98 AWD for sale in Lower Alabam'

Postby TowVan [OP] » October 27th 2020, 2:41am

I have a 1998 AWD Astro Van for parts or to fix. I was told by P.O. that it ran fine, but fuel pump quit. He broke the new china pump putting tank bac in, so it leaked. He pulled tank, replaced pump, broke it again! Gave up and sold it to me as a parts van. I have not put a fuel pump in (but have a known working one in a box) so have not driven. I'll have to throw a battery in to check the miles, but I think 160K or so. Needs tires and a serious interior cleaning! Brown leather conversion type captain's chairs.
Scrap yard here will give me $300 - after I pull a few things off of it. So If anyone want's to save it from that fate, now's the time!
I have a good bill of sale, and for a full price offer of $750, will get the title in my name, and throw the fuel pump in it, to make sure it runs. If anyone wants something specific, I just need to find enough folks to be able to justify parting it out.

Oh man, if I was closer this would be a good donor to turn this other Tiger into and AWD.

Any rust on this thing at all?

A.W. : Best I remember, it has zero rust on any body panels. I've been underneath it loading it on a trailer, and although I wasn't specifically looking for rust, I didn't notice anything that scared me. And that was when I was planning on keeping/building it! It does have an excellent "chassis lubrication system on it... British sports cars have a simple solution to oil leaking out the bottom - "Put More Oil In The TOP."
Its a dirty bird - inside and out! But not rusty. When it stops raining here, I'll try to get under it for some pictures.
Where are you located.. I'll def. work with ya.

Speaking of loading it on the trailer, I broke one of the cheesey runing boards off getting it on the trailer with flat 205/70's on it! But I would not have wanted them anyway! They are fiberglass, so could be repaired, if anyone really liked 'em.
Has very old 235/75's on it now just to move it around yard, but that don't leave much room in the front wheel well.
