picking up a 1979 99 turbo

I am picking up a 1979 99 turbo it is burgandy and needs a little front end work. The guy has a 99 ems which he is throwing in for a parts car. The cars have no rot at all. Best part is they are $500 specials

Nice a Cardinal Red one.

One of the parts you will want to check, mattering on how bad the front end damage is, is see if the radiator fans are still good. Here we only got 99 Turbos in 1978 and they had special fans that mounted in front of the radiator. The fans are rare as hens teeth.
