PostSubject: Thinning the herd-94 DCM woody RMW   Fri Apr 13, 2012 11:10 am

Spring is here and its time for me to sell off my winter beater that I bought for the winter that never happened. This a 94 DCM woody Roadmaster over tan leather with 168k on it and the all important tow pack. Mechanically it needs nothing.

The Good:
Engine looks and feels like its been rebuilt: new bolts on the heads and has more power than my wagons with less miles
4l60e shifts perfectly
Tow package with mech fan
Steering wheel audio controls added by me and 95/96 radio (cassette doesn't work)
Keyless entry
Twilight
Class I 1-1/4" hitch with wiring
Cold AC
Hot heat
Both power seats work
New O2s (delphi)
New intake gaskets
Tires have about 50% tread
New front brakes and rotors last summer
Very minimal rust

The bad:
Temp gauge doesn't work
small rust spot in spare tire well, crusty on edge of DS quarter. All very fixable.
Rims are ugly, clear coat failed and corrosion is showing
Paint needs a good polishing. Had been sitting unwashed for a while when I bought it, still has spots on the paint. Clear on bumper is gone. big scratch on hood. Dent in front stainless
Leaks from roof somewhere. It runs down the PS C pillar and had pooled up in the rear floor pan. The PO never did anything about it and it rotted the pan out. I had a stainless plate welded in to fix it and drilled drain holes.
Interior needs to be cleaned. The PO had a dog and you can tell. I cleaned a lot of hair out and shampooed the front of the car. The cargo area is dirty and beat up. The 3rd row seat is missing but I plan to put one in from my parts wagon.
Needs a front end alignment

If I can think of anything else I'll post it. I'm asking $1500 OBO for the car. Has a signed NY title. With a bit of work this can be a really nice car. I'll get some pics of it Sunday.

I've seen this car in person it is REALLY clean for a NY car. Tank straps, rockers and quarters (sans small tire well hole) are all good. Interior is pretty nice for being a "dog car". I wouldn't hesitate to buy this car right now.

Thanks for the support Very Happy

I tend to over exaggerate issues with cars because I hate unwelcome surprises when it comes to these things. On the NY part, it was only in NY for a few months, it was originally from Meriden CT according to the history report.

I was going to say. I don't remember half the stuff you listed as being like that. Hell, I thought the interior looked great! Laughing

Here's a ton of pics of the car. Any questions please ask. I'll get some pics of the underside this week once I get it up on the ramps.

Still love that color. Hope the car finds a good home.

Did you ever post a step-by-step on doing the steering wheel controls? Would like to read that.

Good luck on the sale!

I do too, DCM is my favorite as well. I never did a write up for the controls, I followed a write up on the SS forum for the monte carlo one and made an adapter to go from the 94-95 style harness. If I get some time I'll at least get some pics of the adapter.

Down to $1400. Fixed the exhaust leak, had to replace a muffler.

Wow that was fast,anybody we know David?

Sadly, no. It is going to a good home though. This older lady stopped by and told me about the 94 LDM one she had for 15 years that got totaled in January. It was kind of odd seeing an old lady looking over the car for the common rust issues and usual BS problems we all know lol.

I assume we are talking about someone in her forties?

LOL, I have a drive shaft laying around, much sturdier than a stick Laughing

I don't think she will join the forum, her son found it on craigslist for her, she doesn't use a computer that much. I dropped it off the other day, sad to see it go but I know its in good hands. When I pulled into the driveway there was a tan cargo cover and original floor mats waiting for it from her wrecked wagon. I programmed her old remote to work on the car, mentioned wagonfest and was on my way.
