PostSubject: '95 DCM RMW   Sat Feb 07, 2015 11:57 pm

Is anyone interested in a '95 DCM RMW for $3,200?

I am thinking of getting rid of mine.  Was my daily driver until I started driving my truck.  I did all of the following to it about one year ago:

New front rotors, pads, bearings, grease caps.
Fixed broken rollers on two windows so they actually work
Installed K&N filter, F-body elbow, "Home Depot" intake w/ Swiss cheese airbox
Deleted air intake "baffle" i.e. "home plate" and also "first base"
New power steering hoses
Cleaned and painted core support
New plugs, wires, high temp wire sleeving
Deleted AIR pump
Removed heat shields from exhaust manifolds; cleaned and painted them
Had three broken bolts in two cylinder heads fixed
Installed new exhaust manifold gaskets, stainless ARP manifold bolts
Degreased/painted parts of engine/accessories as I disassembled stuff for above work
Installed new intake gasket
Replaced ALL old rotten rubber vacuum lines with high temp silicone lines
Disassembled throttle body, cleaned in ultrasonic tank, reassembled with fresh gaskets
Wrapped EGR tube in high temp sleeving to protect back of intake manifold gasket
Sent fuel injectors to Witchhunter for complete rebuilding
Installed new stock replacement cats
After the cats, ran 2.5" mandrel bent Jegs/Heartthrob system
Removed rear bumper cover and bumper to clean, etch, and paint it
Installed new (hard-ish to find) gas tank straps w/new hardware
New fuel filter
New fuel pump and sending unit
New rear springs (Moog CC625 IIRC) and rubber insulators
New Gabriel front and rear shocks
Cleaned and painted swaybar and installed with new poly bushings and endlinks
Cleaned and painted accessible areas of floorpans to kill/retard rust creep
Removed stock air-shock air pump
Replaced oil adapter gasket to stop nasty leak
Oil change/installed new Fumoto drain valve

Has some dents, dings, rust in rear wheel wells (inner, not the lip) and the spare tire well.  At least one bubble in a door jamb.  Belt and wood grain trim has been removed for refinishing, but never refinished.  

Let me know if we should talk.

The snow has melted enough that this could almost be shoveled out and driven away without much effort, now.

I don't know that I have time to play with this vehicle anymore. How about $2800? That's what I paid for it before doing any of the listed work to it.

So you say that the belt trim and wood grain was removed and never finished, and you posted a non current photo? Interesting.

When the ad was posted in February, I believe the best "current" photo of the car that I would have been able to obtain would make it look like I was selling a large mogul.

I should have some time on Saturday to wash it and get some pictures. I just put a battery in it the other day to move it for the first time in months.

Finally got my butt in gear to rinse it off (it's still dirty) and get some pics.  I have a video of it starting up and driving away, but am having trouble getting that into Photobucket.

One heater core hose broke the other day at the plastic connector in the middle of its length.  I haven't fixed it yet.

Motivated but not desperate to sell it.  Could certainly use the cash for other stuff.















































Once the car turns past the barn, there's nothing left to see but the video keeps rolling until I was able to get back to the camera.

Nice whip!

Is that a Gilson lawn tractor in the background of one of the pictures?

Thank you. That tractor is a simplicity 7117 that I got as a project. New motor but needs wiring. No time for that, either!

Nice. It has the same color scheme as a Gilson so that threw me.

GLWS!

Just to update the price details: if someone offered me $2,000 cash, I'd take it.  Maybe it's not worth that to anyone here at this time, but that's my current bottom line.  I'd rather keep the car and enjoy it, but don't have time to work on it and could apply the cash to other things.

I had a rough time selling my OCC, and it had a TON of work done to it, and was SUPER clean.

It's usually only wagon guys that want a wagon (pretty small market)

Probably fair for what you are asking, but the biggest thing that is going to hurt you is the missing woodgrain moldings, kinda makes it look dumpy even if it's not.

I really like it. No cash tho. The missing trim does kinda kill it tho.

In my biased opinion, the car is priced attractively. $2k is short money for any decent car, and this is a decent car. I paid $2800 for the car with trim on it, but needing that laundry list of stuff that I took care of.

I don't find the missing trim to make the car look bad, except up close when you can see the trim holes and studs.

Were I in the market for such a car, I'd much rather buy one that needed trim refinishing and reinstallation than one that needed all of the work I mentioned doing to this vehicle in my list in the original post. A lot of expensive, crappy on-your-back under jackstands stuff has been taken care of. Owners of these cars tend to work on them, anyway, so trim seems like small potatoes.

But hey, the market will tell me if the car is priced right. I start with the forums, then move to Craigs, where I'd likely get more but need to deal with more nonsense.

No doubt that it's completely worth what you're asking, or even started with. I did miss the part about the trim still available tho. I thought it had been removed with no intention to put it back.

It's the best color wagon and a Buick wagon to boot. Only wagon I'd buy! As I said before, I'd give you cash if I had it. (Unless you take trades or payment plans hahaha)

This thing is still just sitting next to my barn. It should have a different home, I think.

If anyone wants to make an offer on it, that will be cool.
