This is a survivor. It has the original 215 CID aluminum block V-8. I bought it with a bad transmission. I had it rebuilt to the tune of $2,200. I rebuilt the master cyl., the front wheel cylinders and put new brakes on the front. I had the 2V carb rebuilt. The odometer does not work but there was receipts in the glove box indicating work done in the '90's indicating lower milage than the broken odometer shows. I have the original build sheet and the original spare is in the trunk. The interior is pretty bad (see photos) but the body is totally rust free as is the frame. I mean totally. the bumpers are also totally rust free. The guy i bought it from says he bought it from an old man who was going into a nursing home. Unfortunately the seller also rattlecanned the body primer grey. I wish he had left it alone. The engine runs very good. I have driven it as my daily driver since i got it street ready. I believe this vehicle is very low milage although I cannot prove it. It obviously was stored inside for much of it's life. The tires were old firestone bias ply and very rotten. I put new rubber all the way around on the car. It has add on A/C but it is not working. The compressor is not frozen but beyond that I know nothing. It has AM radio that works. The air filter says "Rocket 8". Not 88. The engine is origial. This engine was very popular with 60's hot-rodders and it's rare to find one still in the original car. This engine was later put in Land Rover vehicles. This F-85 was slated by GM to come out with a V-6 and have front wheel drive. Apparently GM advertising was ahead of GM engineering and the front wheel drive never materalized.I had the differential drained and re-filled when I had the transmission rebuilt. The tranny has a 12 month transferrable warranty. The transmission was rebuilt 5 months ago.
