I'm going to alienate 1/3 of you right now, hopefully entertain another 1/3, and actually inform the rest enough to decide if its the right car for them.

Mechanics special in the title implies it does not run. You would be correct in assuming that. YOU WILL NEED A MEANS TO TOW IT HOME.
read the FULL ad before you text with a low ball offer.

The main repair needed is it needs a new distributor, ($150), and to have the timing cover put back on,( $15 kit). The mechanic suspected a crank sensor, but that checked out OK. I've been told the V-6 is a non-interference engine, but as long as the timing cover is off, I would suggest at least a new timing belt. ( $35 belt only, $250 for the water pump and complete kit) The drivers side mirror is broken, but they're pretty easy and cheap to fix( $70). (Flex tape probably would work too.)

2nd owner car. ( 1st owner was my grandfather) We've owned this car for ten years, and its been a great car. My wife drove it for the first eight years we had it, and my adult daughter the last two.

Our mechanic diagnosed the problem, and after considering the shop estimate to repair( $800 at their rate), we decided it was time to let it go, and for our daughter to have her own car, (and all the expenses that come with them).

The car has power windows, locks, mirrors, AM/FM/cassette,and very little rust, but a few minor body dings and cracks in the bumpers. the tires are decent, but I am missing one wheel cover, and I cracked a tail light plowing around it.

The engine does not burn any oil, but there is an oil leak that requires you to check the level every so often. I would usually need to add a little oil every 2-3 tank fills. I have too many projects going on right now to take this on. Offers will be considered face to face, only after you've looked at the car, cash in hand, in front of the car works wonders for your negotiating position.
Thank you
