1975 Fjord Blue 2002


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how to post photos on here, so send me an email or take a quick look at www.allinthedetailsllc.blogspot.com.

This 1975 model came originally from Newport Beach in Southern California, so this car was mostly rust free to begin with. Since then it has been with its second owner here in the Rocky Mountains where it picked up a few rust spots, mostly on the front fenders, which were replaced with rust free examples. All other spots were touched up and block sanded, the paint was then mostly stripped down and then refinished in the original fjord blue metallic. After the paintwork a new windshield was installed. All the glass is in nice shape. Contact me for photos of the body work process.

The interior of this car is very unique. Black leather sport seats from a 2001 BMW 330ci provide much better comfort and support than the original blue bucket seats which were showing their age. The new seats are not power adjustable, so they work in the older car. They do however have multiple functions for height as well as fore and aft movement. Also, if you are good with electrical things, they are wired and ready to be hooked up for heated seats. The sunroof works perfectly and is especially nice on a summer evening. The dashboard is in great shape and the rear seat was replaced with a black rear seat to match the fronts. New black 2002 specific floor mats help to keep things looking nice. The BMW Lecarra sport steering wheel provides for a thick sportier feel than the original, while still providing for easy turning of the steering wheel.

Mechanically the car is really quite good. It runs well, starts easily and drives smooth. It does not blow any smoke and pulls strong throughout the RPMs. The transmission has been rebuilt, and is very solid. The clutch feels good and engages where it should.

Not perfect, but overall though, a very nice car that someone could easily enjoy as a daily driver or weekend toy. Service records are complete and included since the second owner in the early eighties.

I have a ton of photos, and am considering re-posting this to eBay. I bought this car to fix and and hopefully turn a profit on, that being said, I am in the car over $6k because I wanted repairs to be done right, and I had a lot of little things sorted out. This is a GREAT deal on this car, and I am hoping to sell this quick. The car is located in Salt Lake City, UT. I can be reached by cell phone at 425-446-1895, or email at allinthedetailsllc@gmail.com.
