View Full Version : Thinking of Selling My 81 Omega

Hi everyone, haven't posted on here for a really long time. I have a 1981 Omega that I have owned since 1985. It has been stored in my barn for the last 20 years. I have always planned to restore it including a swap to the 2.8L HO that I got out of a 1981 X11 (the car has the 2.5L Iron Duke today). Life has moved on and I am seriously thinking of getting rid of the Omega. I just don't think I will ever get the time to restore it.

The car overall is in pretty decent shape considering its age. Rust has crept in on the lower fenders, quarters and floor pans even though it has always been stored inside on concrete. It has a SportOmega front fascia in great shape. The interior is in good shape with no rips or tears, but does has the odor of having sit for 20 years. I haven't started it in probably 10 years now, but know it will run with a new battery. Probably would make sense to drain the gas tank now since the fuel is so old. It does need new brake lines (rusted) so it would need to be trailered.

I will pull it out of the barn and clean it up in the coming few weeks, but did snap this photo today. I will include the 2.8L to whoever might want the car. I am thinking of $750, but really don't know what its worth. Appreciate comments/feedback.

More photos once I get it out and cleaned up.

I should have mentioned that the car has a custom set of side skirts (fiberglass). I built these myself. I still have the mold (it is a reverse lay up mold). The skirt mold goes with the car as well.

I like it, wish I had room for more projects. Got one more in the works which puts me one car over the limit already. :(

Fascinating about your custom made side skirts. That must have taken some time to make the molds.

Sincerely,
David

Subbing for pics and cleanup. Once you wash this clean and fire it up, I have a feeling you won't want to sell it.

I'm preparing my speech to the wife in case you still want to sell. Who knows, she might be weak that day and it might happen!

I've taken my Torino through a car wash twice in the nearly five years I've owned it, once at a self-serve wash bay, and the other three times I've cleaned it up has been with a kitchen sink yellow sponge in the rain in the driveway.

Got the Omega out into the sunshine today. First time its seen the sun in 20 yrs. Trying to decide whether to restore or sell. Looks like I am going to need 2 doors or spend some serious time restoring these. Hard to believe how much they rusted sitting inside, on concrete. Has anyone run across a good salvage yard in the southwest that might have a couple of rust free doors?

It's amazing how damaging salt is. It will get trapped in the doors and keep drawing moisture from the air and rusting the metal.

I'm in the southeast, I guess that would be too far?

I will take pics later this week. Had a busy weekend with guests, etc. I did strip out the interior. The dead mouse smell was really bad. Once I got the carpet up & out I now realize why - it was soaked with mouse urine. For 20 yrs its been sitting there soaked, smelling and rusting! Now I got holes thru the floor on the driver side in the footwell area. More metal work....

Yep. I always keep blocks of this product (http://www.tomcatbrand.com/mouse_refillable_kid_and_dog_resistant.html) in the interior and the underhood area of all my stored cars. It has saved me some electrical repairs for sure. There's always a small amount of the poison nibbled away. I guess stray mice find their way in, nibble it then die off before damaging the car or reproducing.

I don't bother with the bait station. I just take one block, break it in half, and put one half under the hood, and the other half under a seat. Problem solved.

For a lightweight Omega you'd be lucky to get $150-$250 driving it in. If they have to come get it, you'd not likely get ANYTHING for it.

Dont scrap it without at least throwing some pics of it up here and letting us have a look. Judging by this thread i would guess that myself, david, occupant and maybe even Andy are at least CONSIDERING the car for our collections. In the for sale section, who knows.

Most importantly before you scrap it is remove the whole front bumper assembly. Impossible to find & I would be interested in giving you a couple bills just for the nose. My Sport Omega floors were basically completely toast from sinking into the dirt for a good 13 years or so in the junkyard but I saved it. Stick some picks up. How are the quarters? We all would like to see pics of all sides of the car. Yeah, doors are a little tough to come by as I am finding out. I got a good drivers but I'll have to fix the passengers. The skin of the passengers is fine but I'll need to reconstruct the bottom of the door frame. Going to peel back the bottom lip of the skin and slice off the bottom, take it to a sheet metal shop to have them bend me up a piece on the sheetmetal brake.

You must be a mind reader. The only two things slowing me down is the 2.5 and I already have soooooo many projects... but it would absolutely suck to see the car scrapped.

So there it is. Rust thru the drivers floor area is several spots. Also rust on both rear rockers. I did take the custom made side skirts off to see what the condition was underneath. Suprisingly solid. Doors bottoms also have some rust.

If anyone is interested just let me know. I am going to call a few scrap yards this week to get some bids to have it hauled away.

05-25-2013, 12:19 PM
You call that rust?

