'84 (DLX?) Cali Car with issues for $500

on ebay.https://www.ebay.com/itm/174197583297

Some strange stuff but lots of good parts in the very least. Even some tan plaid sr5 seats up front, which look very out of place! Looks like a dead cylinder, trans issues, 4wd issues, and a front end that looks like it was banged back together after a bender, but if someone needs a clean body to work with and a pile of parts in reasonable condition, $500 might look enticing, and you might be a sucker, who knows?

it is an auto trans, so no telling what the transmission issues could be. it might only need a good flush and refill with fresh fluid, or in might need a rebuild or replacement. though typically if it is just a shift issue, that often can be corrected by using a trans valve body cleaner additive.
