EBAY AUCTION ENDS JULY 13, 2012


SAME OWNER SINCE 1988

This car drives great, but needs some work. Due to a disabling injury it is up for sale.

I purchased this car in 1988 with 87k miles. Around 8 years ago, I decided to invest in a bunch of needed repairs for a fun and safe daily commute to work. The car has been kept as complete and original as possible, and is truely a blast to drive. I spent a few thousand fitting a correct 390 crate engine with a low-end-touque RV cam, and getting the car roadworthy. I also added new 9" posi-traction 3.70:1 third member rear differential, making this car perform the way they all should have! The brakes where completely overhauled, and today work like new. A lot of work went into the steering system, as did the suspension. All 4 springs had been replaced back in the mid '90s and still hold their stance firm.
The black with wood-grain-trim interior is in good over-all condition with no cracks in the dash, and with all of the original instrumentation working. The door panels are in average condition showing some wear on the driver's side. The front passenger seat sits low from missing seat-foam, while the very well functioning power driver’s seat has been partially recovered (lower section), and refoamed; and it now has a 5" inch split in the middle of the backrest. The other seats are original, and in great shape with no wear showing.
The passenger side of the car looks great from 20 feet with only a few scratches and paint dings, but on the other side, the driver's door has been refitted with a solid replacement and the driver's fender has a basketball sized dent. The door seals and trunk seal had been redone in the mid '90s, but the passenger door and trunk seal both leaked rusting a whole in the front passenger floor, and another small hole in the trunk. There are several surface rust spots on the trunk-lid, and the typical areas with rust-bubbling around the lower fender wells.
