The wires are old, but the system was converted to 12 volt from 6 volt. It also is a replacement voltage regulator. I also replaced any damaged wire or replaced it with new wire. I also used wire looms wherever possible.
The wiring now works flawlessly as the system no longer has any shorts in it. It starts better than it ever did before we did any work to it. When I got the car, the headlights and tail lights were not operating and the battery was consistently discharging. I now don't have any issues with it.
the guy who put the deposit backed out on me. He wanted to get a US version of the Chieftain, not the Canadian (figures!!!) Haven't put it back out on the Hemmings website again. Probably gonna wait now til spring.
Nope, I gave the deposit back to the guy, It was a honest mistake on his part and he seemed like a nice guy. He was also the president of the Pontiac/Oakland club for his area and said he would pass around the information to his members.
Turns out he has a 51 pontiac chieftain (US model) in parts and is looking for one that is more or less put together. He wants to keep his parts car, but use a new one for a driver.
I actually just sold it last night to a guy from Leominster, Massachusetts. I brought it to a cruise night in CT this weekend and he was there and was interested. I sold it for $7,000. The guy tried to get it for less, but I stood firm. He is bringing the bank check tonight along with his trailer. I offered to drive it to his house, but he wants to trailer it.
I don't care, but it will really bring in some much needed space.
Consequently, I am planning on using the proceeds to buy the Husqvarna ZTR I have been dying to buy. I will also be selling my GT5000 as the ZTR will be used for what I use the 5k for.
I already have a buyer for the 5K as well. Selling it with the snowblower and all attachments!!
I still have my LT1000 Craftsman for my light towing/plowing. Just cant justify keeping the GT5k if I get the ZTR.
