For Sale: 01 Astro RWD (DD), 95 Astro RWD (Parts Truck)

Postby RECox286 [OP] » June 18th 2017, 4:51am

Selling off Mom's daily driver, a fairly well picked over 95 (still worth keeping) and over 20 years' of scrounged parts, some used, some new.

Reason ? It has become obvious to me that Uncle Bob's garage days are over due to medical reasons.

Any body that is interested ? I don't have a convenient telephone, I don't subscribe to E-Mail, so I can't be called. I can be reached with the

PM feature available here on A/S.com.

I live in Stafford Twp (Mid New Jersey) and that is where both vehicles and parts are.

Price ? I will accept NLT $ 2000. You haul it away (Be ready to get a bit dirty on the " witch" or "Easter Egg" hunt whatever you want to

call it, for all the parts. Some are in the garage, some are in the shed, and some are in the parts truck.

The 01 has been maintained mechanically and runs well, not that it doesn't have issues. Odo reading: 220k mi, and the SES light is "ON"

(code 1404, I believe.) Fresh fuel pump, alternator, starter in the last year. Seats in surprisingly good condition for it's age. Set up with

a 2" trailer hitch and 4 pole flat connector. Motor Oil: Valve-O-Line 10W40, changed every 5k mi since we got the truck, (10k mi showing) and is overdue

for its' next change. There are no pics, sorry, but I don't own a camera, or have no way of posting them if there were any.

I really don't want to part with the package, but I must.

Well hell, Uncle Bob, I hate to see this.

I hope your medical reasons sort themselves out sooner, rather than later.

Same here, I hope you will stick around and offer advice and encouragement to those of us still wrenching on these things. I fear I'm not far behind you though.

Well, like most everyone else here has already said, please keep coming back to the forum Uncle Bob! Your experience, insights and humour are needed here. I think I respect you more now than ever; it can't be easy to come to a realization like this. Prayers and warmest wishes to you and your family. You're one of a kind, Uncle Bob!
