.. but to get back on a sound financial footing I just might have to do it.

1968 Standard with Decor group J-Code with 4 speed. Black Cherry/Maroon interior with head rests.

Has 80's 14" Craigers on her. Rust near the doorskins but everything else appears to be solid. Engine ran fine after replacing fuel lines, pump and carb rebuild but won't drop down from fast idle and now needs to have ignition looked at after failed petronix upgrade. It appears as though the PO recovered over the original covers as the seems on the buckets have broken away.














Marti Report



Will consider any fair offer.

The pic of the rear seat and panels kinda scares me. Do you have any pics of dash/console/front buckets/engine? I'm assuming you've left the best for last!

Dashpad is toast and the rest is OK but faded chrome. Console was cut for DIN and is either faded or the lighter red color. The buckets need to be redone but have the coveted headrests. Engine I've posted before so a search should help.


To be honest I'd much rather sell the Jimmy project with a freshly stroked 350/383 est 412hp / 425tq and less then 500 miles on rebuilt T350.

Even in the same state. This is a sign from the Cougar Gods, you must keep the car!

If someone is interested in a '87 GMC Jimmy, lifted with 35's and freshly stroked 383 (412 hp / 425 tq) less then 500 miles on rebuilt turbo 350. Needs engine accessory drive, hood hinge, fill rear dif, fuel line, reinstall gas tank and radiator, also needs engine rewired for carb and dash wired and oil gauge plumbed) I'd let it go for $2,000 OBO. I'll post pics if you want to see it.

Buy the Jimmy, Save the Cougar

Thus the title of this thread. I would rather sell the Jimmy Project. One or the other or both have to go.
