FS: 88 LeSabre T-type Tucson AZ car

Post by vidsal » Mon Jun 29, 2015 1:28 am

The LeSabre T-type from Tucson AZ is officially up for sale (middle car in the white trio on FB now in Santa Fe, NM.) It's a great project car for someone that doesn't want to deal with rust. Unfortunately it will need serious interior work, weatherstripping etc. I have $2400 into it, but I'm negotiable especially for someone in the FB group or on the LeSabre T-type forum board. If you're super serious, let me know and we'll go into more details. I won't sugar coat anything about it. Even though it has 62k miles, the car was outside much of the time in Tucson.

Sorry for the delay in responding. The site was down it seems. Here are the pictures in my post on the AACA site. No login is needed to see the images. Btw, I'm approaching 63k mi now.

I dropped the price to $1900. It's possible I might be able to transport it at cost to points between NM and WI before the holidays.

Sold. Only took a few hours from my repost to craigslist. I hope the new local buyer is happy with the car. He said when he was born he was brought home from the hospital in a Grand National....backseat babyseat. I'm sure he'll be looking for interior parts like dash, door panels, visors etc. I can probably get anyone selling that stuff in touch with him.

So this car was advertised by the guy that bought it from me as a non-running car over a week ago. I went to look at it today. Seems like a possible bad computer. I bought it back since I can probably use the rims/tires. It's a lot cheaper now if anyone is interested. Make an offer. He put about 1000 mi on it.

Quick update for those not reading FB. After bringing this car home I installed a temp used ignition module coil pack from my parts car and was able to start the Tucson car. For those not reading the whole story...I sold it last fall, the new owner drove it for a few months, couldn't start it and I bought it back. I've got a new module/coil pack that I'll install before selling. If interested, let me know. $1250 is the asking price.

When I bought this car back the driver's power window wasn't working. I recently replaced the tape, regulator guide and motor. It now works very well. I haven't put the car back up on CL for sale yet.

Apparently the site was down and I couldn't update this....I sold the Tucson car for a 2nd time within a few weeks of advertising it again to a guy that was going to use it as a daily driver. I actually saw it again in a parking lot not long ago and my wife says she saw it driving around a week ago....good news. I put a note in the glovebox to call me if a future owner needs to sell it again.
