Bogusly Blighted Buseymobile .. aka Lowla is For Sale

Postby Indy510 » Thu Oct 09, 2014 11:30 am

Not sure what this POS 510 is worth .. . it's been hacked more ways than not .. .. but it runs/drives everyday, with every nut/bolt/part off the 'famous' Rusty Ruby

--Questionable hacks:
-Left rear quarter panel was riveted on, with the whole spare tire well/tailight panel still attached, over 15 years ago, by the PO ... needs new panels welded on
-Firewall was cut 9 years ago ... questionably repaired (not by me)
-Fender mounting holes (on top of upper frame rails) were cut off to the spot welds 8 years ago ... not fixed yet
-Super hacked mini-tubs, allow dust/exhaust into car ... needs mini tubs patches
-Had bubble flares, I cut them off
-Welded on 4dr rear fender lips, with lots of Bondo, 3 years ago ... far from professional looking or executed
-Welded in a new drivers floor pan, didn't finish the under side of front rocker panel (can't put a jack stand there anymore) ... again not a pro job
-Finally got the fender lips looking decent, then rolled them too much to fit new wheels ... cracked the bondo and pulled/cracked above driver's rear lip
-Welded in new left front T/C rod bushing 'cups', they were thicker than stock, now I can't add enough caster on LF ... needs adjustable T/C rods

--The Good:
-Freshly rebuilt, high comp., L16 out of Rusty Ruby ... less than 5k miles, runs great, lots of power
-properly jetted DGV webber (gets great gas MPG)
-280zx 5 speed .. Ermish crossmember ... balanced driveshaft
-Comes with a spare stock R160 diff., and good half shafts ... current diff is loud at speed
-H4 hella high/low beams ... with brand new 80-90w bulbs .. (super bright)
-Perfect hood and drivers door ... small rust spot on the almost perfect passenger door .. roof is perfect too
-Good stock 510 brakes .. mostly new everything
-new'ish IR alternator, Odessey PC680 Battery, and gear reduction starter motor
-Good Matchbox dizzy
-new 'cast impeller' style water pump, and 3 core radiator .. never overheats (but I don't drive in super hot weather)
-1" RCA bump steer spacers, and a well made steering box brace w/ backing plate
- Got a new windshield, and new front/back windsheild weatherstripping .. 8 years ago ... all still look good
- Passenger door has all new weatherstipping, have squeeges for both doors, and window channel felt for driver's door
- New trunk seal, and tons of misc. 510 parts in the trunk

I consider this shell 'un-restorable', but it's a decent driver/beater.. I was thinking about asking $3,500 with cheap suspension, no bumpers/fog lights, and stock 710 steel wheels

or $5k with Ermish front/rear coilovers .. Koni front inserts, and DP camber plates .. bumpers/fog lights .. a way nicer interior/seats/door panels .. and the white wheels seen below:

wheel specs: ... rear: 15x8 +0 205/50 Rota RKR's .... front: 14x6 +18 195/60 Watanabes on 1/2" spacers .... the Patina/rust is all fake (I will show how, later in this thread)

The History:

the hacked firewall was repaired by my friend ... seems solid enough,after 5k miles and 8 years

Image


I fiberglassed/bondo'ed the firewall flat ... while the old motor was in ... the L18 and dual carbs is long gone

This is how she looked with flares: .... I recently sold the pair of 16x9 -13 Watanabes .. and I plan on selling the rest of my 4x114.3 wheels soon (PM me if you want anything I've ever had on my cars, except these 16x9 Wats)

This bad rocker panel rust hole was never fixed .... I used poar foam, and fiberglass/bondo .... sorry

Image


and the enlarged tailight holes were fiberglassed/bondo'ed, to fit stock tailights again, and rear lower valence was fiberglassed on also
