Hello, I am selling my 1989 Swift Gti. It is prepped for AutoX right now, with a Sparco Sprint V seat, Sparco harness, Sparco sidemounts, Calmini front strut brace, full gauges, aluminum pedals, shift knob, SFI-approved fire extinguisher, Sparco hood and hatch pins, etc. All safety equipment is FIA approved, including Grade 8 hardware throughout. All internal wiring has been re-routed and protected. I have all the paperwork on this car since its purchase, including every service, registration, odometer verifications, parts, right down to the original window price tag and original sales receipt!! :shock: Thanks!!

Forgot to mention, it's on 15" TSW wheels, brand new, and KYB GR2 struts. The car comes with a full spare set of GR2's, air filter, NGK Iridium plugs, etc.

There is little to no rust anywhere on the entire car. I have many more pics, I will try and get them up soon. As far as the AutoX goes, with the current wheels, it would be in Modified Class. If you were to put OEM size wheels and tires on it, you could run the car in Stock Mod, and if you put an interior in it, you could run it in Stock.

And that also depends on what organization/league you will be racing it with specifically. What I explained was SCCA classes. Thanks!!

Just to you all know, I am actually a Subaru guy, I picked this up for AutoX and playing around. I don't know if I'm asking too much, I simply would prefer to have this car go to an enthusiast as it is a very clean car. Please feel free to ask any questions or make offers, I really need the garage space. 4 cars = angry wife. :lol: I will add more pics to the link later today, including close-ups. Thanks!!

Very nice car with good parts, seems to be in excellent condition too. I'd suggest you to try your luck through E-bay. I'm sure you could get at least $2500.00 for it. Do you still have the complete interior? Give it a try buddy.

Yeah, I'm also wondering if you still have the full interior. It's a nice car, but I'm looking for more of a street car. I suppose it could be restored. Do all of the lights and the heater work? Are there any issues that would prevent it from being a daily driver?

That car is badass. Hmmmm. Can you drive it on a rainy day with that hood scoop, and is the racing seat on a slide to where a 6'4" guy can fit ?

All the lights still work perfectly, and the car is currently licensed and registered for street use. There are no issues that would prevent it from being a street car. I unfortunately do not have the stock interior anymore. You can drive it in the rain with the hood scoop, and it would be adjustable for any height.

I would try Ebay, but being a Subaru enthusiast, I would prefer the car go to someone like you guys would appreciate it more. Thats why the price is so low, and I just dont have space with my rally cars and family cars. And my wife and I are due with our first baby in 4 weeks!!
