Thanks for the offer on the steering column, but Wisconsin is a little far to travel for just that. Sorry :(


I think I'll also have to pass on the blue bench. My interior is ½ gray and ½ brown. I trying to get it all gray (or black) again. Blue, brown and gray would really be a three ring circus. ;) But I let you know if/when I get the buckets out. (I just added my location, Aurora, to my profile.)


If the rain stops, I might go junkayrd hunting this weekend. :)

OK...good luck hunting. Do you have any good boneyards out by Aurora? I usually hit the ones around the Blue Island area, but haven't been there in awhile...if you come across any good doors on an Elky or 2 dr Malibu please let me know. I'll also keep my eyes peeled for a gray or brown bench seat for ya. Came across a 5th gen Elky just the other day in a boneyard (Speedway) in Chicago Heights on Rte 30. It was completely trashed except for the glass...sorry to say it has whats left of a brown vinyl straight bench seat, which is shreaded. This one good probably qualify for the "Most abused Elkys list." :(

i have a black steering column with column shift if youre interested...

EDIT: i also have a gray bench in my '83 elky i could sell or trade if you really want it. i'm thinking of swtching it to buckets and console anyway...

the u-pull-it in blue island has a gold colored 4-dr malibu with a black interior and a burgundy/burgundy '81 el camino but the interior is pretty much shot cause someone knocked in the windshield. had a non a/c heater box i was gonna get but the controls were gone :-(

Hey Rich,

I will soon be changing my daily driver high mileage 83 305/lock-up 350 drivetrain to a TPI 383/700r4. This will be sometime in late Feb/March. The carb still works great! I will shoot you a note once I pull it if you don't get one by then. Good luck hunting. I think we all need to keep updates on any junk yard trips that show promise. Good luck hunting.
