To be honest. A bit of trickery here on my part, it came in for a heater core. Not a no start lol.... that said, the front seat was covered in wiring and old taxi equipment, smelled like cat piss, and also has alllll the wiring for speakers coming OUT OF THE DOOR UNDER THE HOOD instead of through the firewall..... it’s no longer with us anymore... haha
