More power than a Euro Daytona. Rebuilt transaxle with new syncros and input shaft. Runs better than new, idles great, no cam gear or valve train noise. Pulls very strongly to redline. Near perfect new syncros that go into 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear cold without a problem! Cromodora mag wheels. Correct 215/70 X 15 Michelin XWX tires and Michelin XWX spare. Nice body, panel fit, exterior chrome and stainless trim. Excellent window glass. Nice mouse-fur on the dash. Engine compartment nicely detailed, hood struts work perfectly, nice original hood pad. Absolutely mechanically superb with everything working as it should. Dual (front and rear) A/C. Easily the best running and driving Daytona we have seen in many years.
