1980 Oldsmobile Toronado XSC coupe. This is a FWD v8 car. It has an automatic transmission, a 307ci engine, and 87,789 miles. It was restored years ago and repainted. The front end was customized to fit a nice, big, Cadillac grille that looks great!

The engine runs good and the car drives good. The transmission shifts well. No known major leaks or mechanical issues.

Since the restore, the car has now developed some rust in 4 main areas. On the exterior bottom portion of the doors the rust has started under the paint and the paint is breaking off. I do not believe the panels need replaced if you have a decent amount of skill with body work. But they is an opinion. The front pillars have bad rust at the bottom section you can see in the pics. I would repair with screen and bondo for a quick fix but metal would be best. Both of these issues are on both sides of the car. As you can also see the bumper inserts are missing. The floors and trunk is very solid. The whole car is very solid excluding the rust issues I just mentioned. The vinyl top has come unglued and needs replaced or removed. There is solid metal under it so simply remove the glue and repaint. I was going to do that and paint the whole roof a different color… maybe white or off white? Black?

The interior is now cracked all up from sun… the car sat some time. Seat covers would be a life saver. It’s a really cool old car… but is no show car by any means.

All the glass is good, the power windows work. The power antenna works as does the stereo. The hood requires 2 people to open as one person has to hold the release lever and the other wiggles the hood. The tires have a lot of tread but are older. The right front brake caliper sticks sometimes and needs replaced or rebuilt. No check engine lights or trouble lights are on. The exhaust may have a leak somewhere as it has a little hum to the sound but it is not all loud like it has a large hole. This is a 2 owner car. It was cared for well for a long time and then was left to sit.

If there are any questions. Call or text me at 304-283-5817

Local pick up only. Cash purchase with a deposit required via paypal if you win. No reserve. Clean and clear WV title. Immediate $100 deposit at end of auction. The remainder must be paid in cash within 3 days and you can let the car stay here as long as 10 days if you need to make arrangements.

Honest sale!

This Or That: 1980 Oldsmobile 442 vs. 1989 BMW 635CSi [w/poll]

Thu, 09 Oct 2014

The last time I roped a coworker into an automotive debate, I lost. Resoundingly, I might add. Still, 2,385 voters chose to cast their lots for the Fiat 500 Abarth, as opposed to 5,273 choosing the Ford Fiesta ST, and so I can rest easy in the knowledge that at least 30 percent of you, dear readers, see things my way. I still like to think we have more fun, too.
My loss in the first round of our This or That series, in which two Autoblog editors pick sides on any given topic and then attempt to explain why the other is completely wrong, didn't stop me from picking another good-natured fight, this time with Senior Editor Seyth Miersma. Last time, our chosen sides were eerily similar in design, albeit quite different in actual execution. This time, our vehicular peculiarities couldn't seemingly fall any further from one another: A 1980 Oldsmobile 442 wouldn't seem to match up in comparison to a 1989 BMW 635CSi.
How did we come up with such disparate contenders? Simple, really. Seyth and I mutually agreed to choose a car that's currently for sale online. It had to be built and sold in the 1980s, and it had to be a coupe. The price cap was set at $10,000. The fruits of our searching labors will henceforth be disputed, with Seyth on the side of the Germans, and myself arguing in favor of the Rocket Olds. Am I setting myself up for another lopsided loss?

GM recalling 8.4M cars, 8.2M related to ignition problems

Mon, 30 Jun 2014

General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.

eBay Find of the Day: 1976 GMC Motorhome is a jolly green giant

Wed, 18 Jun 2014

If you have a need to relive the 1970s, then here is the vehicle for you. This groovy blast from the past is a 1976 GMC Motorhome currently for auction in Florida on eBay Motors, and it is one green machine - just not in the modern sense.
The seller claims that this beast has had just two owners and has covered a mere 61,308 miles in its decades on the road. It's reportedly never been restored or repainted and comes with all of the necessary books and manuals. A 7.5-liter (455-cubic-inch) Oldsmobile V8 with a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission powering the front wheels propels this far-out RV, and the double set of rear wheels out back use a self-leveling air suspension to provide a cushy ride.
The purported low miles and good condition really make this GMC a stand out, though. The exterior combination of lime stripes and beige with just a touch of green is like nothing else on the road today. Plus, the polished bumpers and wheels make it all pop. Inside, it's even better with monochromatic green upholstery and shag carpet. It features everything you'd ever need on a long trip, including a bathroom, kitchenette and lots of seating. The only hint of modernization is an HD TV next to the stove, but its size is a perfect fit for the hole there.
