    This car has been for sale for at least six months or more.Great car specially if it was originally black and that interior combination but he needs to get his facts straight with his write up about the car.

    In addition to some of the facts, the two pics of the engine compartment are from two different cars. Be cautious, guys.

    I don't think it had a 12 bolt originally either.

    It would be a 12 bolt if it was a Canadian built car if original.

    Several more inconsistencies.............no GS emblems on the door panels, very early production model VIN but has seat belt indicator on the dash pad which was a mid year edition. I spoke with the party selling the car this morning and he says he didn't know the two engine photo were different. He is going to text me pics of the engine and the rear pumpkin tonight.

    .........and the emission sticker looks like it says the vehicle conforms to model year 1971????;)

    The engine pics show a 70-71 air cleaner (of course) with aztec gold fender/hood hinge mounts. Washer bottles are different as much as the fan shrouds. Way different cars.

    The emissions sticker (repop?) does say for '71. Cold idle at 1000 with full oil pressure and a cold gage. At least the gas tank is full LOL... Whats the OP after a good trot around town?

    The seller (Tito Alamo) flunked Ingles! ws
