nice-looking vehicle... too bad it's a 2WD

the listing does not specify if it's a manual or automatic transmission

I really like that forest green color!

it does not appear wrecked, that points to serious mechanical problem. Well, the carb might be worth grabbing.

Vehicle was auctioned (or failed to sell) I should say recently by a Portland area tower (Speed's supertow)

Concluded auction link below: Appears to be a manual

that listing says "non-runner".

that is actually in decent shape, nice seats too. something expensive failed, and they gave it up for the scrap yard. the 2wd is not worth much, it is just another old econobox. best value is in the parts to keep the 4wd ones running. looks like no rust, fenders and hood should be decent.
