As a totally biased Calypsorot / tan interior vert, buy it. That is mint. I would swap it to 5 speed, but damn that's clean.

I basically bought the same exact car 5 years ago for $3500, but metal bumper and basket weave wheels.

If it's got a working power top, it's a rare find and ell worth the price...again, provided it passes a close up inspection.

Sweet ride!

Figure $1,500 in parts to do the 5-speed swap. Labor at my local shop was 18 hours at $75 an hour $1,350. Not cheap, but it drives like a different car now. Wouldn’t go back to an automatic.

Ditto times 1000. Calypso is super rare beautiful and highly desirable for a lot of people. I get buy offers all the time for mine.

You will not find a better deal in a car like that, with that color. The rest is details
