New and looking to buy an '87 GL10 Turbo Wagon
Posted 15 May 2004 - 08:29 PM
Is there anything that I should look for before I hand over cash? I also searched and it looks like I can expect between 20 and 30 mpg depending on conditions.
The only thing it seems to be missing is a low range but I can deal with that.
Thanks in advance for your help.

$900 for one in good shape with new stuff.. go for it.

Rust is what you gotta look for, especially on the sub-frames where the front-end attaches. That is the weak spot and once it goes, it'll never be the same without spending more than it's worth.

The head gaskets and intake manifold gaskets gave me a problem on mine along with the usual oil leaks. The alternator was a little weak also and had to work on that a couple of times.
You should be able to get at least 23mpg around town with a manual I would guess.

The motors been swapped out once and seems to be in good shape. I'll check the CVC'c and the frame in the front. I expect the frame to be in good condition as I dont see too much frame rot out here in the west.
Where do the oil leaks happen? I'll look for that also.
