FS: 1996 Blue Civvie Caprice Parts/Project Car

Blue exterior and interior
L99 Motor with 18X,XXX miles
Transmission and torque converter replaced in '07, think that was about 4X,000 miles ago (2200 stall converter - shifts very robustly - even 2nd)
New radiator, some hoses and oil cooler lines last year
Alternator replaced around the same time as the transmission
New water pump sometime in the last five years
New plugs and wires around the same time as the alternator
G80 rear end
4 9C1 N97 steel wheels and caps - spare is faux spoke alloy
Tires are decent
Optima yellow top battery (7+ years old)

The interior is partially disassembled. I took the B-pillar apart to borrow the driver seat belt. Put the belt back but never the trim. Started taking the dash apart to get at the speedometer and a loose vacuum line but only got the lower off and never finished.

Think it needs brakes. One of the pulleys on the serpentine belt is making a racket and needs to be replaced (probably serpentine belt too). Whine at high speed clunking at low speed that could be wheel bearings or the rear end or something else.

Leaks oil, thought it was the cooler lines but nope. Adapter?

Air conditioning non functional. Large leak somewhere.

Drivers side window off the rollers but presently up.

Windshield chipped and dribbles in heavy rain (though I think that's from the seal). Headliner and parts of upper dash discolored.

Body/paint are not perfect (passable) but it's never been hit as far as I know. Paint scratches on passenger side doors. Rust spots on the hood near the bowtie. Suspect some rust on the rear quarters around the wheel wells but not rusted out.

It's been a daily driver (parked outside) for most of the last 13 years. I'd like to see as little as possible end up in the boneyard. Would be thrilled if somebody bought it as a project car and kept it on the road, though I know it's worth more as parts. I've moved and don't have a place to keep it (even outside) anymore. Plates are only good until November so I don't have time to part it out myself.

It does run and can move itself short range. Would be nervous about going more than 20-30 miles without addressing some issues. Presently located in eastern Missouri.

Looking for offers...I'll start tossing numbers out if there aren't any nibbles. Don't lowball me too much or I'll donate it or trade it.

I'll have no problem getting a $500 tax write-off or trade value. I think the radiator, transmission, wheels, tires and body panels are worth more than that. $800 cash takes it. Get it before I put it on craigslist.

It will be gone Monday or Tuesday. If you want it make me a cash offer over $500 ASAP.

Oil cooler blowout. Make me any offer. Not going anywhere under its own power unless the cooler gets yanked (working on that now). Quite possibly going to end up in the boneyard unless I can fix it quick or somebody wants it.
