Year and Trim: 97 SE, Anniversary Trim
I don't know if there's a proper place to post for sale items, so if there is my apologies and point me in the right direction.

It with great sadness that I must part with my beloved 97 but its time to say goodbye. I would like it to go to a good home rather than the junk yard.

The good:

Dark Gray Interior is in really good shape with all leather and the cushions are still firm
all of the door panels are complete and in great shape
Glass all good
Hood and trunk decks are in good shape - Silver
rims good
Transmission rebuilt about 25k ago
AC works great, no leaks
power windows work just fine
power antenna motor works but needs a new mast
headlights and taillights are clear and not broken or crazed
two new in box sub frame mounts are included along with the two newer ones already on the car
Doors are all solid with only a little rusting at the lower fold point of the door skin. Treated with miracle paint and not spreading and also not visible from the outside
newish fuel pump
no trouble codes
passed emissions test 1 month ago
ABS works fine
Radiator recored a few years ago
spare parts - wheel bearing, rotors and grill assembly and a few more odds and ends
axle shafts are good and not leaking or making noise
rubber is all solid, no water leakage

The bad:

front sub-frame rotten
low oil pressure when warmed up 30-ish minutes
found remains of parts of what I assume is from a lifter in the oil pan
loud Lifter tick, I'm assuming 1 from the sound of things
Rusty rockers and front fenders
tires are fair
missing 2 middle sub frame mounts

I would like $250 for it so it can go to a good home and play with the other Bonneville's on the farm.....

I just don't have the heart to part the car out myself and want it to go where it can do some good. There's a lot of good and newer parts, a bargain price for what you are getting.

The car does move under it's own power but it really should be towed or dollied to it's new home due to the lifter issue. I'm happy to assist in dropping in a new lifter if someone wants to take a chance and drive it home. No guarantees but it might work. Oil pressure drops down to the point of starting the chimes at idle but never goes above 20 when hot at speed. When it's cold it's near 40.

I live just West of Chicago and will send pictures to whomever would like them if you e-mail me at rlazars@yahoo.com

Thanks,

Rich
