    So a month ago I was able to rescue this ‘84 out of the Mojave Desert, pretty much sight unseen. I sent a family friend out to the desert to take a look, and he gave it a thumbs up.

    It’s proving to be a good buy, there’s absolutely 0 rust and minimal dents and dings on the body.

    Been cleaning up the interior. This includes a new wiring harness for the 22RE swap. The previous owner put a 20R in at some point and decided to splice the harness about 50 times.

    The paint cleaned up nicely for siting in the Mojave sun Since 2002.
