Paint job on the car is not a 15k high quality paint job, I see turning this car into a patina car would be the best choice as some body parts dont have matching colors

For the current time engine blows grayish smoke sometimes, once I do an oil change the smoke goes away, oil becomes dirty real quick and sometime smells like gas, I still haven't rebuilt the throttle body yet and I think its the main reason for this issue, I tried checking the o2 sensor but its stuck for

some reason, only code thats shows up is code 45 indicating rich exhaust, I'll rebuild the tbi and see if the issue goes away. The car did not do any of this when I bought it, it was a properly running engine with no smoke whatsoever.



Things the car still need:

1- AC work(Does not blow cold air)

2- Partial brake work(Not really needed)

3- oil pan gasket(Might change it myself before selling)

4- Some interior parts(Dashboard bezel - headliner - maybe a better carpet - a color matched driver side handrest)

5- Doors sag after a while of use(Mostly driver door)

6- Some weatherstripping(Driver side vent window - hardtop - taligate window - rear windows)

7- 1 missing chrome wheel molding (All other ones are new)



8- Turn it into a patina blazer(Will look much better)



Things I am going to do

1- Install the seatbelts

2- change differential fluids and gaskets

3- Install AC vent duct (Driver vent)

4- Install Spare tire

5- Change or rebuild TBI(Maybe)



Story of the car:



The car was on auction on Autobidmaster and a local showroom imported it here into the UAE, they then sold it to a guy who restores blazers but he went out of the country during covid and the car sat there for almost 2 years, he was planning on restoring it but had no time as his work was in the way, many buyers came to buy it from him to sell as parts but no one bought it. I came, saw it, and bought the car on 31-07-2021 in a rusty condition, car was almost going to be parted out so I decided to save it, bought the car as my first ever classic car, there were holes in both passenger and driver floorpans and rusty fenders. Took the car to a bad garage, he did the rust repair, paint,

chasis protection coat, and "electrical work", most of the work done was not high quality work especially the electrical work which almost burned the whole vehicle down. Then decided to take it to a much better garage who only specialized in classics mainly squarebodies, he did a whole new wiring harness,

painted passenger rear fender, fixed rear suspension, and did a whole lot of other work, got the car back and was able to finally drive and for the past couple of months I took my time to enjoy working on the car doing some small work day by day. Brought the car from rusty parts car to a drivable road worthy car,

yes it took alot of money and time and frustration but I see it as an achievement especially that this is my first ever car to restore. in total the car costed me around 24.5K usd in repairs only, Hopefully I can get back some of the money I paid for this car so I can move on to the next restoration project with much more

experience than my first time.



Note: If you have an offer, give it a try I might accept. If you have someone here in the UAE that can buy the car for you I can help out.
