I need your thoughts on this

Post by m swann » Thu May 29, 2014 11:52 pm

Hi All, I have come across a 1982 GSL with only 20600 Kms on the dial. Everything I see tells me that this is the correct kms. And it is supported through the documentation. It does need a clutch slave or master replaced but everything else seems good. Question ; what other issues should I be looking at based on very low kms. Basically what causes problems if not used regularly.
Thanks for your ideas.
When in doubt....hit the gas.

Brake system and fuel system will have suffered. Carb will potentially need rebuilt.

If any moisture has gotten into the motor, the cast iron plates could be badly corroded. Oil control orings, water seals etc.

Hi Mal,
AC works good cannot See any damage or rust. A lot of nice picture. So $6000 is a good price if they reality. Control the backlash of the steeringwheel. All rubber should be change cause they are 36 year old.Also check this:
