I know, i know

https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/ct...693989956.html

I know i post craigslist ads often. Lol but take a look. Thats the the year i have been wanting! I cant justify getting though. I have a 1985 already. But i would take out my 200 4r and put it in this one so i could have overdrive. Man i want it.

my 85 had the same problem with not firing. So i think i may know whats wrong.

I saw that yesterday. I thought about buying it for the wheels. They're 5x5" bolt pattern and I think they're knock-off rims. New Daytons run $1000s per.

All I can say is if you want it or think that you want it; buy it. All you'd be out is time and effort. You can always scrap it. If you snooze, you loose.

Probably not. The 1977-1985 Delta 88s normally got the 5x4.75" bolt pattern and small (10.75" rotors, 9.5" x 2" drums) brakes. Only cars with HD brakes and suspension (police, taxi, and 403 cars, and all wagons and Ninety Eights) got the 5x5" bolt pattern and the big brakes (12" rotors and 11' x 2" drums).

Perhaps. It would be worth a look. Too bad there are so many other things I could spend $350 on... another automatic watch, a pyrometer or spark adapter for my truck, new suspension parts for my Olds... the list goes on. Actually, I might not even want to consider knock-off rims.

They require "adapters" and we all know my feelings on wheel adapters.

It is definitely still worth the look. In my case, in the near future most of that stuff will get changed anyway. I just really like the 77-79 body styling over the 80s.
