History
I purchased this car in the early nineties with 80k orig miles for like $2k. It was a very nice, clean and orig Tucson car with zero rust. It orig came with a 307 and 3spd man on the col. I drove it like this for a couple of years, rebuilt the heads thru some headers on it. I put in a mild 350, Th350 combo and drove it like that for a few years until 2 years ago I put in the ZZ3 350 and the TCI Th350 combo.
