pictures are beyond my ability, I don't own a camera, or even a cell phone. this is definitely the original,unmodified 84 with 1.3 and high gears. when I say I am hoping for 50 + mpg, I am really hoping for the +. with the hills, comes lots of opportunities to coast. just turn the key off. and you can't even tell you are coasting, except that it speeds up . the guy who owned it before me didn't have it very long, but he had the carb rebuilt, major tune up, new exhaust system, new cv joint covers. IT is fairly clean, except the left front fender, which is mostly duct tape painted white. it has 130 thousand miles and runs like a champ. the guy I bought it from complained that after he did all those repairs, it started leaking oil really bad, and his mechanic told him it was either the oil pan gasket or the rear main seal, so he sold it to me for 1700 . I checked the leak, and found the oil filter had been put on too tight. new oil filter, and no more leak.
