A rare but unique find. This vehicle has been very well maintained. As a professional ASE Certified Technician, I maintained this vehicle for more than 20 years before taking ownership nearly 10 years ago. It is equipped with the factory original 3.8L odd-firing V6, automatic transmission, power steering, air conditioning (has been converter to R134a with the updated drier cycling clutch system - also have all the original VIR unit for R12), power front disc brakes. Modifications made: custom dual exhaust without muffler from catalytic converter. Gives this V6 exhaust a soft-throaty sound. I have a new original muffler to restore original exhaust if so desired. Mechanical fan/clutch and fan shroud extension was removed (have parts) and 3 electrical fans installed (1 push, 2 pull). This make the engine peppier.
What makes this vehicle truly unique is that it comes with a BG Lifetime Protection Plan that is transferrable to the new owner at no charge. The engine has a $6,000 warranty under the BG Engine Plus (MOA required at each oil change 3,500 miles, presently using Rotella-T 15W40, and an extended service kit every 10,000 miles to maintain the warranty). The transmission has a $4,000 warranty (requires transmission be serviced with BG fluid every 30,000 miles to maintain the warranty). The power steering has a $4,000 warranty (requires the power steering fluid be serviced every 30,000 miles to maintain the warranty). The cooling system has a $4,000 warranty (requires the cooling system be serviced every 30,000 miles to maintain the warranty).