Brush some POR-15 over it, buy some carpet, put the seats back in, and you're good.

This is rust:

http://forum.grantorinosport.org/uploads/955/floorboardrustreduced.JPG

That hole is twice as big this year as last year and the car has been in dry Texas! Didn't help that one day I climbed in and reached across to get a car seat out and stepped THROUGH the hole.

Get your quotes, the highest one can be the starting bid here. I'm highly interested even if it causes problems with my wife. This car MUST NOT be pancaked and you know that's all they will do, they won't even put it out for parts scroungers, they will just toss it in the squisher and it'll be a pallet of lime green lead painted Chinese desk lamps by the end of summer. You know this.

Water getting trapped under the carpet will rust one ouy like this. It can stay wet for months under there.

It doesn't appear to be a serious problem. Car needs paint so the minor exterior rust can be fixed during that time.

There are people here who will buy this, but it takes time to arrange things. I've got a story to tell that happened to me last month.

I found a post on another forum where a guy was selling a wrecked but drivable LeSabre T-Type. It had been on the market for a long time but I hadn't noticed it. Another friend sent me a link to the post. It was WAY far from Alabama, but I have opportunities for company-paid air travel.

After talking to the owner of the car, we agreed on a price. We agreed that I would fly to his town and drive the car home as soon as my work assignment ended, which was to be 1 to 2 weeks.

We were planning details of the trip via text message and e-mails. One day, I see a post on Facebook where this person told everyone he had scrapped the car. Four or 5 days later he finally answers my e-mails and says the car had been driven over a curb and the transmission pan had a leak. So he scrapped it instead of telling me that it needed work. I am still upset about it, but I feel like there is more to the story that I was never told. This was the car:

http://68.209.87.173/Temp/LesabreT-4r.JPG

Idiots abound in this world.

I've got too many projects now, with my non-running diesel Century and non-running Ciera Convertible. I am lookin for a 3300 Ciera running car for an ECM expiriment, but I can't have any more non-running cars. Otherwise I would be very interested in this Omega. The LeSabre was a running road-worthy car.

Thanks for the link.

I'm afraid of that one due to the "you will hear a loud clicking" "there is a valve bouncing on the piston" in the comments. I need to tune the ECM and tuning a half-blown engine would be a Bad Idea. As in an Epic Bad Idea....

Yeah, that's not that bad. Go to my cardomain page you'll see I removed most of the floor and got it fixed. Mine was so bad the drivers seat bracket bolted to the floor was rusted away.

Really? That's hardcore for the 80s audio enthusiast right there. 7 Band underdash Graphic Equalizer. Even if I don't get the car, I want that EQ (or one like it) to drop in my Torino to complement the Pioneer cassette deck I'm putting in. Unless the EQ is Audiovox brand at which point I'll use my Audiovox shaft cassette deck instead and save the Pioneer for my next B-body ;)

Looks like you're not that far away, like 3.5 hours. It would probably be several weeks before I could get up there, but I did mention the idea to the wifey and she didn't seem completely opposed to the idea. However I really hope somebody else here makes an offer on the car because I've already got a lot of projects going, the car might sit around here for quite a while too. But if it comes down to it, it's a neat car and I don't want to see it get scrapped.

While i do that, can you put up a few more pics? I'd be interested in seeing the instruments, the seats (they don't have to be in the car), the engine bay, maybe any major external damage areas (i.e. rust) up close. Just since i can't just stop by and see it, lol.

I'd love to have it, but I'd need 'till February (tax money time) to pay for the car, and the fuel to drive up there with my F-150 and tow-dolly it back here to Florida. I'm serious if you don't get a closer, sooner offer. I never hired a transporter so I don't know how much $$ that would be. With my truck & the tow dolly it'd just be my fuel cost. I had an '81 Omega years ago & loved it.

I used Agape Transport (broker) when I had the Eurosport transported from your place to AL, and they were pretty reasonable, plus great staff to work with. As an option if you need it shipped PM me and i'll get you the info.

Ann Arbor...that's only about 2 hours from me...of course I got a '84 Olds Ciera Diesel I am going to be getting from a seller in IN soon so that will make 3 cars for me (already may have to store one of them since I can't have all three cars where I am renting at right now lol). Soon as David is done working on Camilla then the diesel will be next.

So why was it parked to begin with? How many miles are on the 2.8 and do you have any of the parts to swap it in?

dhenderz
06-01-2013, 10:29 AM
2.5 is carbed. Can't recall the miles of the 2.8HO. Came out of an X-11, certainly had less than 100k when I pulled the engine. The Omega got parked 20yrs ago because I got a new daily driver. Always planned to restore it, but life gets busy.

