Ok guys I know this must have come up before but I can not find an answer. Well many here may remember I have been looking for an Allante project. My neighbor has a 93 that has been garaged for some time now. I want it but the North Star failed after a rebuild so it will need an engine. I would love to buy a rebuild motor or better yet put a rebuilt 4.5 in it. If it is not a lot of rewiring then it would be a great project. Is this possible?
Well I located a place that have North Star's rebuilt and shipped for $3200 + 300 core. That is a remarkable price and they give a 3 year unlimited mileage warranty. Now I have to try to see what kind of deal I can get on his car. I really wanted a white car and a 93 because of the brake upgrades and the fact that more parts are shared with other GM cars.
How could I have been so wrong....the car is actually a 91 and he said the issue is that the transmission was slipping and that his key will now work after the car sat a long time. He purchased the car new but it has been garaged for at least 10 years now. I used to always cream over it even though the rims he had on it were a little to big for my taste. Does 3K sound good? I was excited about a 93 but a 91 has the exclusive parts that may make fixing it an issue. What do you guys think?
i wouldnt worry too much about the slipping tranny. Mine was operating horribly. I changed the fluid, replaced the filter and put in a new vacuum modulator and it GREATLY improved the performance. It was one of the top 5 improvements I made. Use a good quality fluid.
The car is very clean inside and out. It was his baby so he spent money on it and kept it up. When he purchased his M class in about 98/99 he garaged it. he then purchased a 7 series in about 2004 and still never drove the car again. I worry about being able to get parts for the 91 model that is my real issue. With it sitting up does that mean the brakes will be gone now?
