Up for auction isa 1989 Buick LeSabre Estate station wagon. It has 142,000 miles. I bought it in June 2015. I'm selling it because the engine destroyed itself.

The Bad:

-The car does NOT run, the 307 engine cracked the block and I believe there are at least one or two bend rods, most likely more.

-The power locks liked to lock me out of the car at random times so I pulled the breaker, but because the driver power seat and defroster ran off the same circuit, they stopped working too.

-Big dent in the driver side rear door, though the window and door still function properly.

-Has air conditioning and worked when I bought the car last year, but has since stopped working.

-Car needs outer body work. A previous owner did some amateur body work on it probably to pass inspection, I tried touching it up with spray paint for the same reason. The original paint is faded and peeled in spots.

-The two inner front wheel wells are half plastic and half metal. The metal in both sides rusted out completely. Also the doors have rust on the inside bottoms of them.

-Headliner shot and a battery is not included with car. Also positive battery terminal was cut off of wire, negative battery cable connection has rubber stripped off.

-Power antenna doesn't go up and down anymore but still functions for the after market radio/cassette player, had to cut the wire to it because previous owner pulled the fuse for it but in doing that the top speed of the blower motor didn'twork. The antenna motor would not stop running with the fuse in. But due to the fact the inner fender wells in the front were totally rusted out, it made it easy to access the power antenna motor wires.

-Lock up torque converter didn't always disengage when coming to a stop so the car would bounce a little when slowing down, and when accelerating the car was quite slow.

-Wipers are jerry-rigged, since I planned on running this car until it completely rusted out I simply rigged the wipers up to run (low and off). Something burned out in them and the mechanics I was using at the time weren't sure what was wrong with them so I went through THREE wiper motors (the original wiper motor would work at random times, second one lasted a week or two before if literally burned up, on the third one the motor works but came on all by itself and burned up the washer. It also wouldn't shut off so I disconnected it and ran my own wiring which included drilling into the firewall to get my own wiring/switch in place).

-Two front tires have good tread but have some dry rot on the sidewalls

-Tail pipe rusted off behind the muffler, car still ran quiet

Now the Good:

-New gas tank and sending unit.

-New shocks all around.

-Back two tires are pretty new, Cornell 1000's with roughly 4000 miles on them.

-New brake and fuel lines.

-Underneath pretty solid, floors and frame look good.

-Spare tire well has rust in it, but no rust holes that I can see. The bracket that holds the tire in place did rust out at the bottom and is no longer attached to the well.

-All power windows work, all glass is good.

-No wrecks, not sitting in a field, engine failed at the end of August, right as the inspection ran out.

-Third seat

-Has factory Posi-Traction rear end with the oil changed in it last year

-Transmission flushed, fluid and filter change last year

-Interior isn't bad, no tears in the seats, dash is good, though it could use a really good vacuum and clean. Headliner is hanging down and torn.

The car definitely needs some things, however if your mechanically inclined and live in a state that has no inspection, all you'd really have to do is put a new 307 engine in it. For states with inspection it may take a little more work. Or it has a lot of good parts to help other wagons stay on the road.
