Now to the body, new OEM Buick hood insulator, new window glass weatherstrip sweeps on both doors, new door/door jamb/pillar weatherstrip rubber moulding(both sides), new trunk weatherstrip moulding.

The front grill and headlights/headlight doors and parking light lenses are intact with no cracks or breaks. The body has no rust and no major dents, slight dings here and there that are suprisely little for the age of this vehicle.(A good body man could get them out.) This vehicle at one time was recently repainted. New T-Type body emblems, not yet installed. But they will still go with the vehicle. The interior is an 7.5 to a 8.5 out of 10 in appearance and condition. The carpet and seat covers were replaced by the previous owner. New shifter handle, new lower door panels. The instrument cluster is the digital type. Sunroof operates and does not leak. Now for alittle history, I picked this vehicle up from a friend about 18 months ago. It had been sitting in his garage for several years. He was way over his head with the mechanical end of this vehicle. It was in bad shape as indicated by the work I have done to it. I believe I am the third owner of this vehicle, it has a clear Florida title, I never registered the vehicle. My intentions were to keep the vehicle after I completed repairing it, well circumstances have changed, it must go. I am a Certified ASE and General Motors Technician (close to 20 years). I was working on these bad boys when they were driving them off the transporters. This is not a hobby for me, it's my trade. All the mechanical work that I have done on this Buick is of the highest caliber and standard. My specialty among others is engine repair and engine performance. The next owner of this Buick will have for all practical purposes a new vehicle. If you are interested in more pics email me at Acarr32701@aol.com.If you have any other questions you can also contact me. Vehicle Condition Missing one trim piece at each front seat that covers the tilt mechanism for upright portion of the seat. Power antenna motor operates but the antenna mast drive cable is stripped. (I have not been able to locate one or else I would of replaced it) Does not have radio or front and rear speakers installed. (I will supply an AC Delco AM/FM radio and rear speakers) The new owner can have the option of installing them or a system of his own liking at his own expense. Digital trip odometer section of cluster does not light up, all other (fuel, speedo sections do light up) Separate volt, temp, oil, and Turbo Boost indicators all work when required to. All of the above are minor problems. Terms of Sale This vehicle has NO WARRANTIES and is SOLD AS IS. Payment of 50% of the total is due within 72 hours of the end of sale.
