    '84 SVO - PROJECT Car

    All,

    Sometimes life gives you lemons and sometimes lemonade.

    I had bought this car a few months ago as a project, with every intention of a full restoration, however things in life have changed. Unfortunately, this is not the time in my life for a project, and I need to focus my attention elsewhere. I love the SVO/Turbo coupes, and I will own one again.

    The good:
    The car is and SVO I have verified the VIN.
    It does run. I was able to get it started a few weeks ago. Compression between 115 and 135 cold
    Battery tray, battery and battery cables are all brand new.
    New plugs/wires

    The Bad:
    It's rough...
    Most suspension rubber is done.
    A/C, carbon trap, windshield motor, overflow tank, and windshield squirter system were removed previously
    The title is a problem. The car wasn't registered for several years. and the person listed on the title is not who I bought it from. DMV wont register it without a bond or releases from all the owners.
    As shown by the pictures, somebody tried very hard to make this look like a GT. Almost all SVO specific body parts are missing.
    There is rust at the top of the driver C-pillar
    Car seems to be straight, I don't think it has been hit hard in it's life. Drivers side rear quarter seems to have been resprayed at some point, but I don't think the damage was bad.

    I've got about $1000 into it. I'll take $600.

    I'm northern CA, East SF Bay area. It will need to be towed.
