Selling 1992 Oldsmobile Toronado below Blue Book

36 posts in this topic

I am selling a 1992 Toronado. It has 97,000 miles on the odometer. I am selling it for 1500-1800. Kelly Blue book rates it at 2,080 dollars. The body and interior is in great condition and there are no other known issues other than the engine needing new head gaskets. I have invested a little money into the car. You will get the floor mats, new GM stereo, the keyless remote and new items listed below. All the electronics work. The air conditioner works. I have new fuel lines and brake lines installed. I am also including another steering wheel with airbag and steering wheel controls in working order. The car still starts. The car passed emissions and state inspection in January 2007. The state registration is good until December. The state inspection is good until the end of January 2008. Please respond if interested.

List of items to repaired:

1. The head gasket replacement is needed

2. The door chimes do not chime.

You can buy it and repair the car or buy the whole thing as a parts car. You are responsible for shipping in and out of state.

I am selling it as is. Price is negotiable.

List of new items:

new fuel lines

new fuel filter

new engine belt

new brake lines

new rear brakes

excellent GM stereo from 1992 Toronado

new floor mats

fixed the black plastic trim on the interior

changed the warning lights to decent ones

cleaned trunk

reprogrammed remote to work with car

fixed interior lights with new sensor to work at dark

steering wheel needs to be installed( full functioning, painted to match interior

new air filter

changed all the fuses

new power steering fluid

cleaned leather interior twice and shined it up.

No cracks in the interior

fixed door lights

new battery

fixed black trim around windows.

change bulbs in taillights

changed bulb under hood

change bulb in trunk so that it will illuminate when trunk is open

Here is a link to the photos of the car:

Yeah, 98's done enough to it that it's in good enough condition that it won't hit the scrap pile.

I thank you guys for your concern. I thank you for your comments.. So far no takers yet. Yes, I have done a lot to it too. The new owner just needs to fix the engine and get a new catalytic converter, and exhaust and just go. I have done a lot that I did not list.

Here is a run down of things I did:

new fuel lines

new fuel filter

new engine belt

new brake lines

new rear brakes

excellent GM stereo from 1992 Toronado

new floor mats

fixed the black plastic trim on the interior

changed the warning lights to decent ones

cleaned trunk

fixed interior lights with new sensor to work at dark

If I had the means for transporting it to PA and could afford it in the first place, I'd take it off your hands for you since Headgaskets are 90% cheaper here. :wink:

For all you've done that's a pretty fair asking price if I do say so myself...

Is the selling price because of the engine issue? Time flies...I forgot how long you've owned this sled?

Last night as I'm driving my 92 Regal (which has given no powertrain problems thus far) and of which I am the original owner, it has 238,000 miles, I am wondering if I could get 1,200 to 1,400 dollars.

It has new brakes/struts all the way around and new plug wires. Tires are only about 10,000 miles old. Think I could get this, probably right after the new year?

1200 CDN$, easy, but I don't know about elsewhere.

Since December 2006. Hardly drove it. Did not get to enjoy it really. It has been in the driveway since May 2007. Yes, the price is because of the engine. I liked the handling though. It was better than driving the Ninety Eight. It handled very well. You can get that price.

Good Luck though!

I came home to show the Toronado. I had a potential buyer. He came and looked at the car and drove it. He was impressed. He brought his girlfriend and his mother. He had emailed me today. I met him in my driveway after work. He said and his mother said they noticed the Toronado and looked at it. He was like you did a lot of work on this car. He connected some vacuum hose and all that rough idle sound it had when it starts and drives was gone. It sounds better. I took his drivers license and mother as hostage and I let him drive the car. He drove it with his girlfriend. He was like wow! That car is nice. He was shocked at the luxury features too. His mother was the one who noticed. She stopped by the other day and looked at it. They were like wow everything works. They said your cars are in great shape!! He said he would call to let me know later. They left I put the signs back on the car.

He offered a fair price too.

Even if he does not, I wanted to show that a mechanic even looked at it and drove it to show that it is worth what I am asking. He was wanting to pay the price I was was asking which is higher. So the car is still for sale until I get some one who commits to buying it.
