SOLD TO SPROCKET

After a lot of thought, I am putting my OCC up for sale.  It will come with the stock Olds Aluminum wheels (not the Eagle wheels currently on it)
1991  305TBI Towpack with working Posi.
230,000 miles and Trans was rebuilt at 190k.  Wagon can be driven anywhere and would make a great daily/project wagon for someone.  It does have remote start that works great.  All window rollers have been replaced too. 
Asking $1,000
 
What I’ve done to the wagon since I bought it in Oct 2009
·         New Radiator, Upper and Lower Rad Hoses and 160 T-stat
·         New Mini ‘Vette Starter
·         New AC Delco Air Conditioning Compressor (ice cold air J ) 
·         New high output coil
·         New Cap/rotor , plugs and wires
·         New slotted rotors with Hawk pads and all new front wheel bearings (both sides)
·         New front calipers and brake hoses (both sides)
·         New rear wheel cylinders (both sides)
·         Replaced pass rear axle with GM unit and new outer wheel bearings
·         New GM Yoke Kit (tripe seal design)
·         New Fuel Pump
·         New belt and tensioner
·         Grey Cloth Bonneville Seats and Bravada Console/shifter with newish carpet
·         20% Tint

What could be fixed
·         Rear driver’s side exhaust manifold bolt has broken, has a slight leak when starting cold (does go away once warm) 
·         Minor oil leak (I think it could be the oil sensor…but I never have to add oil between changes..just enough to make a couple drops on the ground after a trip)
·         Power locks are not working  (remote start works fine)
·         Driver’s window works, but needs help on humid days.  I can show you the trick in person. 
·         Fuel sending unit has been acting up lately, so gauge can’t be trusted.  Fuel pump is fine.
·         Tailgate lock is stiff and hard to open with the key.  Electric popper works fine and that’s how I usually open the glass anyhow. 
·         Has some little rust spots starting on the roof and right above the cladding on the passenger door.   All the other usual areas are fine (will take lots of pics)  This is a solid wagon by most people’s standards.  Was a NC wagon for most of its life but did spend a couple winters in the North.   Oh, and the annoying driver rear quarter dent.  LOL!
 

I have tons of pictures on my Photobucket Album (will link it shortly)  I can also take pictures or video of anything by request.   I know a lot of you have seen it in person, so hopefully one of you will give this a good home.

One more quick thing...I forgot to mention the front steering pieces are all new ( last summer ) bjoints are not, one has been replaced in the past and the others are still good. Also has newish shocks all around as well.

I do have a folder of all previous work done to the wagon by 1st and 2ond owners too.

Also has a SS front swaybar installed with new links.

Wow, sorry to see you selling that Chris. I have seen the quality work he has done on this car, I really like the front and back bonny seats.

If this car is still available at the end of the day, I will be shocked.

Good luck.

I'm talking to my brother-in-law in Dallas about it right now. He's ready to dump his worn out Expedition and likes my Roady a lot. Got to "sell" the wagon idea to my sister-in-law.

Stay tuned!

Hey Chris, you pretty sure that thing would make it from NC to Texas?? Does the cruise control still work?? Smile

Good Luck Chris!

Guys - I helped Chris with the interior mods and a few other things on this car & I can say it's just an honest driver. Every one already knows, but you can't beat a TBI car for reliability, ease of repairs, and cheap parts! I just bought a 95 C2500 as a work truck for that reason. Chris keeps his cars super clean & well maintained. You won't be disappointed.

Hard to find an LT1 Oldsmobile. Smile I still think the Olds are the smoothest looking of all these cars.

Knew it would go fast!
