    120K 2001 3.9 V-8, synthetic only, have maintenance records
    New windshield from last year, old one got broken in hailstorm
    4 newer tires with lots of tread, on factory 16 inch rims
    Lots of newer mechanical parts, body hailed out
    Alpine deck / 4 Infinity 6x9s / Kicker sub amp, worth $500

    The straw that broke my back today was the top starter bolt.

    Two weeks ago, I drove it though our muddy dirt road and it ran fine until I turned it off, but now only getting clicking when try to start it, lights still fine but I think starter quit.

    Tried to swap starter today, but officially tired of working on it and spending $ on it. So if you’re needing parts for a project, you’re going to get a hell of a deal.

    Was a salvage car that was considered totaled at 96K miles, in 2007 in Indiana. The previous owner said he was told someone hydro locked original engine around 95K miles, then a 2001 engine was put in. I bought it in 2010 in Tampa with 128K miles on it.

    Estimate 120,000 on engine now, I’ve only used synthetic Mobil 1 on it since then, and had an LS specialist from this board do a ton of work on it in 2012 including checking timing chain guides which were in good shape then, and there’s no audible chain noise now.
    See attached maintenance records.

    I’m 30 minutes north of I-80 in western Nebraska, bring a trailer.
