Update: 7/3/2020 - I'd planned to increase the price of the car to include spare parts, but have thought better of it. If you are interested in purchasing the spare parts with the car, we can talk about it when you make your offer.

All fluids were changed when I first got the car in early 2016 and have been changed on schedule since then. Doesn't burn oil, starts right up strong. I'd planned to keep the car (otherwise I wouldn't have done all the work listed above to make it into a reliable, well-mannered no-excuses car) but now I kinda need the money and the space for other things.
Ask any questions, I'm happy to answer. And yes, even though it's not pictured, I do have the spare tire/wheel and the jack base that holds it in position. Also included: service manual with notes from the previous owner, records from previous owner. Most of my records are electronic, but I can provide what I can cobble together.
I can send a Dropbox link with more photos if you're interested.

The color of this car from the factory was blue and white, but when I got it the car had already been primered and I had two blue cars already, so I went with a different color scheme. The interior, trans, and rear-end came from another parts car, A9UF731849, according to the records I have from the previous owner.
