    Wyatt, I was asking why the person posting the listing thought it needed an oil pump - not that I thought it did. Or are you disagreeing with my question in the first place???

    Cars that have been in desert areas tend to build up sand in the lower front fenders and elsewhere in the body from the high winds and rain that occur in deserts. The moisture that collects tends to stay there a long time, leading to some small areas of rot. This is nothing at all to deal with generally and that Dodge constitutes a very rust free car in my opinion including the trunk. Even the rear window area looks pretty clean.

    And even the door panels are very nice still despite the typical sun in the Santa Fe area.

    I was disagreeing with it needing an oil pump but that 360 would not be staying in the car anyway.

    I have everything to build the car twice. Yes I am a rare individual that would actually fix this car.

    With only 84K miles on the car and engine spins free, the engine might very well still be good. It might need a timing chain due to age and the plastic teeth that are probably lodged in the oil pick up tube.

    It will depend on if the seller had the good sense to park it once the oil light came on.

    And it needs a title... major problem there unless you have an extra.

    Not really. Illinois has made it pretty simple to get one.

    That would be awesome to see it actually saved! Hope it works out for you. Best of luck and I mean that in the sincerest sense.
