Thanks for positive feedback for you guys!
Yes, I have never owned such "time capsule", but just read about those.
Few photos of 105 total photos made me to decice to go to pick up this using taxi+bus+flight+train x 4 and ferry besides driving a car, about 1200 miles from home.
This one of the photos. You who have seen the GM thermoplastic paint know this ain't very bad for original paint..
This dash was the main reason for wanting to change from Caprice to Buick. I know it is not real wood, but I just do not care that much, so mostly because of these scene I have always front of me when driving was the reason to obsession for Buick!
And you know the huge doors also from Caprice coupe, but for me they were bigger than in my El Camino were, and I am happy for the practical frames of the door after hearing about 9 years wind blowing from the weatherstrips of the El Camino!
You see also those couples of cartoon/paper instructions telling of using seat belts or hazard lights still existing... who owns the car 38 years without removing this kind of details?
And I do not think they have been any "dealer reprints", because there is under the hood some same sort of markings of times when next services should be done as well as many pages of services done, even low miles.
One really question mark I do have anyway: I have not seen the ANTENNA anywhere, even there is a AM/FM radio! Not a whole, nothing. I thought it was suppose to be located in right side fender?
One friend told, that a pretty long time has been gone, when he has last time seen this "keep your GM as GM " sticker on the air filter. The only rust place is the main cylinder of brake and a two spots on the valve cover. Not rust elsewhere yet I have found.
The floor moldings "Body by Fischer" I did not much noticed from the photos, but when I saw that in a real life, I understood not many foot or boots had "crashed" these. I have not seen this good moldings in these B-Bodys, or other GM:s so far.
So I really must say I am pretty happy guy: when wanting some car, and then finding this kind of example, it is like as a kid at the Christmas or Birthday, you know the feeling.
Hope I can anyway really share some joy to you others too. My advice: keep your focus on some dream, even a small one, forget the "general rules" of "TOP 10 what to buy: Mustang, Corvette, Camaro..." (or my neighbours who wondered why to pick up anywhere 1978 car instead of some "real old classic") and do take a risk to pay advanced payment, and organizing the things to get your dream be true and you might succeed! Yes, I know this is not a 1940 Lincoln Zephyr or 1963 Jaguar E Type, but such vehicles I couldn't afford about ever besides not many classic cars as I think this is, which is so nice to drive 400 miles at one tank stop!
