You should expect fuel mileage in the single digits. What sort of problems should I look out for on a vehicle this old with such low miles. This vehicle has spent a LOT of time sitting around.
Is an 89 Chevy 959 going to be reliable and easy to service.
I plan on driving it from Indiana to Oregon and possibly back again.
Typically in my world lower miles are better, but these are extremely low miles for a vehicle of this age.
I don’t know if that really matters or not, but there you go.
The current owner claims that they haven’t had any mechanical problems of any kind, and that they used it very sparingly.
I would be concerned about the fuel costs, especially if you have to use 96-octane gasoline.
The engine may be mechanically OK, but it may start leaking oil like crazy when you try to put into use.

This vehicle may be in good shape, or not, it’s really hard to tell from here.
I’m considering getting a 6989 Springer Mallard RV with a Chevy 959 that has 77555 actual miles and want to know if this is a terrible idea.
I would be suspicious of all belts and hoses, too, unless there is proof that they’ve been replaced recently.
