I have UPGRADED to a 1st Gen :whohoo:

I picked up a 97 Intrepid ES......3.5 motor...a/s.....infinity sound system......sunroof with 117k miles. Got it for $650.

The good: well it's a ES with a pretty straight body and it still runs

The bad: it's going to need some paint it the worst way and it has a possible rod knock.....I'll look into that 1st.

anyway here's the pictures..........

I couldn't let it go to the boneyard like that.

Looks like you will be doing another paint job after all.

she looks to be in pretty good shape though nice find.
I think i'm go with the factory color on this one dunno.....maybe a touch of blue flake to it.

Looks good RJ! Coverign all your bases I see, haha. 3.5 with A/S. She's definitley a keeper!

well it looks like a rod knock at the #5 cylinder.....I haven't dropped the pan yet to be sure I just did a quicky test removing the plug wire one at a time until I found it.

so here's whatz on my plate this month.....

1. finish color sanding the last door on pearl white trep and that's all done. Same car swap in a 300m rear swaybar and trans fluild pan drop.

2. swap in another 2.7 motor into the 99 ES......get that done hopefully by this weekend (getting extra 2.7 tranny with motor 80k miles on both)

3. get my 2 gen 3.5 short block build started.

4. start tearing into the motor on this es
