The driver side floorboard is starting to rust though. Replaced broken horn with a air compressor horn...HONK!
Repaired small leak in radiator with leak sealer goop.
Headliner gone. Taped the cracked, brittle steering wheel with silver duct tape... looks space age now.
The rear station wagon door window doesn't go down (half inch). The broken window rubber has allowed rain to rust the motor or gears is my guess. I'll try to fix with liquid wrench and then apply grease.
Replaced rotors immediately, pretty cheap fix of $70.00. The interior is filthy and smells of old man. Seats are covered with sofa cushion covers.
The springs need to be replaced soon.
The car is three tone...brown, light brown, and gray duct tape where the previous owner covered Bondo on the bottom of both rocker panels.
AC belt is off.. not spending a dime on that. Probably need coolant too.
This car is rough, but still runs good for 150K.
The car has a huge gas guzzling 403 in it. All electric seats, windows, locks, cruise control, 8-track works great!
I bought it mainly for hauling drywall, bags of cement, or other rehab materials. Starts after the second or third turn of the key. Oxygen sensor needs to be replaced as well as the vacuum tubes. I've already driven it close to 1000 miles... not bad for $250.00 car (including rotor work).
Good for Chicago, I don't care if someone lights it on fire and drives it in Lake Michigan.
Transmission is fairly new and shifts great. This is a good beater, but I'm currently looking for a great beater Volvo Wagon... they last forever.
I'll either sell this or put it in a demo derby.
