Refurbished by Coca-cola in 1997 and given away as part of their promotion.More info in this article http://www.icta.club/the-famous-surge-checker-taxicabs-will-brandum/3.8 Chevy V-6 with turbo 350 automatic transmission. New paint, new battery, new alternator, new carpet, new tires.The car was hydro blasted to remove all old paint and to ensure that there was no body filler. Replacement panels were installed, dents removed, interior refurbished.As with all cars this age it does have a few minor quirks. The headlights don’t turn on. Carb is probably due for a good service. Overall the car runs and drives with no major issues. There have been some previous repairs to the floor and the spare tire area in the trunk. I noticed a little bit of seepage around the transmission pan. New gasket included but not installed.All the gauges work. There is a stereo, however it is not hooked up.I have a clean title in my name. The mileage may go up as I do drive it occasionally.Feel free to ask questions or request more pics.Here is a link to a walk around video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlkHz_3c4ycand a driving video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iuc63CjiyLYThis car is hard to find and gets so much attention!
