That's awesome Jim!

Can't wait to see it as the progress continues. The two times I've seen that car, I just couldn't believe how nice it was even with the smashed up fender.

Can't wait until it's finished :D

ya this car was always pampered, been in the family
for years, mostly highway miles, and always garaged!!

it runs as good as it did back at 70k
it will make someone happy, at a decent price too!!

hows the silver machine doing?

she's running great. Replaced that bum muffler. Still has the exhaust leak but I kinda like the way it sounds. Been a real solid car so far, I've been taking it on road trips and no real problems.

Might have to do some front suspension work, it makes a clunck from the passenger side when turning hard a low speeds (like parking etc) but hopefully that won't be anything bad.

Either one would be awesome to own, I've always wanted a black one of these cars.

as much as I love this car, I cant justify bringing it to hawaii, since
I already have the 95 trip/blk and the viper going with me

this car has all new brakes delco/opti,water pump wires/plugs etc etc etc
runs real nice ice cold ac, ok maybe I dont want to sell it lol.....

Take that one and sell the other if I were you. But then again, I'm a very sentimental person.

well since I got the triple black one I have been hooked on it
and its low miles , the ol man always wanted a triple black version since most of his cars were that scheme , I know he would be on board with the move to the 95, I have a lot of his other possessions, he left me so I would like to find it a good home when done
here it was a month before that scumball hit it...

How many miles are on it??? I might be interested in it for the right price.

thefleetwoodguy
06-08-10, 06:21 PM
the fleetwood has 180k, which is still below avg for the year
that mileage might scare some, but these motors can do 300k if maintained
and this one was , oil change every 2500 miles,
anyone whos seen it, can tell you it could pass for 60k
I am open to all offers on it, I can leave the chrome wheels on,
or a set of mint cond fact alloys,
anyone who's had any dealings with me will tell you
I am v/fair, the car needs nothing mechanically
make an offer

looks like it's in good hands. straight cuts and clean welds.

finish work should be minimal. are you only ganna paint that area? because the rest of the paint looked pretty flawless

thefleetwoodguy
06-09-10, 03:38 PM
Matt
were going to paint the quarter and extension
unless someone makes me an offer
as is, Im not looking for much for the car
only because it has a few miles on it, it runs as good as my low miles 95

nice man, if I hadn't bought this silver beast from you I'd jump at the chance to own that one!

I've always wanted a black 93 to 96 styled fleetwood. Ah well, maybe in the future I can have this silver one painted.

Stingroo

I want the silver one. :(

I need more monies. :lol:

as I suspected the first guy who looked
at the car, bought it, I will update the pics this week when we shoot
the paint, just wanted to let you guys know
its off the market
since there was some interest in
it from a couple members.................Jim

I hope it goes to a good home and stays around the forum. :)

When you go to Hawaii I'm in trouble! How ever will I find an awesome FWB after college? (Or maybe even sooner). :( lol

outsider

Sting, I still got that Silver beast! By the time you're out of college I may have moved on to something else ;)

although I have to say, this silver 95 is soooo awesome. We took it on a road trip, 3 couples in it...from South Portland to Boston and back...doing like 80 to 90 mph...

we were all comfortable, not squished at all, and we used about 10 gallons gas total. can't beat that with a stick.

That's not bad at all. Done the ride to Boston from Kennebunk many times. lol
