This vehicle is located in Warsaw, Indiana 46582

I can’t count the number of times at a gas station that someone would come over to admire the car, and there were a few a few folks who tried to buy it from me- once for cash on the spot. I want to hand the car over to someone who will love it, work on it, mod it, and enjoy driving the hell out of it the way I have. Anyway, here is the car for sale:

he car has been mostly garage kept, but it was used as a DD on and off when my ’90 Cadillac Fleetwood barge was down. As regards documentation I have some older dealer service documents. For about two years a friend who is a certified aircraft mechanic and I started doing regular maintenance ourselves and while I do have receipts for some parts and materials, I did not keep records of the dates and mileage. (I know, shame on me.) You will have to go on faith that the car has been well cared for at recommended service intervals. Many of the maintenance items were used as an opportunity for an upgrade.

The car has a couple of small issues: There is some non-penetrating rust on the chassis. The passenger-side mirror is held on with duct tape after an unfortunate intersection with a car wash brush. The driver's side window controls are loose. The fuel door switch is broken so I have the fuel door blocked from completely closing. Scratches and scrapes are consistent with a 21-year-old vehicle.

I will get pictures up Monday, but there aren't going to be any big surprises.

I am asking $3800.00 "as-is where-is" whole as it sits. The car is worth more than that but I recognize that with this mileage the cam drive chain guides and chains should be done soon after purchase. Fix those and you will have a car with another 200K on it. Break the car up and the pieces are worth a lot more than $3800. Ebay has a Marauder engine and transmission alone listed at about 6K. The pedal adjustment gear is broken, but I will give the buyer a metal replacement gear.
