Helping a friend out with a vehicle he doesn't have time for. Sounds like second owner, ~40k original miles, Decent condition, runs/drives (working on getting it to pass smog), White with the blue decals, interior in good shape. Really cool little car located in the PNW. Very minimal body rust.
Does the low miles make it desirable? Trying to figure out what to do with it.

Reason: wrong year and doors
Pics are on the way - Also the title doesn't seem to be updating to my edit. Its a 1979 2 door with a 4 speed and the leather seats are in surprisingly good condition although the dash has some cracks at the very top.
Also - Pretty sure I found why it failed emissions. One of the ports on the EGR amplifier/booster broke off and was never repaired/plugged. So vacuum leak (hose went to front side of tb) and the EGR amplifier probably not working correctly.
yeah engine bay or riot...cmon "sellers"
literally one of the critical selling point is "does it run, hows the engine bay"
if its running and not really too rotted i guess $1500-3500 seems reasonable
40,000 original miles is very subjective. could be correct, also could be totally inaccurate.
remember you WILL spend money fixing it to make it a daily
also, going to guess its a 1.6L CIS (unleaded fuel)
so its got a pretty good original engine.
just remember whatever they want for it
consider -$100 broken tail light
-$100 dented fender
-$100 scratched paint on the hood
-$100 front bumper end caps both damaged
-$100 driver side seat missing fold/retractor (2 doors had retractors to get in the backseat)
other notes: missing passenger lower body trim, missing upper body trims....
so any little damages you see, take that off the top value
why? because youre going to spend time and money replacing them.
judging from those rusty 1980 wheels, id say its got a lot of PNW surface rust.
while fairly common for them to rust a little, those seem to have a bit of the "unloved and uncared" rust
personally, after a test drive, i'd buy it in a heartbeat.
