Is the ignition coil good? How about the bumper chrome (anybody know if the bumper chrome will fit a first gen SE?)?

I know I can start it, but I wouldn't know how to test the ignition coil for you.
At this point, I'm willing to let the whole car go for $350.

Unfortunately, I am not equipped to remove major parts. Other people have been interested in the wheels. The wheels have to go with the car, because I at least need to be left with a rolling chassis...

The interior is blue, and dead... it was a Florida car that lived by the ocean...

Firewater would be interested in the car I bet, he needs wheels (are they 16's?) and wants a new hood.

Firewater, if you get this and part it, I would be interested in the Radiator, Condenser and Fan Blade.

Windshield is fine and was replaced shortly before the car got laid up... Someone please come and take this thing away. I'm sure the seat motors, window motors, and assorted other items on this car are at least worth $350+ to the right buyer...

A/C still blew cold after many years of being laid up...

That Bad?

Hi to loss,
Is that the correct mileage for this car: the 80K listed under 'nightmare' ??
I read in your prior post that it was owned by a Fla. mechanic, who you know did not maintain it properly, and it's been in the backyard awhile since. Did it ever get registered up here?

Wanted to ask how long it's been since it was last driven? Is there an identified fault that prevents it from running now? More specifically, do you know how well the transmission performed before it got 'parked'? I'm assuming it'd need to be towed-out (I'm in RI).

I have some interest here... although not a home for it figured out - yet.

I just talked to you on the phone, but for the others:

No, it is not the 1991 "nightmare".
It has been sitting for years.
It was not mechanic owned, it was my father's car.
The exhaust is no good.
There was extensive front end work done to the car before it was laid up.
The A/C blew cold last summer.
It will run.
It is not drivable.
It is only for parts at this stage.
There were no major faults with the car that caused it to be laid up, it just was... my parents are a bit eccentric, and the car stopped looking pretty.
the odo says 194,xxx miles. I have no idea whether that is accurate or not... but to be fair, I would think that it isn't, and possibly you'd be pleasantly surprised if it is.
My dad drove this car one hundred miles per day when it was in FL, and he certainly spent an awful lot of money maintaining it.
It was never registered in MA.

Thanks

Appreciate your taking time to answer questions. Am investigating tow company vs. U-Haul options, but it looks like I'll have to jump on the phone to get actual quotes. Baseline is 60 miles 1-way.

If you have a multimeter that reads ohms I can tell you how to check the coil. Might not be worth it from your end though, it's not a very valuable part (though, it only takes removing two bolts, undoing 2 nuts, and unplugging a wire to get it out).
