Picked me up a 77' liftback yesterday. 500 bucks! its got alot of rust on body parts that are removable, but almost none on the actual body and engine bay. Nothing I cant sort out. well i need a new hatch for sure. besides that is pretty sexxay and needs some lovin, which i will provide much of. The engine overheats i was told. but it has a new carb, trd cam, header, and valve work. should be peppy when i get it fixed. More on Wednesday. here are some pics.

I think Atlanta.

BTW.. that thing looks crazy rusty on the bottom from the 1st pic.

Do you need to borrow my rust-busting gear? LOL Better get some POR-15.

It's actually not THAT bad.... i think it's way less rusty than your penis! :hehe:


Congrats Andy! That thing looks like a nice fun project. I wouldn't mind finding one in that condition, myself. :D

Yeah, I looked at the CL posting I was eyeballing... and the car has the same flaked off paint on the fenders... I can see why the poster never showed the back of the car very well... There is a 77 in a local junkyard, not sure if it's coupe or liftback though.
