1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass, (convertible?), V8, 4.3L, auto, chopped off top, welded reinforced door pilar, lowered, all doors open, mileage unkown, runs great, $900. Since this car is a 1979 model it does not need an emission, so you can modify as much as you want. No radio, no top, no door glass. This was a Cutlass Cruiser station wagon. Call Ron at 678-665-9699. Lilburn / Lawrenceville area.

I haven't been looking at Malibus for a little while, mostly because they are so common.

They appear to have been breeding ... so I'm just going to post some links.

$2,500 for one in primer.
$5,500 for $4,000 wheels.
$2,500 for a really nice looking Malibu in Detroit. Seriously, If I wanted a Chevy, this one is screaming "nice" to me.
A Lemans converted into a Malibu ... why?
A $10,000 ask for a decent looking conversion, aside from the wheels, IMO.
$4,500 for an urban interpretation of hot rod.
$5900 OBO for a drag strip roller with an option for a 461 CBB for only $1,500.
1982 Malibu with IROC wheels.
Only $16,995 to look like a Buick!
$4,800 for a very clean looking Malibu.
For good measure, here's a cutlass, just to make sure you're paying attention.
Best offer for a still functioning diesel. No pictures.

1980 Pontiac lemans wagon
This is a car that i got new as a company car back in 1980.When the company was sold(1982) i purchase the car.I have always been supplied with a company car with my new company but keep the wagon just in case i lost my job.The car has been in my underground garage all its life.I have maintained it all its life with in reason.I have put in a new fuel pump,powersteering,battery,the tires are whitewalled Michelin that have been on the car for many years but are not in too bad of shape.It is the original paint job and the body is rusted with a few holes showing. The frame i have been told is rusted as well.The car was undercoated new but they say rust proofing back in those days was not that great.It has a oil leek not sure what that is about.The cruisecontrol does not work but the airconditioning(not original) does.The interior is in good shape but the roof lining needs replacing.The car runs good with a few rattles.If you would like to see it you can drop bye my place(Yonge@ Davisville) or i can bring it to you if you are in Toronto.(Car will be sold as is).I hate to part with it it has been with me for so many years but the time has come.I hope it will find a good home.If you need anymore info contact me at rickcumming@sympatico.ca or phone (416-483-4683) Payment cash or certified cheque.Thank You.

After looking at all sorts of these wagons in varying conditions, I have kind of decided that I'd like to go with a Regal, which makes the quest more difficult.

The main reason that I'd prefer to find a regal is because of the ease of swapping a 231 to a Buick 350. Its tractable power, improving aftermarket support and good original design make it both robust and much lighter than a Chevy 350.

The Olds and Pontiac 350s can't say that, even though they make plenty of power.

(Buick 350= 450 lbs, Chevy=575 lbs, Olds= 560 lbs, Pontiac= 650 lbs)

I also like the look of the Regal best.

Finally, two members of my family are Buick dealers, so I kind of have a soft spot for them.

This one is the first that I have found with an engine other than the 231 V-6.

So, while I have found two that have gotten away from me, I remain on the lookout. Let me know if you guys find one in decent shape.

The one pictured above is chevy powered, and not ideal for my intentions. You guys might like it, though.
First car 1981 Cutlass Sedan 231
Second car 1983 Buick Regal 231
Third car 1981 Pontiac Grand Prix 301
Fourth car 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix 231
Fifth car 1986 Buick Regal 307

OLD SCHOOL Oldsmobile Cutlass Wagon
Reply to: sale-dzq5q-1231551497@craigslist.org
Date: 2009-06-20, 2:24PM

This car is a 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass Wagon....in very good condition. Drives great, on highway too. AC works and is actually cold! Radio and cassette player work, power windows. Original red paint and red interior.....V8 engine. Was owned by the same family for 30 years and well taken care of. Was originally diesel but converted to gasoline, car has it's 3rd engine in it now. Odometer reads 74,000 but not sure if it works correctly. Would love to keep this car but unfortunately need something more practical.......a great project for car-lover or someone who wants to fix it up and make it look fabulous. Only problem is it needs to pass emissions (won't pass here in city but in another town it will for sure), needs a catalytic converter and a few other things to be up to par in the city of Phoenix. Asking $3000. Want it to go to a good home!!! Call 480-720-5996.

