I'll drive these cars until I die
Radiator, water pump, heater hose replaced.
Sold my previous base Fleetwood with 230000 miles. Still ran strong and used no oil. Being in Wisconsin, the body was giving up. I was also sideswiped by an uninsured driver. I had replaced the cooling system parts on that one at about the same miles as my Brougham. Other parts included a starter and intake manifold gasket. Brake lines and power steering lines rotted out. Car was from Illinois, and had seen winter every year. Was tempted to pull the engine and save it. But this seems unnecessary, as I have had many small block Chevy's, and have never had failures.
Was determined to buy a southern car with no rust, but found the Brougham in Indiana. Grama's car. Super clean. Like new underneath.
The Brougham has heated seats, which I like more than I thought I would. Looked only for 93 with L05. Less power, but less problems than the LT1. MPG 23, base got 25. Lower rear end gear. Oil cooler was leaking when I got the Brougham, which helped lower the price. I have since removed it when I replaced the radiator, as it is unnecessary. Base doesn't have one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
