And what is the car in the background?
No, I didn't get anything as far as official maintenance/service history. I did get a story and the visual evidence to back it up. One thing that I found funny was I didn't notice a coolant leak. He said "There's some extra coolant for when it gets low." .What? I checked it out and it was just a cracked radiator drain plug. I swapped that out and low and behold... no leak. Imagine that.
I did come to find out that the aux fan isn't working. It looks like it's not getting power but the fuse is good. I need to investigate further but the relays work perfectly.
In general, I still think it was a good buy at $2300. I'm hoping I can keep it in good repair for a few years to come.
In the background is my '68 Ford Galaxie XL. It was a city of Phoenix police car. Not a patrol car but some sort of detective car. It's my daily driver 'till I can get my motor back into my Talladega.