G-Body Wagon
Reply to: sale-uaatp-1235297963@craigslist.org

1983 Pontiac Bonneville ( g-body ) Station Wagon.
Drive Train:
350 SBC. All stock except for recently rebuilt 1.94 cylinder heads (888 casting), high volume oil pump, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold ( powder coated black), 600 dp Holley carb, Edelbrock cast aluminum tall valve covers, and a Edelbrock high volume mechanical fuel pump. K&N Air Cleaner with 14”x3” K&N reusable filter. GM Serpentine Belt conversion ( powder coated black from late model f body ) with a CS 1 wire 140 amp alternator and high flow reverse rotation water pump. Ceramic coated (still in decent shape) 1 5/8 Hedman shortie headers connecting to a Pypes G body 2 ½” mandrel bent true dual exhaust system using Pypes high flow catalytic converters, Pypes high flow mufflers and an X pipe. The tail pipes exit right behind the rear tires GN style. About two weeks after the heads were rebuilt, the engine developed a noise. The noise isn’t always present but you hear it more often after the engine is hot. I’m assuming it’s a bottom end noise, but I’m not positive.
Turbo 400 transmission with a P.A.E. (http://www.paeenterprises.com/paeproducts8.html) switch pitch conversion including their PAE3000 torque converter. It gives about a 1200 low stall, and a 3000 high stall. It’s bolted in using a “maliburacing.com” Iceman cross member.
The rear is a Chevy 12bolt out of a 1970 Chevelle, bolted in using conversion control arms. It’s got a 3.08 gear with a GM posi unit.
Chassis:
The front suspension was completely rebuilt 3yrs ago using a PST suspension kit and Moog coil springs (front and rear). Everything on the front end (except the center link) was replaced. Brakes, rotors, hoses, steel lines, etc….. I also installed a rebuilt GN quick ratio steering box. It has an Addco front sway bar using polyurethane bushings on the frame and end links. I also added a Hurst line loc while I had everything apart. The line loc is actuated thru the cruise control button. KYB high pressure gas shocks are used on all four corners. Corvette style Rally wheels are used all around with 15x6 on the front, and 15x8 ( 275/60/15 ) on the rear. No trim rings are installed, instead I used the small stainless steel police center caps.
Body/Frame:
The car was originally white and was repainted white. All the side and wheel well moldings were removed, along with any side and name plate emblems, and all the holes were filled. The rear wheel well inner lips were trimmed. The roof rack was removed, but the chrome roof strips are still installed. While the front end was apart for the rebuild, a frame repair around the steering box/sway bar mount area was done and the entire front frame was pressure washed and then painted with POR-15. The rear frame rails are in great shape. There is some body work starting to show where the molding holes were filled, and at the bottom of the rear quarters, but it’s no where near extensive and should be straight forward to repair. The floor boards are in good shape. The rear bumper is in great shape and the chrome is good.
Interior:
I started restoring the red interior, but it’s not complete. It was originally a split bench. I’ve replaced the bench with a pair of buckets. Basically the drivers compartment is complete. Everything behind the driver still needs some work. The power window motors were replaced. The dash is the typical Bonneville/Lemans/Grand Prix gauged dash. The tach, water temp, oil pressure, and volt meter gauges have all been replaced with VDO performance gauges. The speedometer, and fuel level gauges are original. A Grant GT three spoke wood grained steering wheel has also been installed.

I'm kinda stuck on a Regal.

Plus, the nose on the last year of Lemans strikes me as kind of lame.

Anyway, here's a Century. We're getting warmer.

Description of 1979 Buick Century :
1979 BUICK CENTURY WAGON THIS CAR IS A PROJECT! This was a origional V6 car with a dead motor. I put a early 70s rebuilt Buick 350 V8 in about 2-3 years ago and fianly got it running last fall. The car does run and drive. When I put the motor and trans in I put in the following parts new radiator (for a V8) alternator plugs wires cap rotor air filter oil and filter belts coil hoses and a rebuilt carb. I found some bucket seats out of a Regal that match the rear seat but I need the inside seat brackets. The car also has a Regal turbo hood on it. I have two rust free Arizona fenders in the back that also go with it. The car has almost new BF Goodrich TAs on chrome Buick wheels. The body needs some work there is minor rust in the quarters good doors good floors. There is no roof rack and the paint is a two tone not woodgrain. This car came from southern Illinois where they dont get much snow. The rear frame rails have some rust but I have a complete rust free frame that I can cut the ends off of or you can take it all (it is under a 83 wagon that I have for parts). The ends are a pretty simple fix. I have three of these cars and a few others and dont have enough time to go around. I will price depending on what you want. Or I will sell parts off the parts car if you need somthing fr a 78-84 Buick Century or Regal wagon or the same Oldsmobile wagon let me know what you need I have a lot of extra parts for these cars. Price depends on what you want. asking $1600.00 Call Herb 330-603-9941

Location of this Buick Century: Akron, OH
