1978 Oldsmobile Starfire GTOriginal 1978 Olds Starfire GT. Believed to be 49,000 original miles. Bought from the original owners grandson. A Florida-Arizona garage kept beauty. NO RUST anywhere, original paint, inside and out. Has the 231 V6 AT,PS,PB,AC (inop) Gauges. All work except AC, and fuel gauge. Headliner is sagging and needs some interior work, but presents well as Is. Heater and ac/defrosters inop. It has a external fuel pump conversion and the harness for the gauge was not reinstalled, gauge did work prior. This car originally had a in tank fuel pump, it has since been modified to external. New owner may want to change that. The car does have a few minor dings and scratches. When I bought her she was sitting about 5 years. I have replaced, water pump, hoses, belts, new fluids, fuel pump, motor mounts as they were sagging from sitting, rear main seal, valve cover gaskets. The guy who did the major work says the engine was clean and after working an seeing the car was sure the 49,000 miles are original. I also had the fuel tank clean and the carb rebuilt for good measure. The car runs great, very peppy, steering good, brakes good. The idle is not perfectly smooth, due to the EGR has been disabled. Exhaust is loud,one of the pipes has a hole. The car is a even fire, I have also replaced, plugs, cap, rotor and wires. She is a nice little 1970's cruiser, and more rare than a 1950's car, as almost all have rusted out or in junkyards.
NOTE: I have since replaced the old RWL tires they were 15 years old, New tires dot's are from 2/17. (SEE PICS) new tires are the black ones, car does not have the RWL tires anymore.
Car runs great, very peppy and fun to drive.
TO CLARIFY: The vehicle no longer has the RWL tires, they were replaced due to age.
