Wagon with 218.000 on the clock, engine runs and sounds good but gets hot fast (pegs the gauge) and then settles down. It builds up a lot of pressure which leads me to believe it is a head gasket or cracked head. Does not overheat on the highway. I just don't have the time or inclination to fix it. Really nice for parts. Trans is good, A/C works; Body is ok, a little rust in the jack-holes and the worst paint job on the planet! Interior is fair to good (sunroof inop, extra motor included) Recent parts (last 2 years) include windshield, headlight doors (the plastic part that surrounds the headlight and includes the foglight lens, really pricey new) Overvoltage relay, cooling fan clutch and updated fan, drive shaft geebo joints, idler arm, right side window switches, alternator, cap, rotor, and wires, front struts and rear hatch struts. Includes extra rear end with higher ratio (3.07, bought one day when I was really motivated!)for lower rpms on the highway. Asking $850, will entertain offers, just looking to get it out of the driveway. Delivery may be possible for gas money and a train ticket home.
