Description:

I have taken care of her until recently. It needs new rear wheel bearings, front and rear alignment, a tire, and probably a battery before it can be driven. It is solid and runs well. Within the recent past, I have replaced the water pump, front wheel bearings, harmonic balancer (with new pick up and advancing bracket). The paint has clear coat coming off, inside front door handles broken, air conditioner not working, and automatic rear deck lid not working (new supports in trunk). It has a slow leak from the cam cover getting oil on the exhaust manifold. I have all the gaskets needed to replace, a set of spark plugs, and two new O2 sensors in the trunk, (with instructions for replacing gasket). It has been waiting for repair for over a year now, and I just can't get to it. It does start immediately with a jump and idles nicely. You will need to tow/pick up. It was a Florida car most of its life, I believe. It is clean and solid underneath, to the best of my knowledge.

Willtyndal,
Hopefully you can sell the car intact and be done with it. Still looks attractive and has some life left, given a little work. But if you decide to keep it and part out, I would be interested in a 20-spoke wheel or two, if they are still in good condition. They look good in these pictures. Thank you.

SleekJag12,
Thank you for your interest! I am trying to sell it whole. If I can't, I can send you pictures of the wheel(s). I'm not in a good position to part it out, but I will give someone a good deal to take her whole.
