After a 17yr hiatus from owning my last 2002 (sold on 02/02/02)...I finally obtained a project car. A 1976 2002 - Pastellblau, 4spd, Behr A/C ...found in SC....Most all original paperwork from purchase included....History from Dealer in Tennessee....1st Owner in Atlanta, GA. Can a high travel lifestyle enable me to resurrect this vehicle?..Let's see!!
Many challenges....the name "FLEX" Comes from various patches of FLEXSEAL from previous owner to patch holes in roof (sunroof plugged/leaked/frame rusted) Amazingly that's the only major rust ..the framerails, floorpans, shocktowers, rockers are rust free. The car was originally an Automatic...converted at some point to a Manual 4spd. Car barely runs...body & Interior needs full resto...yeah...probably more of a project than I should take on...but i'm game...in theory.
Today (02/02/19)...I pull the car from the trailer....can't crank it for more than 5 seconds....clutch is inoperable..and can't make it rolling into the garage....well...off to a start of sorts...hahah
