There was a thread on that car a while back. She bought it from a poorly done EBay listing and got the car for a couple grand. Pretty sure it's a 4-spd car as well. I'm sure someone else here will fill in the details better.
You are correct it was bought fairly cheap from a poorly written eBay ad, out of Texas at the time of the EBay auction. Seems like at one point I was thinking between FB and here I saw a comment of no fender tag , but I could not say that for sure.
A neat car , but it would cost more to restore than you could get out of it unless you had all the parts and could do all the work yourself. I guess it would actually come down to what it could be bought for now.
