stored '87 GTA all original 26,000 miles needs locks, tires, hose, fluids

See thread
http://www.gtasourcepage.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=53028

Car was broken into in 1998, both door locks pulled without damage to doors or paint, and steering column broken. In storage locker since.

Fire red, tan velour interior. The velour is all perfect, looks like new. Both interior and exterior were perfect, with the interior always protected by towels and mats. Only imperfection (besides the lock damage): a teenise bit of spider-web in the paint on part of the wing (I don't know the details). Injected vette-type 5.7 350. WS6 suspension. Euro mirrors, whatever that means. LED digital dash. Some kind of Bose alarm system (I didn't know Bose made an alarm???). It is all original, inclduing the original 16" eagle tires which are pretty worn out. It has about 26,000 miles on it. Owner hasn't seen it in 10 years, I'm going to look this weekend and take pictures. Engine should still be very good, really low miles.

Storage locker company in Las Vegas now says tires are flat and a hose leaked radiator fluid; they want to buy it but I know I can do better. Frank will have to get a copy of his Florida title, shouldn't be any problem. He's letting me handle the sale for a percentage.

If you are serious and want to go look at it with me this weekend in Las Vegas, call me (562) 477-1193. Otherwise it goes on eBay. I would love to take this project on myself, but right now I can't.

If you want it this weekend and can take possession, we can discount the price by another $180 so I don't have to store it.

The only thing I have seen are some interior photos. The dash has been damaged. He is having some issues with the hood not opening.

I put on new tires. The only thing stolen was the burglar alarn, and they cracked a piece of the dash ripping that out, so I got a new dash panel to replace that. The inside window sills are cracked. There's a piece of plastic behind the steering wheel that's missing. I'm inclined to make it run.

In the storage locker dusty, and after bringing it home (haven't really even cleaned it yet, just hosed it off). I have all the black plastic pieces for the wheels (lug nut covers and center hub covers w/ emblems), I just didn't put them back on yet. No keys yet... Hood opens fine now, don't know what was stuck before.

Looks like it is still a nice car! Just so you know, you have the wheels switched around. The wider looking wheels are supposed to be in the front. Everyone says if you put the back wheels on the front they rub on the tie rods. All the wheels are the same size, but different offsets.

I noticed the center caps are missing. 87 GTA's had the gold bird center caps. Easy to find on ebay with metal re-enforced clips. I hope to see more photos of it.

Looks fantastic, I remember Hawk's carrying the 87 center caps, not sure if they still do.

I've got the black center caps for the wheels, with good emblems, but the plastic tangs that hold them on are busted on quite a few.

Are the wheels really on wrong? The previous owner also mentioned that the front and back offsets were different...I can't tell without removing and measuring.
