Im in the market for another sc. I had found one for $700. the body and interior are in amazing shape, but i think the engine is shot. the guy said that he blew the head gaskets 3yrs ago and its been sitting ever since. well when I went and looked at it he told me that he overheated it down the freeway and it quit running but it started right back up after it cooled down. do you guys think its worth snatching up and also what do i have to look forward to when i start tearing it apart?
Look for a replacement engine, or repair the head and hope the bottom-end is ok. It is all about how bad you want one. The cars are getting harder and harder to find, especially a decent one minus the engine of coarse.
Well, for $700...you can always get it and if need be....rebuild the motor . Might be a little PITA, but they are hard to find and for $700 I think it's worth it. I just bought one('89 SC) last May for $3,800....and it only had 42,000 miles (all original)....body / under carriage needs alittle TLC (it was obvious it sat in the grass for a few years), but the interior is imaculent.
I think the question is....is it worth it to you...even if it may need a little work?
The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese!!!
i would check around, craigslist.com, sccoa....700 plus ? to fix, head gaskets job is 700-900, unles you do it yourself, i got a one owner 93, 160,000, real nice shape, 1100 bucks, and a 90, good shape 550 bucks, both run great,, plus another one(93) for 350, bad tranny, starts, sounds good and i seen more on craigslist in my area, from 1400-3200 good shape and running,
a SC insures that in time you'll be a very knowledgable mechanic.[/QUOTE]
That is gospel right there
I have two and a half sc s .. if it was over heated to the point if shut off >> I would be concerned that the block might have dmg.. The guy will take less I guarantee it. If you wanna spend money and like getting dirty a beat up 20 yr old sc will fit the bill.. its fun to trade and work and finally get it going for me and they ride great and have some get up and go .. Its not a race car but fun..
I have a roller want that ?
wow that sux. i have a very small coolant leak. i have to add like 1/2 gal. of coolant every 2-3 months lol
i cant pinpoint the leak anywhere. im scared to say headgasket lmao. knock on wood
