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'* 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.

Please start a new thread pertaining to fixing your 95.

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

Thanks!
