What’s up fellow members. I just came up on my dream car. 86 442. Anyone in the chicago area that have any pointers for me? I’m very happy to have gotten my dream ride.

They do look a little uneven. I gotta take care of that. Thanks bro
Personally I think they look SO MUCH BETTER WITHOUT the mouldings. If you don’t need to do paint work though just taking them off could end up being a problem.

I need a new paint job. It’s not bad but it’s needed. Everybody saying its 5-7k$ to paint it though

I’m currently painting my Elco black in sections. Did the doors, today I’m doing the hood. Just the material cost let alone the labor of a conscientious shop kinda justify the price.

Welcome to the forum. 1986 is my favorite year for the 442. Questionably the highest optioned and the best looking IMO. Hopefully you don’t plan on smoking in that car! I’m not sure what kind of tips you’re looking for but The pictures show that your steering wheel has the beef jerky syndrome. I may have a driver quality replacement that is much better. Also your floor console lid looks like it needs some R&R. If the foam is not degraded you can paint it. Otherwise those lids are available new and you can paint it to match. The stereo needs some help. If it were my car I would put the factory Delco stereo with EQ in it. send us some pics of the undercarriage.... any rust? Have fun with it.
