1982 Chevette Diesel

Well, I just bought another project truck, and I moved to just 2 miles away from my work, so one out of the 4 cars has to go, and it's going to be the Chevette. Hate to see it go, but figured I'd let you fuel economy guys have first crack at it. A little bit about the car: 1.8L Isuzu naturally aspirated diesel, 5spd trans, car is in great shape aside from a ding in the driver's door. These cars are very hard to find, especially in 1/2 way decent shape. Willing to negotiate on price, and willing to ship. Any questions, just ask. Fuel economy with no aeromods is roughly 35 city 45 highway, and 50-59mpg at 50-55mph. Asking price is $3200. Car is located in Los Angeles, CA.

Delivered...does that mean you'll bring it up to Michigan for me? Would really love to have that, I grew up with one and now I could have one but treat it better than my fathers. Wish I was independently wealthy and could come and get it. Good luck, great price!

I'm glad you got it sold.
If I had any spare cash and the means of bringing it home, I would have made you an offer on her.
Now, living 2 miles from work, will you be biking to and fro?
