My First 2002!


Recommended Posts

Weeks ago I made my first post to this forum asking for advice on the price of a 75' 2002 I was looking to buy from a close friend of my father. I didn't know much about 02's although it has been one of my favorite cars after first seeing this one when I was 16 in his garage. After reading forum feedback and doing research on other 02's I was able to estimate what the car was actually worth and prove to the seller that his asking price was in fact too high. Luckily he was understanding and agreed to lower the price of the car to a very reasonable number. I am happy to say that I am the new owner of this beauty.





The car is currently at the mechanic getting some minor tune-ups to the oil tank and carburetor. Will post more pictures when I pick the car up in a week or so. Thanks to all for the feedback to my first post.

Thanks for all the advice and support. Honestly, I have never been much of a car person other than always really liking 02's, specifically this one, and a few other old cars. I don't know much detail about the mechanical aspects of cars so I will definitely be learning as I go along. The most important thing to me is keeping the car as original as possible, without getting too serious about things. Luckily the original owner of the car took very good care of it. He had seat covers on the two front seats ever since he purchased the car so they look brand new. The back seat is almost matching because I dont think many people ever sat back there and the car was garaged most of its life so there isnt much interior damage from sun. I remember the wood surrounding the stereo column needing a cleaning. I dont believe the stereo is the original one that came with the car but looks matching to the time period. He put in a cassette/am/fm stereo a year or two after buying the car. Mechanically the car works great. The paint is original and looks awesome. The only real problem is rust, two areas specifically; one beneath the drivers side turn signal light (see pic) which is a whole smaller than a penny, and the other on the bottom of the passenger door. I don't plan of fixing them right away, but would rather not wait too long. I just dont really know exactly what kind depth it would entail. Anyways, enough rambling. I will post more photos when I pick up the car from the mechanic. Very excited.
