The interior on that looks exactly like my 85 GLH Turbo.

That interior looks clean, doesn’t it?

When I started autocrossing, I met a dude with an H Stock Omni/Horizon that was also white over red. Can’t recall his name, though.

If it's as clean as it looks and has a GLH rear beam I'd say its a decent deal

I'd even be interested if it was a bone stock Omni if the interior was that good.

I got one from my grandfather when he stopped driving.  A white over red, like the one for sale, auto.  I actually liked it for what it was.  My brother ended up with it and ran it into the ground unfortunately.

I just noticed the A-pillar gauges in the color-matched pod.

Must have 5 lug swapped it too. They did some quality work on this.

In reply to crankwalk (Forum Supporter) :

It does look rather put together.

My daughter just wrecked her Mini and I have to buy her another car.  I should buy this, and tell her it was all I could afford for now.  She would be so pissed until she actually drove it.
