Not bad...

a little rusty under there, but it is a 5.7..

Most if that can be cleaned up..

Id put the Formula 350 decals back on if I bought it..

The photo colors are designed to hide how worn that car is.

Re: 89 ASC on ebay:

The one gfx piece looks out of place. I guess they did it to hide the ASC sheet metal brace that runs under the car. I love the simplicity of a black Formula, but I don't like this car at all.

Re: 89 ASC on ebay:

I'm not sure that's an ASC ground FX thing, Id bet a former owner didn't like ASC braces look on the formula and covered it up. This is the only one I've seen like this mine doesn't have factory ground fx on there.
Not a fan of that.

Yeah, I know. I never said it was an ASC part. Again, my guess is that it's supposed to cover the worthless sheetmetal part that ASC riveted on. Obviously added by an a clueless owner.
It's a real shame. Formula's have such a sleek look. But this one doesn't.
