Just picked this up for my dad. He bought one new in 79. Same model year and color. He's is excited!

That's awesome! Much cooler than my father's first "new" car: a 1986 Ford Escort hatch. (I hated that car when I was young, though I am admittedly pretty nostalgic about it these days.)

Very cool indeed! Almost tempted to say ice-cool... :lol: :lol:
What does it need and what are your plans for it?

Sorry for the delay. I had to pull the fuel tank and leave it with a radiator shop for about a month--full of the worst smelling stuff I've ever seen in a car! Tank came back clean, new fuel pump and cleaned the carb and she fired right up! My dad is taking it as a retirement project, so he'll come get it in a few weeks to take back to his house (about 120 miles away). I'll try to keep posting as he sends me updates. Thanks!
