The Search For the Beater/Daily Driver

37 posts in this topic

wellllllllll ive been searching for a daily driver for a while, so i can take the nova off the road to work on it. While i was searching for a `cheap,6 banger daily driver, i found a BOF, RWD, V8 toy that i just couldnt pass up.

It looks like BV's beast, only it actually moves under its own power :P

while most G-Bodys locally are rotted by now, this one has escaped the ravages of time.

i went to go look at it yesterday, gave the guy a deposit and i pick it up on sunday :D i cant wait!

heres the info from the craigslist Ad, until i get some pics of my own... i can tell you, it looks even better then the pics!

1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

20K on orginal rebuilt motor.

Buckets console.

442 handle suspension.

442 original chrome rims.

Car in excellent condition.

Repainted to original burgandy color with mirror-like finish.

A/C works great.

Tires in excellent condition.

New radiator, catalytic convertor, alternator, fan clutch, and water pump.

Car rides, feels, and looks like new.

Car interior very clean.

Car has all the options and looks of a 442.

307 high output V8 engine

Interior looks even better then the pictures show

the only rust on the whole car is two small spots on the back bumper, and my parts guy i bought most of my Nova Parts from said it wouldnt cost more then $100...

i probably could have found a cheaper beater that would have gotten better mileage, but i could not resist a car this clean. sunday cant come soon enough.. i cant wait to get it home!!!!!

Wow, what a nice car that is! With all the stuff I've had, I often wonder how I still have not yet managed to own an old G-body, be it nice OR just a beater. I really need to own one soon I think.

How much was/is it?

I'll say this. My '86 Regal driving brother is jealous...even without knowing a price :AH-HA_wink: I'm not a fan of these cars (well, aside from looks and such), but no denying this example is one of the best around.

usually i wouldnt be as inclined to pay so much for a g body, bu for the fact its ubbbbbber clean, the $2700 i negotiated with the guy seems pretty fair in my opinion..

Nice find, SS623. I like the car a lot and it seems that you also got a good deal as well.

It looks as nice as my '85 Caprice. Very nice. And by 1986 they had done a few things to them to modernize them a bit while still staying true to its mission. Good luck. A few things may come up as you drive it but they should be easy to take care of. Working A/C is a BIG plus in my book and a rare thing to find it seems like.

I wonder what color it is. If it's Dark Maple Red Metallic I will probably laugh my ass off. Anyways... How about a $600 parts car?

LOL!

Ya know, I admit ... I had forgotten that you and he are friends. But, now that you mention it, yeah, I do remember...he he.

And, since I do now remember, you know I expect pics of your Olds with his MC ;).

BUT...be careful about calling yourself that. After all, my daily is my '87 MC LS...and while I bought it from an older couple, I don't see myself as rocking a grandpa ride ;).

*pauses*

Course, I've never attracted a female, either.......hmmmm.......

*sighs*
