Good news, drained all fluids, replaced starter and she fired right up! Took it for a parking lot cruise and seems to be doing fine. Pulled the carpet today and started to clean it out...

Couldn't stand the 4x4 look, so I put on a 3in block and cut some coils for the weekend!

Go big or go home lol Want to do it right, cut down 9in, nice 4 link, make it handle good....

Powder coated the trunk and hood, also painted the roof since there was some rust showing. Will wrap it soon. Also threw some new plug wires on it, the blue makes at least 10 more HP lol

Great looking and rare little cars these. I am sure you will regret doing any irreversible work to it like tubs.
Enjoy it for what it is :tu:

Trust me if I could fit any decent size tires/wheels on the back I wouldn't, and I don't like the look of flares so mini tub it is. No point of throwing big HP at it if it wont handle it, cruising with 90hp is only so fun for while :mrgreen:

Lovely car. I'd have to agreeit would be a shame to lose too much of its originality. I haven't see one with those front and rear lights before. Case in point I wouldn't be 4g63ing my Sigma if it wasn't for so much of the original drivetrain being sold off before I got her.
Great car though, looking forward to seeing much more.
