I bought this as my "winter beater"/"emergency car" because it runs like brand new and was really cheap!
Now I have driven this for 2 years, but I only drove it on short trips (5 minutes usually-15 minutes max) So I've barely put on 3,000 miles.
It lost coolant before a few times, so I just kept refilling, thinking it had a small leak.
The coolant looked frothy white when I got it. I thought it was from a "Coolant Sealer" product they may have thrown in it... nope, it was oil the whole time!
Some times I would know the coolant was low because of the bouncing idle.
Only twice did the car get over halfway HOT on the temp guage- both times I was on LONG trips (over 1/2 hour)
-this is probably because they removed the thermostat to try a "Liquid HG sealer"
Knowing the series of all my events now, it looks like a classic BHG....
Of course, since I live in Saltland, Mn- it's completely rusted around all fenders- so the body is SHOT! and doesn't support rebuilding engine or swap.
So- What's it worth in todays market?
New signals, brakes, fuel pump, too much to list, etc...
