I’m not sure what is going on with the shifter. I guess that’s what happens when “function” sucker punches “form.” I do like the LS motor swap and hard top with doors. Your kids would probably love riding in the back in their own little world while the adults talk amongst themselves. The interior needs a little help and so does the paint but overall it looks pretty solid with a cool stance on those big tires.
Find it for sale on Northern Michigan Craigslist.
