PostSubject: '95 DCM RMW   Fri Feb 13, 2015 12:52 am

Is anyone interested in a '95 DCM RMW for $2,000?

I am thinking of getting rid of mine.  Was my daily driver until I started driving my truck.  I did all of the following to it about one year ago:

New front rotors, pads, bearings, grease caps.
Fixed broken rollers on two windows so they actually work
Installed K&N filter, F-body elbow, "Home Depot" intake w/ Swiss cheese airbox
Deleted air intake "baffle" i.e. "home plate" and also "first base"
New power steering hoses
Cleaned and painted core support
New plugs, wires, high temp wire sleeving
Deleted AIR pump
Removed heat shields from exhaust manifolds; cleaned and painted them
Had three broken bolts in two cylinder heads fixed
Installed new exhaust manifold gaskets, stainless ARP manifold bolts
Degreased/painted parts of engine/accessories as I disassembled stuff for above work
Installed new intake gasket
Replaced ALL old rotten rubber vacuum lines with high temp silicone lines
Disassembled throttle body, cleaned in ultrasonic tank, reassembled with fresh gaskets
Wrapped EGR tube in high temp sleeving to protect back of intake manifold gasket
Sent fuel injectors to Witchhunter for complete rebuilding
Installed new stock replacement cats
After the cats, ran 2.5" mandrel bent Jegs/Heartthrob system
Removed rear bumper cover and bumper to clean, etch, and paint it
Installed new (hard-ish to find) gas tank straps w/new hardware
New fuel filter
New fuel pump and sending unit
New rear springs (Moog CC625 IIRC) and rubber insulators
New Gabriel front and rear shocks
Cleaned and painted swaybar and installed with new poly bushings and endlinks
Cleaned and painted accessible areas of floorpans to kill/retard rust creep
Removed stock air-shock air pump
Replaced oil adapter gasket to stop nasty leak
Oil change/installed new Fumoto drain valve

Has some dents, dings, rust in rear wheel wells (inner, not the lip) and the spare tire well.  At least one bubble in a door jamb.  Belt and wood grain trim has been removed for refinishing, but never refinished.  

Let me know if we should talk.

The snow has melted enough that this could almost be shoveled out and driven away without too much effort, now.

Finally got my butt in gear to rinse it off (it's still dirty) and get some pics.  I have a video of it starting up and driving away, but am having trouble getting that into Photobucket.

One heater core hose broke the other day at the plastic connector in the middle of its length.  I haven't fixed it yet.

Motivated but not desperate to sell it.  Could certainly use the cash for other stuff.















































Once the car turns past the barn, there's nothing left to see but the video keeps rolling until I was able to get back to the camera.

Just to update the price details: if someone offered me $2,000 cash, I'd take it. Maybe it's not worth that to anyone here at this time, but that's my current bottom line. I'd rather keep the car and enjoy it, but don't have time to work on it and could apply the cash to other things.

The car just sits in my driveway. Such a shame. I've been looking at Roadmaster sedans, something ready to go that I can drive right away.

Time and motivation. I don't feel like doing the work it needs to be the kind of car I want it to be to haul my family around.

Out of curiosity, what would it need? I'm still looking for a daily driver family hauler (4 kids) that isn't a Suburban or Excursion. Smile

I'm sorry for being difficult to get a hold of. I've been dealing with a few big ticket life items (none of them good) and just feel busy.

I understand that people want all the details about what the car needs. Especially for folks coming from some distance to see the car, I would want to identify every flaw possible ahead of time. That's a lot to write down for a car this old that has sat for a couple years and which has evidence of unfinished work (like removed trim pieces).

I'd love to transform the car into cash since it's just sitting there. I feel like it's underpriced, based on what I see rotboxes selling for. This also slows down my progress. Writing an essay for a distant buyer and going back and forth to sell the car for $700 less than I paid for it, and losing all the money I put into the extensive list of work I did to it, just isn't that motivating.

I'm sorry if this comes across the wrong way. I don't mean for it to. I will try to find the time to catalog every plus and minus of the car so people can decide if its worth pursuing.

No, no worries, man. Life gets in the way. I hope nothing too serious.....

I didn't mean to be pushy about a list of issues that the car had. If I came across that way, I apologize. I'm basically wondering if it will run/drive well and would take a sticker (if not, what do you think it needs). I'm looking to cart around my family of six and don't really like the idea of a Suburban or Excursion. Yeah, yeah, I know I could get another minivan, but we have one already and I'd like something that might be able to tow a camper or something like that. That being said, I know it's a 20 year old car and will have some issues. From the list of stuff you've done, though, I think you probably have taken care of a lot of them.

And no, your post didn't come off the wrong way at all.

The wagon starts every time that I ask it to and will smoothly idle as long as I let it. I haven't driven it on the road in years, so it's hard for me to say exactly what it might need. I know an exhaust clamp came loose because I can see the camp rattling around on the DS downpipe. The entire exhaust is new, though, as I think is described in my original post.

A previous owner removed the AC compressor, so if you need AC that is going to be an issue.

The woodgrain trim and stainless belt line trim is still off of the car, so if that bothers you from a daily driver standpoint, it will need to be dealt with.

The heater core probably needs to be flushed, as when I was starting it during the winter and letting it run, I observed that the heat was sometimes hot, sometimes just lukewarm.

It probably needs new tires.

I don't think there is much keeping it from being driven immediately, but these are some of the more significant issues that come to mind.

I really need to adjust my settings so that I get an email when someone replies to this thread!

Yes, the car is still here. The new fuel pump seems to be leaking. I'm guessing it's an o-ring issue, but haven't gotten under it to look.

It does run, yes. But, it leaks fuel at the new fuel filter. I'm guessing it's the o-ring. That needs to be fixed before it can be run for any length of time. I started it up about a week and a half ago.

I just got a bad ACDelco fuel filter out of the box. Returned it.
Last year I got a new AC Delco alternator that lasted under 2000 miles, and a Delco plug wire set on which the coil wire lasted 7 months.

I'm kinda shocked this car is still there. Great colors, and not in bad shape for a driver/toy. Hope it gets saved!
