Possibly the original buyer decided to Upgrade. My 98SE had a cassette deck in it when I bought it...

Sweet deal. I've always thought it was a pretty nice stereo for a base model.

They want $400 for it.


The owner said he "put too much oil" in it and it started to develop a "knock"....hmm



"it still drives, but I would not leave town with it"



This would likely mean he spun a bearing correct?

Oh one more thing, the '81 turns out it needs a new transmission, estimated cost is over $2000 to replace it, since it is so rare, that is just for parts...

Well thats what I said, but he said "no" lol. However it would make sense, that if the upper failed, water seeped into the bearings and it would appear he put too much oil in.
