Has anyone seen this Spirit Limited on Craigslist? I can't remember ever seeing one of these. This is one rare Spirit! Looks to be in okay condition.

I have saw two in my life and both were V8's. And one was four speed. One was two tone maroon with tan inside. Cool cars. They rough shape in salvage yard. Shame. One I went and bought car and stripped out car. Since was so cool. Back in 1987. Lol.  I thought at that time they had be pricey cars then.

As you long as you can get a valid Bill of Sale (Ad says title missing.) and the VIN passes a check with DMV or CHP you should be able to get a title.  CA is easier that a lot of states.  The registration fees, including penalties for late registration just went up in CA so if it is still on the registry (registered less than five years ago) you will pay dearly for that title and registration.  1982 was in the midst of the "vacuum hoses control all emissions" era so getting it smogged could be a challenge. It would be easier getting it smogged outside of the LA basin though.  That interior is starting to look tired.  Those leather front seats would consume your lunch money for a long time to get redone.  Joe

That guy may end up on that tv program Lord of the Car Hoard  where the famous Rick Dore and his crew cleans out the yard and builds one killer car .

The ad is incorrect, Its a 1980 not 1982. Look at the VIN and door tag. You could only get a limited Spirit in 1979 & 1980. Good news is 1980 was the last year for metal valve cover so it dosn't have that junky plastic valve cover.
