Don't get you're hopes up it's a four door anyways it is from 1978 and does needs the brakes repaired the windshield needs replaced also it runs and drives fine just got to find the nearest tree to stop.
It has a 250 1 barrel I6 with a 3 speed manual on the column no a/c no power steering or brakes. Should be a fun winter beater once i get it repaired.

Three on the tree baby!

Usually first is toward you and down, second us up and away from you. Third is away from you and down. Reverse is toward you and up.

Thought these things looked old by the time the first Citation came out, but you know what? The design actually aged nicely. Like that blue!

It's a really nice looking ride! Love that I6 and 3 on the tree. You can get a gallon of Corroseal rust converter for about $50 and coat/ spray into rusted areas if so inclined. A gallon covers about 200 or so sq. feet. https://www.amazon.com/Corroseal-Water-B...ASIN=B00RYRJGXO

Nice. I had a few cars, a van, and a Suburban with a three on the tree. It can be converted to a floor shifter. I know a lot of the younger generation don't know how to drive it, but what surprises me is how many people that don't know how to drive a stick!

Neato. Most of the four door novas of all vintage were cannibalized to build two door novas and camaros. Nice to see a running and driving example that will be left intact.
