    Interested in rear bumper , heater/A/C control panel, body mount areas of trunk floor, battery tray, right front inner fender, right side of radiator support if its not rusty from the battery, and maybe part of the rear frame behind the rear wheels. If the parts are good I could come cut them out if your not interested in that much work. Also many guys are looking for the front floor pans as the fit Lesabre,Wildcat, and Estate Wagon. Pm me if interested.

    Hugger,
    I don't know if I'll go to the trouble to pull the whole engine but I most likely will get the intake & all parts on it & any other bracket, pulley, or nice pieces under the hood. Would you want the complete engine & trans?

    Iron Maiden,
    I forgot my steering wheel puller but did grab the horn button. I'll go back tomorrow to get the wheel & many more parts. On first quick inspection the wheel looks to be uncracked & very nice. Not sure what a fair price would be yet?

    Buick sky,
    Sending a pm shortly.

    69hellcat,
    I'll see what I can pull tomorrow & get back to you.

    I pulled all these parts yesterday & everything came apart like the car was 1 year old. No broken or rusty fasteners, no cut wires or damage to any of the items. Some of them need a little clean up from the muddy junkyard but almost all are in excellent condition, except for one black seat belt buckle. It has a little surface rust on it. Both door windlace pieces have a crack in them also.

    Let me grab the shoulder belts in the morning & take a good look at everything & I'll let you know. Thinking about keeping them for one of my cars.

    I would like to have the engine/trans but its 8hr drive. I would be tempted to take a gas can and battery and see what it sounds like, if it purrs like 34k mi should id be pulling it, cleaning it up and with what they charge for engines you got room to make a buck there

    I'd at least want to put a breaker bar on the crank bolt to see that the engine isn't stuck. A good parts harvest

    Smokey15 So old that I use AARP bolts.

    There was someone, in another thread, that was looking to replace a V6/200 with a 350/350. The engine/trans would work for them depending on shipping.

    That may be the '400' emblem under 'LeSabre' on the quarter=THM400 trans

    I pried the radiator from around the fan today & was able to grab the belts & turn the engine over a bit. I checked the oil & it is a bit dirty but no sign of coolant. The yard owner told me not to take anything off the engine or trans. as he wants to sell them together for $600.00. Not a bad deal for a 34,xxx mile engine I would say.
    I grabbed a few more bits & pieces from the interior & pulled the disc brake assemblies & the metering(hold off) valve. Another sign the car has low miles is it still had the 2 piece original rotors on it. I'd like to get $300.00 for the complete brake set up or best offer.

    Flaky rust, mostly from the battery tray. I did not see any rust through but can't guarantee it.

    The bumper needs a very good cleaning but chrome is still pretty nice under all that film.

    Worst rust on the whole car, passenger side floor right by the wheel well. The driver side is not as advanced as this yet.

    Drachen,
    Working on deals for them both at the moment. If either fall through I'll let you know.

    Old Dutch gave Worthington a heck of a discount on that unit! $900+ on a $5000 car.

    interested in the window crank handles and maybe the mummified animal carcass? Is it a coon or what?

    You pay the shipping & the mystery animal is yours!! :) I'll put you in line for the window cranks. I'm leaning towards coon by the hand like paws & the not quite long & narrow enough skull of a possum.
