Thats too bad...
I had a look at it, and it's fairly nice, in good condition, it's fuel injected (sweet!) and theres almost no body rust, didn't get a chance to get under and look around, but he's only asking 1500 for it (canadian dollars of course).
It's tranny has been rebuilt, but he said he drove it up here from kelowna (about 6 - 8 hours drive away) and along that trip he noticed the tranny started to slip a little, so he added a bit of fluid and it was fine, but hasn't been driven since.
How worried should i be about that? I'm thinking it could just be a random hiccup that will be otherwise fine. I've had the auto tranny in my current car slip briefly and have never had it happen again. What do you guys think?
Regardless i still am a bit bent on getting it because i really miss driving the old fintail i had.
EDIT: oh forgot, a couple other issues, the rear mercedes emblem has the ring missing, and it has power windows, but only the drivers one works, and not well, so those are things i would/will have to address.
It had a bit of an issue starting at first, but it's been sitting for about 2 years and i don't know how often it was started and ran, once it got running though it purred quite nicely, those I6's are good engines!
