I just replaced the front door speakers with new pioneer 5.25" 4 Ohm units, and dash speakers with new alpine 4 Ohm units. I modified the radio harness so the Door and Dash speakers from the Concert II system are in series, IOT allow 8 ohms at the factory head unit. I had replaced the rear speakers with AC Delco 4x10s a few years ago.

Any local car shows and/ or car auctions where the car could be presented ( with a reserve price ) in order that people could see it's a quality piece as you've indicated.

Good suggestion, but the market is fairly limited where I live.



I know you've mentioned you're on Vancouver Island but I'd still be tempted to find out when and where there are some car shows and/or auctions in and around the city of Vancouver. With Vancouver being the third largest city in Canada something tells me there has to at least one person who can recognize a quality car at a fair price like yours (if they can see it). GLWS

I will be off during the last week of August. I was considering driving down to San Diego(with a different car). I would consider driving the T-type anywhere along the route for deliver it to a buyer if:

1) buyer pays full asking price;
2) substantial deposit is left to ensure I don't drive down for nothing; and
3) buyer pays a one way ticket back to Vancouver BC or Bellingham, WA.

Cheaper than shipping the car, and car will be brought through the border for you. All you need to do is bring it to a port of entry in your area. I would also consider changing my destination if someone not on the West Coast were seriously interested.

IMO that's a great idea. It's great road trip ( have done it ) . Really hope somebody on the U.S. west coast will recognize the fact that this is the perfect opportunity to grab a great ride ( delivered right to your door) at at a more than fair price.
Good luck !

Sadly, no one took advantage of this offer. I'm still willing to pick anyone up at the airport or bring the car to WA to facilitate shipping.

As per the suggestion, I uploaded some undercarriage and under hood pics.

click here for pics

The underhood light works, I just removed the bulb so it doesn't stay on when I have the hood up for extended periods of time.

The car has been rustproofed (undercoated) by Metropolitain and Krown. It's an oil based product.

Happy Thanksgiving.
