I am hoping some of the gurus here can tell me if this is a good deal or not.
I found locally that seems like a good deal to be a donor for my 3800SC swap. What should I check? I barely know my way around the GTP mods, so I can use all the advice I can get.
Car has clearly been in a couple accidents over the years.
Body is pretty rough (3 out of 10)
Interior is fair condition. (4 out of 10)
Coolant is a little low and looks kinda "Gunky". I pulled the cap and I couldn't tell if the sludge was just kinda dirty or if it was oil sludge and indicating a blown head gasket.
Modular ZZP pulley (small one installed and a 3.25" in the trunk)
Stainless headers (unsure of brand)
Aftermarket boost gauge
ZZP. Cold air kit with the clear air box
Not sure on the ECM
Owner doesn't know much about it as he took the car in a trade for labor.
What else should I check? Is it a no brainer purchase at $1,200??
