"The car has a problem with engine sludge. It does run and will start but it needs major repairs in order to be used regularly. Also, the paint is peeling off of the car in several places."
"Throttle cable sticky, leaking differential fluid, cracked windshield, lots of new parts, can provide receipts, excellent condition inside and very good on the outside, in garage out of the elements."
"It's been sitting in the driveway since we moved in March and, with the fact that we have moved three times in two years, the title went missing. We were planning on selling it but, without the title, it's hard to sell to a private party. Therefore, just having someone come pick it up would be a lot less stressful. "
"It was a drag car I tore down. I do have the transmission to go with it but the motor will not. It is must the chassis with an adjustable rear end, 3.73 gears, holley fuel pump. I am junking it to make room. I just need it gone."
"There was a mystery problem a year ago. I hung onto it in hopes of fixing it but I just need the cash now. There is a little mold inside from sitting but otherwise it's a nice looking rig. After I bought this car from a dealership, I got about three weeks out of it. "
