T!GH+ WH1P$ fleet update

19 posts in this topic

With my personal life being such a mess and all I have not had

a chance to update you guys on my latest car purchase, car

sale & the last chapter in the Oldsmobile Super 88 saga...

Here's how I spent my day Friday, May 18th.

7:00am: Super 88 picked up by shipping company.

1:00pm - 7:00pm: Helped Julie move out of her Ex's house... my Cadillac's huge trunk comes in handy.

Posted Image

5:00pm: XP calles me up and talks me into selling him my 1977 Coupe deVille.

I end up telling him I have to turn a small profit or I'm keeping the car, two

hours later he's got his plates on it and we're bombing up the road to get

me my replacement car that I had lined up in Rockport, MA.

9:00pm: Got a kick ass deal on a 1976 Buick LeSabre 4dr hardtop.

Did I mention it was 455 powered? :D

Posted Image

More photos coming soon.

FYI: This car is for sale for $1300 or best offer...

It's a hip hop song by the 504 Boyz. It's a song about fancy cars. It's a car club created by Sixty8, XP715 and speedingpenguin. It's a chauffeur service. It's a long haul trucking company. It's a forum signature. It's a way of life. 8)

:yes:

Sixty8, how much did you pay for the Buick?

I payed less than $1300. :wink:

Or... about 1/3 of the amount of money than my insurance costs on the B-59 per year.

If you ever decide to garage or limit the use of the B-59 get collector insurance. It cost me $225 a year for 10k on my 55 Chev, because it was modified.

Were it to be unmodified I could have had it for about a hundred a year.

The car is on Craigslist as of a few min. ago:

~~~~~~~~~~~

Maybe you want a mint 1970 Buick Grand Sport GSX

Stage-II 455 ragtop w/ a 4-speed in Saturn Yellow?

But you're on more of a 1986 Buick Century budget?

Hot-diggaty do I have the car for YOU!

You're looking at a rock solid 1976 Buick LeSabre

four door HARDTOP with the 7.4 liter 455 iron v8.

So it may not be as quick & as fast as a 1987 Buick

Grand National with the 3.8 liter TURBO but it will

absolutely NOT dissapoint as a fun, cheap, super

easy to work on "family muscle car".

I bought this car after I fell in LOVE with it a

few weeks ago... it has been my daily driver for a

few weeks now but an unexpected job change leaves

me in a position where I NEED a truck. I need the

money and the space in my driveway for a rollback

flatbed since I am changing careers and rethinking

my life all together. I have three other cars so this

one is just a toy for me at this point.

This car absolutely MUST be sold by June 10th, so

make an offer today before it's outta here.

Here's the basics:

1. Super SOLID... 99% less rust than a typical New England 1970s car!

2. Only 74,000 miles (original milage)

3. Originally from Nebraska... hence the lack of rust (#1.)

4. Nice reliable 455, 1976 was a good year for 455 blocks

5. Body On Frame construction, they DO NOT make 'em like this any more!

6. Bronze exterior paint, tan top & tan interior

7. I think GM called this color "Monkey $#it Brown"

8. Brand NEW tires, big wide 235-75-R15 blackwall radials

9. Some small tears & rips in the driver's seat

10. "Dissapearing B-pillar" roof, frameless glass

11. Yes it IS a hardtop... just like you uncle's 1959 Cadillac deVille

12. Headliner, rug, door panels etc. in good shape

13. I replaced the V-belt for the alternator & H20 pump

14. All glass is in great shape, no breaks or chips

15. Lights, safety euip... it all works

16. AM radio with crappy speakers only works every other thursday

17. Only one hubcap has curb damage

18. Brake job just done, recent new alternator

19. Just installed a new hood ornament w/ a heavy duty retaining spring

20. New trunklid emblem and repainted air cleaner cover

21. Anteana built into the windshield (like on my 1979 Citation)

22. All stainless rocker panel trim present

23. Nice clean Rotchester Carb. It likes to suck down the 87 octane

24. Still gets better fuel economy than a lot of big modern SUVs

25. 100% rust free trunk, inside & out spackle paint like new

26. Original bumper jack & tire iron included

27. Rear seat is MINT, I can not deny or confirm any fornication

28. A few dents & dings add to it's character...

29. The right front fender is off an Electra

30. You get ONE free extra porthole, for a total of seven (see #29.)

31. Just like all the cool classics the high beams are on the floor

32. Super swank door panels with the tri-shields

33. Original foor mats, those alone are worth $3 at a yard sale

34. Also has one of coolest accessories of the 1970s: Crotch Vents

35. Remote Trunk Release, in glovebox (this 'aint not Piece of $hit Ford)

36. Manual Windows, they never break like power ones.

37. Assuming you want to keep the original paint it IS in good shape

38. This car would look great painted in flat black like a classic Hot Rod

39. I can paint it flat black for you at no additional cost, your choice

40. Former owner was a Justice of the Peace, Balla!!!

41. It gets somewhere between 4 and 37 miles to the gallon

42. You do NOT need to do an emissions test since it's a classic

43. You can get cheap insurance since it's a classic

44. You can get Antique plates (see #42.)

45. New dome light & rear view mirror just installed

46. Huge 18-wheeler style Honda-crushing bumers front & rear

47. Officialy it's a 6 passanger, but it will seat about 9 semi-comfortably

48. There's room for a shovel, big bag of lyme & about 5 bodies in the trunk

49. It has Buick's standard "USS Enterprise" suspension package

50. Inspection sticker (100% pass) good until December of 2007

All those annoying things that make a cheap used car

a moneypit are NOT present on this car. The fuel tank

does NOT leak, the brakes are perfect and stop great

the transmission shifts smoothly & without any drama

while the legendary 455 motor purrrs like a kitten.

Will consider interesting trades... (pre 1979 cars/trucks)

Cash talks, cashier's check will be okay too.

Well that was quick. The LeSabre is sold... I have a gentleman's

agrement with a member of this very forum who has decided to

buy it for a low-low-LOW price with the promise that the car will

never see a demolition derby & it will NOT be a Donk-Box-Bubble.

It is up to the buyer weather they want to speak up. :P

Still want to see pics of the Roadmaster Estate :]

I bought the Roadmaster Estate for $412.00

Seriously. It needs some serious work but is drivable. I'm keeping

that one long term... you'll see plenty of photos soon enough.

I have not taken any photos yet, beleive it or not. it's baby blue

with the gawd-awful wood sides.

By the time I get another transmission in the car or get my trans.

serviced it will probably be flat black.

Yup, the spedo is kind of cool, the door panels are very classy IMHO.

This is the night I bought the car... it was garaged while

a Volvo 240 wagon, 2000-something Ford Taurus & an

early 1990s Crown Vic. stayed outside.
