Pics will be up soon...Bought this as a project jsut dont have time for it. Has exhaust leak...Flowmaster dual chamber muffler, and pipes from cat back. Has been on for a while and has some rust spots. Also has mid pipe from heads to cat, Like new.


The good
Clear Title
Starts right up and runs and Shifts great for its age.
79k Original miles
400 Cubic Inch V8
Turbo 400 transmission
Original Honeycomb wheels and tires.
The interior is Near Mint. Arm rest needs to be replaced. Seats are Great along with dash, Completely original.
Brakes are fine.
Drives nice for age. Is driveable.


The bad.
Body is pretty solid for age. No dents. Straight body. Has rust on bottom of doors, and some facial on roof. Needs body work, and paint and would be fine.
Needs tune up
Needs exhaust
Rear wuarter needs some work, Can get whole new quarter for 350.00

Other than that not much to say about it. For being 30 years old the car runs Very good. . Dont expect a perfect car it does need work. Motor is strong and car is pretty fast also. Shifts nice. tires have great tread left may be dry rotted car has been sitting for a while.

Bump for a kick *** car!

Wish you were close to me. Id snatch it up in a heart beat.
Price is right just for that motor and trans.

if i had the money i would love to have it ... but the stuff i got to trade is no where near the whole price of that car and i know you probably want cash .... i thought about doing that setup in a old 71 monte carlo ....

Yeah the car is pretty powerful..And the reason I got it really was because it had that motor and trans in it. I already have everything to rebuild the motor....But jsut dont feel like takeing it on at this time.

And another reason was the interiot, It is **** near mint! Completely original, and the seats and dash look brand new. Im gonna take more pics tomorrow, I ended up cleaning the inseide up a little today didnt have much else to do, I might bondo some of the small spots sand and prep it for paint....And if I cant sell I will cut the rear quarter out and replace it....Id love to keep the car, but body work and paint are gonna rip me.

Yeah I dont like bondo to much, Its like a cover up. So I will only use little amounts of it...I could prob do the rear quarter and get it lookngi right, but to have it that way I would feel safe would be to cut it out and replace it.
