Was this a good buy? the bodys in cool shape, some rust and a hole in the trunk area, but nothing too drastic. So far i like the car a lot.
The guy claims he only used premium gas, is it a problem if i slowly ween it to regular? I have been told no, but he says to only use premium.
The speedometer doesnt really work, hows the best way to get it out?
Also how can I remove the radio in it easily?
Thanks and i look forward to speaking with u all!
Not a bad buy at all. My first automobile was an 87 st. I drove it until it had like 467,xxx miles. haha. regular gas is fine for this application. The speedometer problem could be multiple things. Speedometer head, speedometer cable, or the gear that goes into the transmission and connects to the cable. There is a very outside chance that it could be the ECU but thats doubtful. To remove these things and reinstall I would suggest a Haynes manual, you can get one at Autozone for $15. There are just alot of steps to taking the interior panels out. Do not be intimidated by this, the book has lots of pictures (made for the slow, like me
Just ask if you need anything else!
