The car is by no means perfect or concourse and i will list what i know to be a problem:




•Upon first startup and after a long high rpm deceleration the engine blows some oil smoke through the exhaust from the left hand cylinder bank. It has been diagnosed as the valve stem seals being worn or perished.
•The rear window leaks in where the bonding/sealant has dried up with age (on the right hand side approx 3 inches)
•Small rust bubble on the lower rear quarter panel (passenger side) between the wheel arch edge and the door opening (i have pictured this)
•All 4 wheels could do with a refurbishment as they are all in the same condition as the one wheel pictured.
•Quadrajet 4 barrel carb sometimes bogs down in hot weather when the secondaries open up (i believe the secondary air valves need adjusting so they open more slowly but not 100% sure on this)
•Dash ducting from the blower box to the dash vents is currently missing so no air comes out of the vents on the dash. Heater works fine and blows HOT in winter (matrix was replaced previously) and windscreen defrost ducting is present and correct.
•Drivers electric window fast to go down but slow to go up.

Other areas could also benefit from a bit more TLC than I'm now willing to give it. Namely the interior. Some plastic parts have previously been cracked and rebonded together and the door cards are early 70's style not the later one piece style. Steering wheel also has a chunk missing as per picture. Please ask me any questions, and i am more than happy to show anybody the car in person and i recommend it. I work shifts so just email me and we can sort things out.




No warranty implied - no returns. I recommend coming to see the car if your serious about bidding.

fucked engine in other words
