How much do these usually go for, what engine options did they have, how good were the reliability ratings, and how much hp and torque did they make? Im just wondering, I think they look pretty cool. Nice Saturday night cruisers. :mrgreen:

they are a g-body and are really pretty much the same as a malibu, monte carlo or grand prix of that era (78-87) w/ pretty good parts availability. i'd get one and drop a pontiac 400 or 455 in it... :thumbs:

Well I found out that most of them came with a 350 V8, although an incredibly bad performing one. But thats no surprise considering the year it was made. :laughing: A 455 sounds pretty sweet, but where would I get one besides a junk yard?

local trading type paper.... around here, it's called "the bargain finder" or "tradin' times" or a junkyard...
