1990 Sprint 1.0 5 spd manual
I just got my old and very first Sprint back today and drove it back from squamish.
Runs like a champ but has a few issues, I owned this car for 10 years from 93 to 2003 it never let me down.
Muffler was falling off, will have to get it fixed first.
but the engine has 68,000 k's on it since I put it in as a rebuilt.
338k on the whole car.
floor has no bad holes but rockers are gettin rusty
Good rubber on 12's
tranny shifts fine no grind, but it does not like to shift down from 3rd to 2nd.
I am pretty sure the car will pass air care
it will need a rad fan switch which I will supply also a heater core.
which I have also.
this will make a good decent beater driver that will get great mileage
asking $500
After tomorrow it will be out in Aldergrove where I will have to store it
I have 6 cars in my driveway right now and have to clear a couple.
