No pictures??? No description of what it has and what you can see it needs? Shocked Welcome to AZBAJA. Here in Phoenix a pre 67 is a plus becuase there is no emissions requirement. It also has a link pin front end. In the rear the original transaxle had narrow splins so spinning a drum is easier to do than with the later long spline axles. Another negative is the swing axle has limited travel and require converting to a IRS to get more.

Yeah just make sure the car isnt rusted to crap, check the floor boards I mean thats pretty much it, everything else as mentioned above is all to preference. The swing axle is limited in what you can do to it as you can only get som much travel out of it, plus its foot print when lifted is messed up cause it actually causes the camber to be way off pulling the tops of the wheels out \__/ to kinda look like that. Basically your whole rear tires wont touch the ground, plus it doesnt handle as well coming out of tight corners, the IRS cures that problem and really isnt an expensive mod, Im actually working on doing the same to my car. Other than that, just make sure as much of the car works as possible, unless you dont mind doind a lot of wiring due to the fact that people tend to cut up the harnesses a lot not knowing what they are actually doing
