Description

Hi, 

 

I've posted my beloved Bluebird on OfferUp in Los Angeles: https://offerup.co/xRcKvmBJblb

 

This is a very fun, peppy and extremely reliable little car. It has frequently been my daily driver over the years, most recently for a stint of 50 mile 7-days-a-week commuting. I have owned it since 2012. In 2016 I completed a full overhaul, including an engine swap, new brake system and new electrical system. Since then, I simply drive it. 

 

Upgrades include: 

 

-Modern EFI engine from a 2000 Chevy Metro (running on stock ECU with custom harness, wiring diagram provided)
-5 speed transmission from a 1987 Suzuki Samurai (converted to hydraulic clutch)
-Front disc brake swap from a Datsun RL411 (NOS rotors and recent new pads)
-Brake system converted to dual-circuit master cylinder with all new hard and flex lines
-Three row aluminum radiator with electric fans, controlled by ECU
-Complete new body wire harness with modern fuses and relays (custom wiring diagram provided)
-RetroSound AM/FM/USB/Bluetooth stereo with handsfree calling
-3 point retracting seat belts for all four passengers 
-Hazard/four-way flashers added with new harness
-Amber lights from a BMW, just for fun.

 

Known issues: 

 

-Pinhole leak at oil drain plug weld. I just ignore it, but over time it does build up enough to drip.
-Front and rear window seals leak in rain/car wash (new front/rear seals provided with sale)
-White paint is in poor condition, and there are quite a few little dents. 
-Rot at ends of rockers, as shown in photos (floors and trunk rust free)
-Speedometer not connected (I had a ClassicSpeed GPS cable unit, but then put it in my wife's truck)

 

Videos from after swap: 

 

 

I cannot over-state what a joy this car is to drive, all around town or way up the PCH. But, I have too many cars, and I promised my wife that I would sell at least three before getting another (and there's something new (old) I really want). My loss is your gain.