Overall the car would be fairly easy to restore. Some rust damage to repair, but nothing compared to others I've tackled. Probably the worst part of a resto would be trying to get rid of the rotten mouse smell that lingers in the car (and in the seats). A person would have to pull every single piece of soft trim from the car and replace it. Even then, not sure how successfull that will be. That problem, along with just being too busy, is the main reason I'm just not looking to tackle this resto anymore.

The 2.5 was completely rebuilt shortly before I parked the car - don't recall the miles now as I type this (will check). Again, its less than 100k with less than 10-15k on the rebuild. I didn't rebuild it because there were any issues. I was headed off to college, didn't want to have any issues and frankly just wanted the summer project of tearing into it. That would have been the summer of 1987. I know that with a shot of gas in the carb and a fresh battery it would fire right up. I've actually run it a few times over the years that its been sitting in the barn. Mostly just because my son said - 'hey dad, lets fire up the old car'. So we did. At this point I would probably scrap the fuel tank and put in a new one - I expect the fuel is closer to varnish than fuel by now. Repops are avail for ~$100.

The 2.8HO is complete. I can snap a pic of it. Realistically it is probably worth more in scrap weight at this point. The 2.8L has come so far in terms of HP with improvements over the years. This one is a 1981 vintage, so ~115HP if I recall correctly.

Other than that probably the most valuable thing on the car is the front fascia since they are so hard to find. One of the lower fins is cracked, but all there. Easy to repair. I am tempted to pull the fascia, sell it for a few hundred $ and then scrap the car & 2.8HO. If anyone is seriously interested in the entire car let me know. I need to make a decision within a reasonable timeframe.

What offers have you got for scrap so far? I really don't want to see the car get scrapped but at the same time, for me to be able to save the car and get it back on the road again, it has to be affordable. I hate to sound like a cheapskate, but I guess I am, lol.

Also, you'd be surprised how well you can get rid of the stinky interior smell. Pull everything out and clean it, replace the padding on the back of the plastic panels, replace the carpet and headliner and "season" the seats by sitting them out in the garage for several months and then give them a good scrubbing with upholstery cleaner. Oh, and a vanilla air freshener too (one under each seat). Then replace the tires, fuel hoses and fluids, and just have fun driving the car as it is.

dhenderz
06-02-2013, 10:36 PM
Just double checked the miles - 92k.

I am thinking $250 for the front fascia, or $500 for the whole car including the 2.8LHO.

Like I said, I could send you a non-refundable deposit if you are willing to go that route. And I wouldn't be scrapping the car.

Thought I would put out one more post on the Omega. I still have it. So far the CL ads have only attracted the scrappers with $250 being the typical bid. At this point I am just ready to get it sold. I would rather not see it end up with a scrapper, so if anyone on here wants it let me know. I would be happy with $300.

I have disassembled the interior to try and begin the 'airing out' process and to get rid of the nasty smell. Easy to just toss the parts back inside and haul it away.

I wish I had somewhere to store and work on the car. I am in Columbus Ohio now, but I don't really have a way to come get it and bring it down here, or anywhere to put it once it's here. Living in a hotel and all whatever I get has to already be able to run and move on its own power.

I'd love to have it, but I'd need 'till February (tax money time) to pay for the car, and the fuel to drive up there with my F-150 and tow-dolly it back here to Florida. I'm serious if you don't get a closer, sooner offer. I never hired a transporter so I don't know how much $$ that would be. With my truck & the tow dolly it'd just be my fuel cost. I had an '81 Omega years ago & loved it. From my earlier post. Can you keep it 'till Feb?

Truth be told if I hadn't started puting mine back together, I'd buy it for that price... the car has such great lines... its always a shame to destroy a running vehicle... simply put in the ad no scrappers, and don't sell for the price of scrap... there are several omegas in the king of the road to fix yours.... and if you must junk it, call them, and it will be a while before they would crush it.

Car sold today to some locals. Not sure of its fate. They loaded the extra X11 engine into the front seat??? Anyway, its gone now.

That was a nice looking car, and rust didn't look too bad especially for a northerner. I would have gladly given $300 if it were local.

On the rust.. My 96 saturn. A piece of plastic. I said its fine. Passed inspection. When i got rid of it. I jumped on the back bumper and it broke off. Because the entire bracket was rotted away. Thats rust problems. My celebrity had rust holes in the door. Replaced that. But being through 2 pa winters its showing some bad surface rust. I already replaced the back bumper. My buddy didnt believe me the chrome was holding it together. Kicked it right in the middle and my foot went through it..

That's too bad. I found a complete Omega sans the sport front clip with a carbed V6 in San Antonio P-N-P. It would make a great donor for quarters. It is very complete too, even had the junior Super Stock II wheels on it. I found this thread too late to assist someone in saving that car.
