it needs exhaust work there is a leak in the muffler but that will be my excuse for a super 44 and it also needs tierods, basic stuff. all the body mounts are good frame isn't rotting, just has surface rust that i can take care of with a wire wheel

oh and the interior needs a really good cleaning

I'll probably drain all fluids anyway since the rear dif cover is leaking jsut to be safe
