Sorry, no part number.

However, I do have a heater core from a 1985 4WD SR5 wagon that had < 52,000 miles. It has been off vehicle and box-stored since 1995. Located in eastern Pennsylvania.

Fuel tank second rinse reveals merit!
Rinsed out and a gallon of vinegar added.
Give it a few days.

Front driveshafts are in!
Proper fill process done on trans!
Front end finally tight and cotter keys in!
Rinsed the tank again this am, it’s drying in the sun and I’ll have another look.
Read the process on the heater core, crap I should have been more careful. I can be brutal getting the scrap car core out but it’s a long day to do a core. Oh well here I come.

I smell like 90 wt and bad gas again….
Might be time for dinner or a trip somewhere, ha!

Good job, that can be a PITA.

OoooooooWeeeeeeee I’ve done a few heater cores before and the only one that was that hard was a Ford Focus!

I’m trying to get the interior all back together today.

Time to get this car running soon.

Thank Fo the board this has been a big help.

The only other time I've heard that phrase was in reference to dirt track racing. I haven't thought of that in forever. Neat.

seats look great Not sure if I mentioned it but you can put a passenger seat cover on the foam of a drivers seat if needed. just needs some pliers and patience!

Thanks and I had tried that but the DS seat was crushed and the one that matched was worn out. It gives it character I think!

That looks great. Did the car come with the rear spoiler? AFAIK that was never an option so it must have been added by a PO. A few members here have done similar, I really like the look.

well how much do you want for it? does it need any thing so it can be driven to another state?

pics look great, how are the mechanical components on it: Brakes, engine condition, clutch, transmission, shocks and suspension, etc?
