Hello from Alaska
« on: September 03, 2020, 12:51:10 PM »
Well since I'm a glutton for punishment, I decided to pick up this old gal a few days ago. Figured for $300 I really couldn't go wrong, so at home she sits. She's an '84, comes with no title or registration, which up here in the great state really isn't too hard of something to take care of. I've already compiled some parts to give her a tune up so to speak, some parts are still coming in. Oh and she doesn't come with any keys, I have an ignition cylinder coming in for her, and I figured I could take the door and hatch locks down to the mom and pop locksmith in town to get them sorted out. Winter will be upon us here in the next month or so in the great white north, so I'm going to order some studded tires for her, figured a set of 205/75 15 should work just fine with no rubbing. Anyhow, just wanted to say hello and hope to get this ole gal back on the road and keep the miles down on the ole Cummins.

Looks like a good solid project. Welcome. I paid $400 for mine. When I got it the 4X4 didn’t work. Needed new cv shafts up front. It still plowed through a foot of snow better than anything else around.

Welcome looks like you got a nice one. I paid $250 for mine 14 years ago and until the engine lost oil pressure two years ago it was a fun car to drive and fairly reliable.
