It has a 8 3/4 posi rear end with 3:23 gears. There is some rust in the trunk pan but it was covered with replacement pan. Body is sound with the exception of the left front fender which has some plastic in it. I have an appraisal, which was done in 2010 by Auto Appraisers Network. It is very detailed with pictures, vin, and vehicle options. I can email it upon request. The car has been sitting in a garage the majority of its time since 2000. The car was parked, with about 15000 miles on a rebuild from Maurer's Performance in Tempe, AZ. The car is running well waiting for someone to finish it.
