Default just got her..

i just got my 94 bonneville this evening. for 800 with about 170,000 on it... it was suposed to rain so i didnt wash and wax it yet. but here are some pics.. sorry if they are fuzzy.. my camera just does that when its on night mode..




some little problem areas



other than those no other major scratches..unless i find some tomorrow when i take pics in the day... and my corner lights are filled with condensation..

EDIT* i forgot to ask if anybody could tell me if they know if its a SSE or just SE or what bc there are no badges and i dont know that much about this car yet.. thank you in advance
also iv already modified it.. well just put washers under my spoiler so it wont hold dirt and rust my trunk..

That sir is an SLE, chrome Trim on grill, but to be sure, check your RPO list on the spare tire cover, H4U is the one you are looking for.
Looks pretty good for 800 dollars!

Is there the build sheet in the trunk?

Look on the frontmost edge of the trunk when it is popped..



Encircled in this pic. (I HAVE A TRUNK LINER) but I'm assuming you don't as I didn't.

Is there any blue or white paper like material ? IF there is, push it out with your fingers towards the right of the car. That'* your build sheet. Shows what options and stuff your car has. It more than likely should have it if nobody tinkered with the car too much. Then again, it may not. I know mine had it, and my buddy at school'* '95 has one in that location.

That'* a nice 800 dollar car you got there! will clean up nicely i'm very sure.

Willwren (one of our Administrators) has the best of both worlds. An SSEi and an SLE.(supercharged SLE that is. )

Left is an SSEi. On 92-95, you will see three lines in the lower door panel cladding.

The right is his '95 SLE */C. There are two lines in our door cladding, but there is also another line in our cladding also. We have one midpoint of the trim. Not all three together. This third line on BASE SE'* is where the trim cuts off. It looks like just a basic looking line around the car.

Pic so you can see what I'm speaking of.



And the SE trim.

You can see this on user bandit'* car. Cuts off halfway down the door panel if you can see what I'm saying



The SSE/SSEi'* will also have lower - hanging sideskirts, and front/rear valances. That'* the easiest way to tell them.

I've learned alot about these cars since I've been on this site and since i've had mine and i've had chances to look her over very closely.

If any of this is wrong, there is another user, 1993 SLE who knows ALOT about these cars. He'* who I learned alot of the trim stuff from on how to spot out different styles. You might want to talk to him. His name'* pat and he'* extremely knowledgeable about the cars.

ALSO an easy mod for us to do is swap our 92 - 95 SE tails (even on the SLE they're the same as SE) for SSE(i) tails (two piece lens, louvered design)

Made world of difference on my car.


What I'd start off with is a VERY GOOD wash during daytime and look for all the bad spots of damage, and make a list of what to fix. This car is a diamond in the rough. You'll be surprised how easy the stuff is to fix on these cars, too. That'* why I love it. You can tinker with everything.

Prattage, your paint is known as 'Dark Yellow Green Metallic'.

Click on Techinfo at the top of the page and you'll find all the codes.

great buy! Jeff got his 92 SSEi for $800 and hasn't had to sink much $$ into it. Got to love when people don't know what they are selling.
