I will be constantly editing this as I remember exactly what Ive done. plz leave contact num. for questions. Connecticut doesnt issue titles for cars over 20 years old. You will receive the title from previous owner that DMV gave me back, my current registration and a bill of sale. Please bring any other required documents from your states DMV. If you come during CT DMV hours (tues to fri 9 to 4, sat 9 to 11) I will help you get transport plates to drive car back to your home. you just need insurance on the car and i believe like 14 bucks.
Everything works except passenger climate switch. And i mean everything. No dash warning lights and all electronics work. Every light bulb works. Spent a lot of time replacing every bulb, even the soldered on ones. AC is ice cold, heat is hot. Could get in this car and drive coast to coast. Title is clear. Never rebuilt or salvaged. Did not see any rot anywhere. Just surface rust on untreated metal parts. Registered and still driven. Mileage will go up. 16MPG around town and 26 on hwy. Lots of power for a 2 ton car. Drives comfortably at 65 on cruise. No bangs, pops, rattles, or other noises associate with old cars. No leaks of any fluids! 20 Gallon tank. I will also perform an oil change prior to delivery, so youll be good for another 3000 miles. Just rotated tires at 148k exactly.
Got this car from a friends neighbor as a project. Did a lot of work to it and now im bored with it. this is my 53rd car. Looking for a 54th. below is a list of all the things ive purchased. The engine is PERFECT. Did not lose a drop of oil in 3000 miles. The GM 3.8 is one of the best engines ever produced, some achieving 300k and more. The transmission has always been serviced (records going back some time) and has clean red fluid. Shifts perfectly. This car needs nothing for the road. Ive done everything. Planned on taking off landau top and having car wrapped.
Now the bad. Previous owner hit something in the front right corner. I replaced the turn light, wheel trim and bumper brackets. Bumper has a defect and missing paint. The body has some dings that wont show up in photos. Paint has swirls and fine scratches throughout. From far, it doesnt look bad. Havent tried to buff the car because Ive been too busy with the mechanical bits. The speakers are shot and will need to be replaced. Rears are 6X9 and fronts are 5.25. (antenna works, just disconnected) The passenger climate switch doesnt do anything that I can notice. The rear ABS wire will need to be replaced at some point. I spliced it. works fine, and costs 130 new. The windshield has a crack on lower right side. half moon shape. also has a bullseye. I filled both so they wont grow. CT doesnt inspect, so didnt concern me. Missing passenger floor mat. Driver side area where foot rests has a hole worn through carpet and foam, but floor mat is fine and hides it. Landau top piping around rear window is long gone. Glued material down around most of the window. Will try and take photos of all the areas that need attention.
A list of what ive done (Prices below):ABS/Traction Pump, All new belts and pulleys, new Supercharger coupler & fluid swap, all vacuum hoses with silicone, new Crank sensor, rebuilt radio (cassette, CD, steering wheel controls and all lights work), rebuilt climate control module, swapped passenger seat interior frame (will come with extra matching factory skin), Replaced the steering column with a unit from a 99 (doesnt move!) and will come with extra steering wheel, NEW wiper switch, new turn cancel cam, new key and remote (2 sets of keys), new horns, new rear shocks, new leveling pump and pump hoses, new alternator, both new window motors, EVERY component NEW in cooling system: core, hoses, thermostat, pump, radiator (just changed coolant with GM DexCool) and NEW coolant level sensor, diamond fire spark plugs (burns fuel better).
The car will come with all new front struts, ball joints, tie rods, sway links and strut boots. Was going to change them but doesnt need them right now. Will also come with a few sets of HID bulb and ballasts, set of LED and a set of Halogen. Also included are the old belts and pulleys for reference, A pair of new muffler hangers, a few brand new oil filters,
The previous owner replaced tires about 5000k miles ago. theyve got a lot of life left. He also replaced spark plug wires, valve cover gaskets and a few other things. Ive got lots of receipts.
