A 98 huh? Somebody better snatch it up, it has got to be a collectable!
That wood grain looks horrible!
So...how do you turn on the A/C? Pliers?

it's an 89...it's in the description......now I'd have to see under the hood to see if it's really a v8, since they didnt have a v8 option in 89.

Wow. I would think it would be a 94-96 from the interior BUT, why would anyone put the 89-90 molding on a 94-96? And it would be a lot more work then it is worth to put a whole shell of a 89-90 on a 94-96. so it's probably a 89-90 with a interior swap and maybe a engine swap. Oh and it does say 89 in the title of the description.

i saw it the other day...yeah its a 89 because of the side moldings but what threw me off was the interior. This person really went all out to make it look like a 96-97.

Only one tailpipe...

Trim, rear bumper and mirrors point to 89.
Interior 94-96
Front end, rear deck, taillights 96-97

Looks like he swapped parts out of a 96 into an 89

Rear quarters are alot harder to replace than the interior. :tongue:

94-95's also had the remote gas cap, that doesn't.

There's also minor interior pieces missing, the door light covers, the kick panels, 1 speaker cover and 1 side defroster vent.

But the interior is really hard to change. I think its origionaly a 94-95 that was wrecked. It was relaced with 89 parts, and later someone wanted to do a 96-97 swap after another crash. Someone should do a carfax on it.
How much do you want to bet that it will come out clean on carfax. He probably has wrecked the car several times and just fixed it in the yard.

Some cars are distinctly obviously owned by a certain type of person. Like mexicans buy trucks and drop em, stick the wheels out 6", and put chrome accents around the fenders. Only mexicans do that. As for that car... I'm guessing the guy is like... Irish

But there's no beer/whiskey stains on the interior? Maybe that's why they replaced it :rofl:
