Bought in year 2000 after flying to check out car in Spokane Washington. Drove 1,000 miles south to Mountain View California. Drove for 3 years, and overheated head. Pulled head and found that the pistons were not the high compression CS pistons, Engine is not original, but is a 68 block. I decided to rebuild engine and also install an e21 5 speed since 2nd gear was so bad. life and kids intervened and now 5 years later I'm done with the rebuild and trying to figure out the 5 speed driveshaft combo!
