Beyond slight rust and body damage! It looks like it was in a demo durby! It has low miles due to it’s odometer has rolled over and broke. Took it for a “test drive” couldn’t get it started with out a push and a screw driver. The brakes where bad and had a hard time stoping. Told the guy no way I’d take if for $800. I offered him $100 he took it no question. Well right after he left I tried starting it got it to turn over a bit and “BANG BAM!” It threw a rod..... Now it’s on a flat bed to the shop or junk yard.
