To Sable or not to Sable

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

So, randomly searching craigslist I see a Gen 1 Sable marked "West coast car" about an hour from here. So, I check the listing and see a Gen 1 Sable advertised "rust free" and 700 bucks. Rust free in Michigan? Yeah right!

So, I decided today to go take a peek at it. Sure enough, not a lick of rust. Not even one dent! Starts beautifully. Underside even still has the original factory paint. This would be an easy new paint job.

The inside hasn't survived well, which is an easy fix for me. Apparently, the car was brought over from Idaho and never has witnessed a salted road, but has been parked under a tree for a year.

One person has looked at it so far to use as a demo derby vehicle, and I'm on the fence, but really thinking of pulling the trigger on this one. Told them I'd let them know tomorrow. I'd hate to see this used as a demolition car.

I'm thinking so. Made the decision just a minute ago to send them a message that I'll take it. Way too difficult to find one of these with NO dents, NO rust, and an undercarriage that looks brand new. Going to switch out the interior on my other 1990 that's been garaged for years and with that go to her final resting place.

The inside of this car is destroyed beyond repair. They may not have the salt, but they have the sun out there and the entire dash has split in multiple places among other things.

Im quite astounded how well this car turned out with just a little water and a rag. Not a lick of rust or even a dent, not a bad find for 700!
