    Description: 1989 Turbo Caravan with 3 spd auto. 140k miles

    ***Has a blown Head gasket*** been parked for about 5 years

    Griffin Radiator

    3" DP and exhaust bought from a vendor on this forum.

    Wideband 02

    Front brakes were replaced but will need rears done. The driver rear drum is bad but I bought a correct replacement that will go with the van. I also have new rear brake shoes.

    I did cap, rotor, plugs, and other misc tune up stuff before the gasket popped.

    AC was working but with a slow leak.

    Interior is in really good condition.

    No rust holes, only surface rust mainly on roof.

    I'm sure the battery is toast from sitting.

    **Not looking to deliver or ship** I'm sure it will be easy to sell locally in South Florida.

    When you say blown head gasket, was it pushing out into the radiator?
    If so, there could be significant engine damage if coolant got into any of the cylinders.
    Someone had that recently where they put up the car after a blown head gasket and finally got to it a year or two later, and it wasn't pretty. That said, many people have spare blocks, so it might not be a big deal to a potential buyer here.

    That interior looks fantastic! And I could picture this van all spiffed back up!

    Yes sir that is how I knew the Head gasket was blown. I definitely do not want to mislead anyone.

    The van cleans up pretty good but needs mechanical work for sure. Like I said the AC did actually work and the trans shifted fine. But this is not a throw a battery in it and drive away deal.
