I finally got myself a 510 :lol: I had a WTB ad up on the local classifieds and this lady emailed me saying she had one she wanted to sell. She was the second owner of this 4 door sedan, column shift automatic, 83,706 original miles, tan with brown interior. Body work was done 10 years ago and the husband never got it running again after, so the body is in great shape and the car is rust free. It doesn't run, and because it has been sitting it will need some work to get it back on the road. Anyways on to the oics!

I've never seen or heard of brown interior! Nice Score!


at the end of the day its the difference of a mercedes benz driver saying he has a sophisticated awd platform and the redneck from MERICA that says he has a chevy that will pull his fat mother inlaw right off the porch no problem if you throw that sumbitch inta 4low

Thanks for all the positive feedback guys!

 

Plans?

 

Short term: Get it running driving and stopping. Carbs getting no fuel. Need brakes, brake master and probably lines. Needs carpet too.

Long term: l20 4 speed, black interior. I want it lowwww (like the slammed kind of low) but also want to auto cross it so possibly coil overs.

Thanks Ranman! It is pretty clean over all, it was never driven after it was painted so that helps, but it isn't perfect. They replaced the front passenger fender with a fiberglass one which bugs me :sneaky: and its got some dins here and there from random carport clumsiness.

This is proof that unmolested barn cars are still out there. Awesome find!

I do not agree with the plans for a black interior tho. :/ if you do change it please don't dye it. Trade for black, I'm sure someone will want to swap to brown.

Sick car!  That perfect brown interior is not to be touched.  Black is common.  And brown goes with the paint so well.  

 

But it's your car.  I'm just jealous, and telling you what I would do.
