I bought this car at the end of January of 2013.
This car was in Pennsylvania before we bought
it. We have copy of previous owner’s car title of this car. This Pennsylvania
Department of Transportation title copy is dated 7/20/11 and it has odometer
miles showing as 016182 on that date. i.e. 16,182 miles. This confirms the low mileage reading.
This car now has a clear/clear Oregon Vehicle
Certificate of Title.
I believe this car has never been wrecked,
including anything minor.
My mechanic says this car is very clean in the
engine bay and the under side of the car it was very clean with no rust and little road wear. That was the first thing I had checked since the car came to us from Pennsylvania.
In 2013, we paid a professional auto detail shop to
have the under side of this car power washed and then a preventative undercoating was applied. We decided to do this to
prevent any rust from happening ………the coating that was applied provides an
added barrier between the underside of the car and the road/rocks/debris, which
keeps the inside of the car ride slightly quieter, too.
All items below were done at a professional
mechanic shop with ASE certified mechanics and all work is one year guaranteed at nationwide NAPA Auto Centers.

2013 – I decided that now matter how much I
hand washed the front bumper, that it had a dirty white look/tone that was like tea
stained teeth. So I had a local auto body and paint shop take off the front
bumper and factory bumper stripes off of the bumper and then had it repainted
whiter shade to better match the actual color of the car's original paint. Over twenty two
years the front plastic bumper over 16K miles of travel had faded and darkened a different shade of color than the car. So I had the
front bumper removed, then repainted and re-striped to a more uniform color look. The front bumper
(or this car) has never been wrecked or dinged. The front bumper is the only
part on the car that is not the original paint. But it looks better now than
before I had got it re-painted.
2013 - New front license plate frame/support piece for the front license plate - we also had it painted the exact white color of front bumper.

replaced two custom made heim joint shifter cables, drilled oem fasteners,
modified and fabricated connections as needed, adjusted and performance test as
required to confirm integrity of repair. Replaced 4 new clips.
2013 - Brake Inspection – test drove and removed
all four wheels, inspected integrity of brake fluid, inspected master cylinder for
leakage, Inspected brake lines front and rear, inspected for brake leakage,
investigated rear auto adjusters and adjustment.
2013 – resealed shift gear
Car has never been smoked in. In fact, I think
it still slightly has that ‘new GM car smell’ inside.
Car is something that the former owner
represented to be in mint condition, etc….the reality truth is that this is a very nice
original condition car.....but is not perfect mint condition. But very nice.
Previous owner also made claim that this low mile rare car will increase in value over time. I am not sure
if that is the case or not. I do know these are real hard to find like this in real good condition with such low
actual miles. But what I have learned is when you do get a nice low miles car that is older, most need new tires right away and then more (see
above items I have done in 2013, for example) to get the car actually functioning and operating
as well a it looks and feels.
No windshield cracks, no dash cracks that I
see. I have brought this car up a level or two from the level it was at when I
got it at the 16K mileage level.
Have the factory floor mats.
I do drive the car on occasional sunny afternoons every
week or two just to keep everything working and flowing well. So there may be
up to a hundred or two hundred more miles added, depending on if and when it
There are two 1992 factory Chevy Lumina Service Manuals/books in the trunk. These books from 1992, book 1 and book 2, are
each a couple inches thick. These books are specific to the Chevy Z34 model and each have tons of illustrations and literally
spells out every detail part of this car’s body and engine. Great for future
repair shop quick reference, or for plan B reference if you/they don’t have the info
electronically as plan A.
Original factory owner’s manual booklet from GM is in
the glove box.
The car comes with three pairs of original sets
of GM keys – ignition and doors/trunk keys.
All lights work, everything works as it should, down to the unused cigarette lighter.
Reason for selling : an unforeseen recent IRS tax bill is due for us this year, so we are selling our collector car. Absolutely hate to see it go, was hoping to keep and enjoy this for a long time. But IRS is needing our $ this year soon, so car must go up for sale to raise funds. No trades.
Our family has invested over $15,000 in this car in total. The $13,900 ebay 'Buy it now price' sells this car for us at a loss of a couple thousand $ when all is said and done. We'll make no profit on this eBay sale compared to the grand total $ we have invested in the car to date.
