    Found this at at great prices and in pretty much factory superb condition. Drove over 4 hours to look at her, minor cosmetic issues. Surface undercarriage rust. Fired right up and runs strong. She made the drive back from the foothills of Missouri to southern Illinois.

    Yep, pretty pleased with her so far. A few minor issues but nothing major. Intermittent cruise control, she is pretty loose in the steering, dash lights need replaced.

    heck your lucky the cruise works at all on a vehicle this old lol. it might just need the cables lubed up or something small. it should be pretty easy to tighten up the front end on these things. there is not really much too them. rockauto can sometimes be a pretty cheap to get parts from as long as you can get all your parts shipped from 1 location. i do it all the time. the dash lights are probably the easiest fix you got to do.
