Is that really a 1983 ?

From the roof, interior, paint... this is 89,90 or so... no way it's 1983

and what kind of motor is in this POS ?

I guess if cheap enough it might be worth it...

Wasn't this posted for sale a few months back, big hole in the bulkhead right hand side under the windscreen hinge?

Pretty sure it is a 1983 frame. Look at the rear axle, one shock forward, one shock backwards. Only 1983 had this set up.
Doors are 86-87, lift up but no capping and roof is even later (, looks like flat and vents in the back) and no alpine windows. Doesn't even come on any 5 door like this.


More like a bunch of parts put on a 1983 frame.
