First post started a flame war, thought I'd give it one more try before
I put er' on E-Bay. Please note the OBO listed after the price.
My neighbor just gave me his old 87' Astro Van (yes, just gave it to me,
great neighbor eh?) for parts or to sell. While the 700R4 would go
nicely in my El Camino I'd rather sell the thing outright so someone can
get some use out of it.
1987, Chevy Astro, 2WD. 4.3L TBI, TH700R4 transmission. 330,000 Mobil 1
miles (230K on rebuilt Jasper engine, original tranny). Starts, runs and
drives great, as it's been very well maintained. Doesn't burn oil,
coolant or anything else other than gas, he he he. The body shows it's
age, paint is decent but clearcoat is long gone. All of the sheetmetal
is straight and dent-free. Typical rusted-out rocker panels, but other
than that very little rust. Interior is decent, upholstery is clean and
no rips or tears that I can see. Great rubber (Uniroyals) with 95% of
tread remaining. Clean Title.
What it needs: brake lines all the way around. The current lines are
intact but likely to disentegrate anytime now as they're pretty bad.
There is a gas leak somewhere high up in the fuel circuit, my guess is
the fuel tank sending unit lines are rusted out, but it could be
somewhere else. There is a decent oil leak, either front seal or oil
pan, haven't really looked.
If anyone is interested and has SPECIFIC questions, I'll run out to the
garage and get the answers for ya. Pics available on request. If you're
really interested I might be persuaded into fixing the problems for a
couple bucks before you pick it up.
$500 as-is OBO. Located in East Central Ohio (Akron area). Post here to
the ng or e-mail me directly
gmc(underscore)man(at)adelphia(dot)net If I don't sell it here I'm
putting it on E-Bay, thought
I'd ask here first.
