I am trying to sell my Fleetwood. If I get a good deal, I may sell it. Let me know what you think, or if you are interested.

Why? You sure haven't had it very long. What's a possible replacement, if you do sell?

$7k isn't bad, but might be a little too much for a '94 with 110k miles that needs a few things...

$7,000.00 or best offer. The car was previously owned by senior citizens, and from what I can tell garaged kept.

All the problems are minor, in fact I could just erase everything I said, excluding the heated seats, and no one would be any wiser. Go out and find another Fleetwood, and see if anyone would be truthful with you, I doubt it.

To me, the only thing that needs replacing is the boost valve and sleeve and rear brakes, and this car can go any where.

99.99 percent, anyone will tell you, "Runs great, no problems." Which is complete bull shit. :hide:

Very true, it'd be the same with my car--awesome shape and running, but little things very few people would ever notice like a loose trim piece on the front bumper and heated seats that stopped working too....

Any ideas about what you could replace it with?

I was thinking a Ford Escort, they are cheap and plentiful around here, good gas mileage, nimble, powerless, good A/C, I love the ride, and the way they handle, I've never driven one, but I like them.

Gas mileage is good, reliable for the most part, my sister did have some problems with hers, that reminds me, she needs a timing belt, pro's and con's!

Damn, can't give it a second chance? Too many problems? I had the same problem with my first car.

An Escort... :suspense: ...are you serious? :eek:

That would be, uh, quite a drastic change. My '93 is not perfect, and certainly does annoy the hell out of me at times, but there's no way I'd give it up for such a run of the mill little beater--EVER :tisk:

I think there is a 10 percent chance of selling the car at this point. It is annoying me right now, the whole oil leaking out of the intake pipe aggravate me a little more, I have to go buy more oil to top up, I was hoping to hold out till the next oil change within the next few weeks, oh well. I tried tightening it, and it seems to have less play, I dont want to over torque it and snap it, I will have to see how this goes, I just find it odd it picked a hell of a time to start spewing oil out, its fixed now, but I just cant stop thinking about whats next?

Within the next two months, I want to get the rear brakes fixed, $65.00 for Raybesto's heavy duty shoes, and probably some new drums, the boost valve and sleeve, and then looking into slotted rotors and high performance pads for the front. Im tempted to do a K & N mod, but worry about sucking water into the engine...There are 2 kits available, one that is similar to factory, and one that bolts directly to the intake hole requiring no pipes.

Whats wrong with the 94? OB1, older mirrors, just as good as a 94, plus, you get 3 buttons for lumbar support vs. 1 on the 95s, although mine doesnt work.




Ifin it were a 95 I'd be on it.

I have a 93 and everything works. I want a newer one to gain the LT1 AND the morror style. I want both :)

Mine also has power recline which I think a lot of these cars don't. It's pretty loaded up CD and Casette, also not seen very often. I'm sure the 95's had the multi lumbar thing as an option, no?

Haha...what a funny line. "you get 3 buttons for lumbar support vs. 1.....although mine doesn't work" :D

Mine works perfectly, but I wish the damn seat heat elements still did... :crying:

Actually, EVERY '93-96 Fleetwood, Brougham or base, had power recline.

I'm glad to hear that there's a slim chance you'll be letting it go. I sometimes wish I still had my Lincoln Mark VII (in conjunction with my Fleetwood) that I let go for similar reasons. It was always on the verge of a problem but they weren't so bad. Sounds like you have your work cut out for you, but a problem is no longer a problem once it's fixed. I say stick with it unless the car is a total lemon.

You're thinking of going from a Fleetwood to an Escort? Talk about a step down...

I paid $3800 for my V4P 94 FWB with 148K miles and only needed to replace the left front wheel bearing.

Body is not 100%, but the issues are minor to me. (okok, the right backup light fell out when I washed the car the first time, but who is counting??)

The car is worth that much money. It's always funny when someone crashes their car and the insurance company "totals it out", then a salvage yard pays $75.00 bucks to take the whole car, and makes a bundle selling parts off the car.

There is no way the car is worth $4,000.00 , some people are willing to sacrafice the price, because they dont want the car, that is simply a "Steal." My neighbor sold a 98 Dodge Intrepid with 40,000 miles for $2,500.00 bucks, the car is worth nearly $7,000.00 dollars! They bought a new Chrysler 300M HEMI! $2,000.00 has been put into the Fleetwood already, if I hadnt put $2,000.00 of work into it, would it be worth $2,000.00, hell no!

For the mirrors, you can buy one for each side, $99.00 a piece, remove the old mirros, and attach the new mirrors with some work, I know one person here said they did it.

food for thought:thumbsup:

I love the 95 Fleetwood, it's my favorite year for these bodies. I plan to get one in a few years and still hang onto my '89 as a weekend Spring/Summer car.

I think the next one I buy is going to be a '95 too. Has all the upgrades, but retains the easier to mod OBD-I electronics. Then again, I'd probably never do anything very drastic as far as mods, so a '96 would be even better.

Hopefully, in about a year and a half, I WILL have my second one... :worship:

You forget, we know how you drove that car and the problems that you have had.

I guess it was a fun ride while you had it though.
