Recent mechanical work (within last 6 months or so):
New clutch, new rear brakes, new fuel pump, battery & transmission work. Needs new ball joints.
Car starts & runs well.
Previous alterations (by others): A radio was installed in place of the ashtray, and the rear shelf was cut to accommodate future speakers for the radio.
