haha, this was my grandfather car, which has survived two divorces. It was stored most of its life, and about 5-7 years ago had everything replaced that had any signs of dry rot, or tarnish (all the window trim). Heres some more pictures.... Not sure on timing belt, I would have to look threw all the service records, which I do have, and will come with the car. It only has 125K, on the original motor and trans, never been replaced.

Heres more pics...





you gotta love the old cell phone lol

ok, SERVICE UPDATE

Looked threw my grandfathers receipts and service records.

Within in the last thousand miles the cylinder head was replaced, and transmission rebuilt. I dont see the timing chain listed under parts, but I have a hard time imagining the reassembled the engine with a new one. There are plenty of other parts added at that time. It was within the last 1000 miles, but, was done in 2006. That gives you an idea on how much this has been driven.....

To members of this forum: Why is no one interested in this car? If the pictures that were posted are current pictures and the maintenance is as it is represented here, sounds like a good deal. Or am I missing something?

To the owner: Assume I'm interested. Which airport would I fly into (Preferrably Southwest Airlines)? And, would you trust this car enough to allow your most beloved friend/family member to take it on a 1500 mile + drive right now?

Thanks,

Greg

It's a desirable color combination. Why haven't peopled jumped on it? they are not that rare and the market for 20 year old V8s, when gas prices approach $4, is pretty soft. If you like it, buy it.

its been tough to sell here in New England, I have gotten tons of interest down South.

Comes down to bad economy.... location...location and location.
