1989 Turbo firefly will need a clutch pretty soon. 280xxxkm. Either a good parts car or maybe a weekend fixup job. Really classy $12 flat black spraybomb paint job and rear tinted windows. In the past year or so I have replaced the battery and alternator, rear control arms, rear brakes (drums, cylinders, shoes, hardware, bearings) front brakes (pads & rotors). The transmission has what I believe to be a bad input shaft bearing, when you punch it or downgear to use as an engine brake it sounds rather ugly but I've been driving with it like that for probably 10,000km or so with no problems whatsoever. Doesnt really matter as I have a spare transaxle from my first firefly which was good when that car died.

Car's got a bit done to it. Cold air intake with K&N filter, underdrive crank pulley, 2" exhaust from turbo back (all mandrel bent if I recall), DIY short shifter with a chopped shifter and bumpstops welded in, DIY boost controller, boost guage, grant racing steering wheel.

Comes with a bunch of spare parts from my previous firefly that died on me a few years ago.
radiator & hoses
electric fan & shroud
ign wires
wiper motor
head + valvetrain
intake manifold w/ throttle body + rail and injectors
2 broken turbos, could be used for parts maybe?
airflow meter
some other odds and ends
