I didn't really put any thought into listing this here before but I will anyway-
My brother has an 89 Caprice Classic. Car is 305 TBI, black, burgundy interior, power everything, etc. It is the box one with the updated nose header panel, sport mirrors, etc.
The car has 160K miles on it I believe, I'm really not sure. The previous owner was a cop in my town and had the car for ages, but it wasn't a cruiser and isn't a 9c1. Definitely a fixer upper. It was his main car a few years ago, then he took it off the road in '08 when he got his Roadmaster. Had to put it back on the road this year because his RM got hit. At that time he put in a new ECM, a new radiator, new fuel pump relay, and a couple other things I can't remember. The car also has a new (last year) starter (I think), new ps line, new fuel line, new exhaust system w/cat (that needs 1 donut gasket IIRC) and I forget what else. Basically there are a lot of new parts in it.
What I know it needs:
Fuel pump. That died and he took it off the road. I checked the FP relay, that's fine and my truck runs with it installed. If you shoot starting fluid in the TB the car will run for a bit then dies.
The car is rusty, it will need new front fenders put on, they are rotted to the point of being useless. Has rust spots all over basically, but most are surface rust.
The power antenna stalk broke out of the socket. The fender has to come off to fix the antenna, but they have to come off anyway...soo....
The headliner is falling down and was stapled back up.
It has no hubcaps on it, because my brother borrowed a set of 74 Chevy ones from me when he lost one of the factory ones (it had those cop-car style full wheel covers on it)
The end of the multifunction switch for the wipers/blinkers fell off, and to turn the wipers on you have to stick the piece back into the stalk. Still works...
The front outside door handles are getting floppy and should be swapped out.
Probably other stuff I'm forgetting but that's what I know of.
This car ran good and reliable but seemed like it needed a set of plugs and a basic TBI tune up (wires, cap, etc). My brother never did since he got the car, all he did was change the oil and fix broken things.
The interior is pretty nice, aside from the headliner and the dash pad is cracked. The door panels are very nice and the seats are mint. The carpet is pretty damn good too IIRC. The driver's seat needs that bolt where the backrest hinges on the bottom, it snapped right when the car was taken off the road.
My brother wants 400 bucks for the car just because he put about 800 into it just getting it put back on the road this year. If anyone here is interested for whatever reason feel free to let me know, it would be a great parts car if you needed one.
I was actually going to try and fix this car if my brother wanted to just give it to me, I was thinking of putting a pump in it, tuning it up, replacing the fenders, then painting the whole car satin black Rustoleum with a foam roller or something and using it as a winter car. Still might but I'd need some input on that...
This is the car:
