Re: 84 bonnie
On paper(Internet?) that 84 Bonneville sounds OK. But I would consider either rebulding the 95 engine (unless the transmission has issues). And you also mention "Reliable". No offense to the owners of those early 80's Bonnevilles but they were not the most reliable vehicles on the planet. Try and find something closer to this millenium.

Some came with the Buick 231 V-6 but most were equipped with the Chevy 305 V-8.
Even though AllData lists a 350 V-8, I don't know if very many were equipped this way.

has a 305 in it,
probably putting a used 77,000 miles 3800 in the 95
its only 675
how much do you think it is to rebuild the 95? trans is fine

Please start a new thread pertaining to fixing your 95.

Let's keep this thread on topic with the 84.

Thanks! :D
