I bought this car a few years ago and it was my intention of making it into a modern resto-modification. It needed some work in quite a few areas and I fixed most of the items in question, there are still some things that it needs but I no longer have time to work on it. I can give a much more detailed history to anyone who is interested as well as tons of pictures.
The paint and body are very sound, only minor scratches on the nose, no dents anywhere. The car was repainted by a previous owner and it still shines very well. OEM wheels are perfect with no scratches at all, tires still have plenty of tread.
Things I've replaced so far are as follows:
Pacesetter Long tube Headers, Felpro Gaskets and Stage 8 Locking Hardware
Summit Racing 2.5" X-pipe system
Dynomax Bullet Mufflers to turn downs in front of rear axle
Bosch Heated O2 sensors with extension harness
KN Ram Air system installed by previous owner
Intake manifold removed to remove EGR and EVAP systems during header install, intake resealed and replaced, no leaks
BBK Throttle Body
Polyurethane Motor Mounts
Slotted/Crossdrilled brakes with new pads, done earlier this year.
Driver's side window motor and switch just replaced
All front end ball joints, bushings, tie rod ends, sway bar mounts and end links replaced.
OEM shocks and Springs installed on all four corners to replace unknown lowering kit of some kind.
Rear Hotchkis Control Arms, done be previous owner.
Rear sway bar mounts and end links replaced.
Tune was done by LT1pcmtuning.com and I also have all the parts to flash another chip if someone wanted to change the tune which will go with the car.
3.73 rear gear installed, factory was 3.23, done by previous owner.
There are a number of things this car needs in order to really be considered great:
Seats are out of an 00 Firebird, gray leather which is cracking and torn in several places on the drivers seat, others are good.
There is no headliner in the car.
The complete AC system under the hood is removed (no compressor, lines, or condenser in the grill) the evaporator is still under the dash and the large "black box" is still under the hood.
The power steering system is gone, pump, lines, and reservoir are all gone. I had planned to convert to a manual rack but have not had time to do so. There is a "low mount" alternator kit installed which is the only thing running off the front of the motor.
Dash pad is cracked in several places.
Center console ash tray door is missing.
There are some other little items I can list off in a detailed history to any interested parties, I'm not trying to hide anything and have an accurate list of all parts installed and things I would still do if I was keeping it.
Also it was brought to my attention that the car's Odometer numbers sitting slightly off center makes it suspicious for being rolled back. Looking at all the things I've mentioned up front I hope any potential buyer can see that I am trying to be honest, I could have not mentioned any of the things I've corrected and just all the positive modifications.
Shortly after I bought the car I did a lot of the work I mentioned in the original ad. The speedometer was about 10mph off at highway speeds, when I had the car tuned the tuner attempted to correct it. The speedometer reads much more accurate now, although as a side effect the odometer numbers began to stop off center. I have no idea what caused that, but I can assure anyone the odometer was not rolled back.
