Not a bad looking car. Are you sure it couldn't be saved?

Re: Parting 85 z28

Unfortunately its branded by insurance as irrepairable so can only be for parts which sucks because its such good shape

Was stolen. Steering column smashed. Not really any reason to brand it.

Re: Parting 85 z28

Does that one by chance have the H.O. 305 engine? I'm looking for two good intake hoses for an H.O.

Re: Parting 85 z28

Thanks lowryde. I thought it was probably not an H.O. as I couldn't spot the badge.

Hello NONGRATA. I have a spare set of front seats. I live in Scarborough ON but seats are at friend's place North of Whitby. Where are you?

Re: Parting 85 z28

They are in decent shape, but the driver's side should really be re-upholstered. Shipping would be VERY expensive due to weight and size... also very difficult to package. Every other year we visit friends in Shelburne N.S. but we were just there last Sept and won't likely be back until Sept 2019. If you hold out until then... I could possibly bring one or both. $50 for one, $75 for both.

Re: Parting 85 z28

Nongrata, call some of your local trucking companies.
Last year I shipped a set of rims and tires to a guy in NS from my place, east of Toronto.
Guy in NS arranged for the truck and I just had to meet him.
Truck was heading back from Toronto almost empty and they transported for cheap.

Re: Parting 85 z28

as an option my dad once shipped large chrome bumpers via greyhound from Ontario to Manitoba and it was very affordable. Maybe it works for seats.

Hello NONGRATA. I might be able to go to where the seats are located on the weekend and get a picture.
Hopefully the snow has gone.

Sorry... our area is getting hit with a big ice storm this weekend.
I'll have to wait for a bit of better weather.
