Just bought this one the other day for "spare parts". Turns out it has nothing I need and I think I'm going to bring it back to life again as my new daily driver. The motor has a gnarly knock which is suspected to be a rod. Won't know till it gets torn open but I'm going to start looking for a Caravan or Sonata block to swap out. Unfortunately I just scrapped a Caravan a few months ago for next to nothing with a good motor. Really pissed I didn't hold onto it.
I bought the new ride last week, and went to pick it up Saturday only to find out some punk kid(s) decided to break out a window, cut the rear carpet up, and break the handle for the cargo door. Funny thing is that the whole driver side of the truck was covered in poison ivy, so I'm pretty sure they are itching like hell right now. It's not the full justice I would like to get, but it's kinda funny.
The day I paid for it, it looked like this:
And how it looked when I went to pick it up:
We took it to a good car wash and scrubbed it pretty good. Vacuumed out all the glass. The body seems pretty decent, but the interior is infested with ants. I taped up a trash bag to keep the rain out, and tomorrow will see how many millions it will cost to replace the glass. Brakes are locked up a bit from sitting. The mileage was around 158k which is about 100k less than my 90 auto. If not for the broken window I would have been way happier with my purchase.
A couple things I noticed is that it has an LSD rear, manual locks, manual windows, and headlight washers. It's been a while since I've read up on what's factory option or not, but I didn't think LSD came on anything other than the LS trim?
Things I see now that I know will be needed is a driver side brake lens, driver side tan seat belt receiver, and eventually some rear cargo door parts.
