Wow ! Amazing to see they actually exported this to the US. This is the exact same models as the Dacia 1300 "Break" (aka station-wagon)

In Romania you can find literally thousands of these because it was the ONLY car sold to Romanians in communist times (it was built locally).

I didn't think they made it to the USA as well My father had a sedan version , it was able of 35-40 MPG but they were notorious for unreliability of the engine. Maybe the US version was upgraded.

Good luck with your sale, i hope someone restores it
