When I purchased the car,in March '90, it was a basic 200 CID, 3 speed manual. The only option that was on the car was an AM radio which didn't work. It didn't even have, nor had the door been drilled, for a passenger side mirrow. I am the third owner. It was an Arizona car and even though it had almost no rust, it had been abused. There was bondo, up to an inch thick in places on every body part except the trunk lid.
