That explains the low mileage.

I would suspect cracked vacuum lines from age and heat. Give them a good inspection.

Please check the electrical connector at the MAP sensor behind the SC (little rectangular box mounted to a metal bracket coming off the rear cylinder heat above the rear center cylinder). Also carefully inspect the vacuum line going to it.

With the car running, make sure you have 5v going to one of the pins on the MAP sensor connector. If all that looks good, you may have a problem in your cluster.

If that'* your only problem, you have found a gem of a Bonne.

Don't worry about the factory gauge. Buy a stand alone mechanical boost gauge and plumb it into a vacuum line for a much more reliable and accurate reading.
