Description

This was one of a treasured 'fleet' of 300 diesels that I ran for my kids when they each needed 'first cars'. I personally drove this one more than any other of the seven (yes, even!) I've got at least 30K miles in the driver's seat of this one.

THE ODOMETER IS ACCURATE!!!

186,000 MILES

When last parked, t didn't shift out of 1st gear but started and ran perfectly. One mechanic told me that it could be as simple a fix as a vacuum issue or small part/switch attached to the transmission that could be swapped out in 20 minutes. Another told me it was time to rebuild a transmission.

This is NOT a turbo diesel so the transmission swap is a MUCH easier deal than the turbo. Hence, just parked it and waited for the then 'life storm' to end (ugly marriage conclusion). That over, don't have the heart or the interest to continue on this particular car.

EVERYTHING on this car worked to some degree when parked but nothing was exceptional. It just droveperfectly and was a blast to ride in and be seen in. If you have never owned one of these, rust me, ou will be talked to, aved at and asked questions at every filling station and travel stop.

"It's a 1981 for cry'in out loud!"

See the pictures, ee the video. Ask questions if there's more you need to know.

PICK UP MUST HAPPEN WITHIN 7 DAYS OF CLOSE. FULL PAYMENT MUST HAPPEN BEFORE THEN. 50% MUST BE FORWARDED BY WAY OF THE 'PAYPAL DEPOSIT' WITHIN 24 HOURS OF CLOSE.


I will take PAYPAL if you need to make the "holding deposit" (50% of total cost) in the first 48 hours without picking up in person. If you pay the 50% immediately, I'll hold it for up to 10 days.
IF YOU PAY FOR THE WHOLE CAR VIA PAYPAL I'M GOING TO ADD 4% TO THE TOTAL FOR THEIR FEES. (It stinks that they charge what they do but they're the only game -- can you say "monopoly" -- in town via Ebay these days.)
IF YOU BID, IN and DON'T PAY it will end badly for you...very, ery badly. I've seen to that before and I kinda like doing it. I see it as a service to protecting others from lousy bidders in cyberspace. Don't bid if you don't already have the cash in your pocket. Just don't do it!
If you show up inside of 48 hours from the close of auction (or send your shipper inside that window and pay fully prior to them arriving) I'll just charge you the close price and the handling fee listed

($50 to help cover the listing fees)
There's my 'usual disclaimer' below but you already have all the information you need on this one...if you're looking for a good used car that repairs cheap and easy OR you're looking for a place to start a restoration, ust press 'buy it now'.
If you own it, ou'll consider yourself lucky. I always have.

We accept Paypal (and cash in person) from EVERYONE.
Due to Ebay restrictions, nly PAYPAL.
(a few greedy folks have ruined that for all the others...)
Enjoy the auction!

please do note:
I have been selling on Ebay for over twenty years. Yes, ince the very beginning. This is my third seller I.D. (due to security breaches each and every time...) and my ex-wife is still selling on one of my previous ebay accounts where we had over 3000 feedbacks alone! I have THOUSANDS of satisfied customers but you MUST know...
* I save time by using beautiful, risp, i-res photos.
** I will describe any damage or noteworthy issues as best as I can immediately upon noting any issue.
AND--
***We don't clean or try to 'doctor' any item. I have actually been berated (very early in my 'ebay career') for "ruining the patina" on a 100 year old lamp that I lightly wiped down before shipping it. How I find an item is how you will receive it. If it has indications of age, hether that be tarnish-rust-corrosion-or mold blooms, ou will receive it exactly that way in order for you to do as you wish from that point. THIS INCLUDES VEHICLES FROM MY GARAGE!
With the exception of some new items I sell which I have purchased for myself and later found I wouldn't or couldn't use, LL of my items are old. Those old items are from sales where almost everything being sold has long since been out of production or they have thought up another 40 (or 400) improvements since the item was originally sold. If you're like me, hat may be exactly WHY you are looking for the older version (or even the 'original' version) of something. They usually work better AND are easier to fix and keep working longer! My house runs (and runs well) on all sorts of those items and I can understand anyone's melancholy over the loss of the era when things were manufactured to last and NOT be discarded for the replacement (because they were designed to die and others be sold to you inside of five years from buying the first... whatever!)
****ALL of my items are listed on multiple local boards and at other locations, reserve the right to end an auction on any item prior to the closing time due to local sale.

AS TO SHIPPING---THIS IS A VEHICLE AUCTION.

WE DO NOT SHIP CARS OR MOTORCYCLES. YOU PICK UP AND DO SO INSIDE OF A WEEK AFTER PAYING...and you PAY INSIDE OF 48 HOURS FROM CLOSE.
Finally---
I sell because I have very dear to me SEVEN very bright kids all getting very expensive educations! Don't bid expecting to 'renegotiate' a final price once you get the item or, s in the case of a vehicle, xpecting to negotiate another price when you arrive to pick it up. You will be wasting your time and you will NOT find the outcome suitable to your cause. I have been doing this for a very long time. In the case of a vehicle, ou will walk away with nothing.


You can't pull something I haven't already seen (or heard of) on Ebay before now. I'm honest, y items are the 'real deal' and my customers appreciate both my frank, traightforward nature and my dependability. In short, br>I treat my customers like I like to be treated by all people who try to sell ME anything... well.


All the best to each of you in your bidding and your futures.
