Sometimes, I’ll be poking round in one of many self-service wrecking yards I frequent and I’ll come throughout a really good older car, clearly babied by its unique proprietor for almost its whole life. It is going to be a car whose resale worth depreciated to insignificance many years in the past, dooming it to a junkyard parking area the second its proprietor trades it in.
At present’s Junkyard Discover is such a car.
1982 was the primary yr for the Cutlass Ciera, in addition to the entrance-wheel-drive GM A-Physique platform. The best-recognized A-Physique was the Chevy Superstar; these automobiles bought very nicely however their lackluster construct high quality didn’t do GM’s picture any favors. Manufacturing of the Ciera continued gone that of the Movie star, all through the 1996 mannequin yr.
This one has keys within the trunk lock, which often signifies that it was a dealership commerce-in that did not promote on the subsequent car public sale. The pool of potential bidders who would need a 35-yr-previous Ciera, regardless of how good, is microscopically small, and no one from that pool confirmed as much as rescue this car. Observe the “Bob’s Lock & Key” stamping on the ignition key.
I shot this car in California’s Central Valley, however it seems to have originated in Pennsylvania. That makes its zero-rust/zero-dents situation much more exceptional.
Most 5-yr-previous automobiles don’t have seats this good. GM wasn’t utilizing the best pleather obtainable within the Late Malaise Period, so this car was handled very properly.
The engine is an uncommon three.zero-liter model of the venerable Buick ninety° V6 engine. The three.zero was constructed for just some years in the course of the early Nineteen Eighties; this one was rated at one hundred ten horsepower. The bottom engine was the tough-operating Iron Duke 4-cylinder.
Take a look at that superbly clear carburetor! This car was liked.
Unusually for a GM car of this period, the odometer is a six-digit unit. 148,273 miles is about one hundred,000 greater than I’d have guessed based mostly on this car’s situation. The commerce-in course of should have been very painful for its proprietor.
Why drive a Rabbit or Le Automotive when you possibly can drive a Ciera? “Even right now, there’s nonetheless room to do it with type.”
