  • Description
Work in progress. This car is well on it's way to restoration, lots good about the car, needs paint mainly to get it where it can be.
I've had it since February, brought it back to emission capable as it failed miserably with headers, found all the stock engine bay forced air injection reaction equipment, manifolds, distribution block, etc a bunch of pieces to bring it back to emission compliance, and a Flowmaster 3" California Air Resources Board compliant cat converter, car passed easily with all the right stuff back in there, including the 1989 only 3" exhaust collector & crossover pipe which I also found to bring it back to 1989 spec.

The Good:

Car has a rebuilt 350 with Crane Type 104224 cam, which is at the outer limit of the Memcal chip calibration capability, has a noticeable growl, 10000 km on the rotating assembly, and produces serious power. I've had some powerful birds of prey, LT1, 403 Olds with ridiculous power, 400 blue blocks with big cam, this 350 has lots of power, and so it should, as it has flat top pistons with valve relief for high compression, the maximum cam for the computer, built right and runs perfect. Previous owner spent 4000 on the motor.

Car has new Yokohama tires, 1300 dollars, with 4000km.

Car has a fiberglass rear spoiler, a 500 dollar bill but well spent given the factory rubber spoilers always look like crap because they don't hold paint.

The bad:
Paint was blown in with some orange peel on the driver side only, compressor pressure wasn't maintained, anyway previous owner sanded about half of the body again (driver door and front driver fender need sanding still, and half the hood), but it looks pretty good in sanded Matte black, it could look pretty good in matte when the sanding is complete, car gets more than enough good commentary on the matte black.

Car was certified and e tested in June 2016. E test is valid. shouldn't need much for safety, but one of the headlight assemblies needs a bushing kit 10 dollars in parts, but an hour's labour.

The extras:
Car comes with lots of parts to complete a restoration, including door seals, UT4 push button stereo and pigtails for steering wheel controls, has new dash speakers and killer rear speakers per the previous owner, misc GTA body badges, 3" cat back pipe, spare distributor, spare ECM, and a few other pieces, oh and a crack free dash that still has to be installed.

Good solid winter project, car has had more than enough money put into it, its worst days are in the rear view mirror, it is not a tired out 27 year old car. Drives and handles beautifully. Body is straight, and undercarriage is solid.

A deal at 3500
