silver 78 sunbird father/son project looking for parts.

Postby Jamie Lindsey » Mon May 14, 2018 6:43 pm

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Found 2 cars in the junkyard this weekend. Trying to get this thing on the road in a year or so. Have a list of items. Was not sure if I should post the list or if you guys could refer me to someone. Thanks in advance for the help.

This is the link to the document with the photos in it. I've been trying to get the photos on the forum but it keeps saying "The attachment’s file size is too large, the maximum upload size is 2 MB." So if it doesn't work I will try something different.

It is not his car. You have to reply to the craigslist ad. The car is at a junkyard that specializes in cars older than 1981. The pictures are old and the car may have parts sold off it already ( then again it is not a high demand car so it may be in the same condition as depicted). Others on this board have bought parts from the same person.

do you know what junkyard is called so we can call it and find out what parts are still left. we live 9 hours away and want to make sure it is worth travelling that far.

I don't know the name but I'm pretty sure from the ad the owner is not going to reply to a phone call. The ad emphasizes email only, no calls.
