where there was a nice tempest back then....but I couldn't afford to buy it off the guy.

Wow! Check out this California 1-Owner 50k org mile Factory v8 Diesel with Factory 5-speed manual transmission Cutlass Coupe! We did some research and believe approx less than 20 were produced from factory set up like this one and that was 32 years ago we wonder how many are left? Factory bucket seats, dual exaust, dual batterys, dog dish hubcaps with color keyed wheels, factory no ac and much more! This car cranks excellent and runs & drives very nice! Interior looks excellent for an unrestored original! This is a rust free Ca car and has had one driver quality repaint! This is a piece of GM history and bet you will not come across another and time soon! In and out this is a very nice turn key original 32 year old car it has not been restored it has had years of love and is a super nice survivor!

Beware the inline overhead cam 6. I knew a number of people that had them and they all cussed them. I don't remember just what the problems were but I know everyone was unhappy with them.

This engine was the brain child of John Z. DeLorean.
