I thought i'd never see the day that i'd be getting rid of my blue machine but times have changed.

1990 Turbo Sprint/Firefly 292k km's 212k km's on the engine in it with newer gaskets of this year , 5spd manual(only gears 1-4 work),

Bad:
-Crack along the lower portion of the windshield.
-Needs new rear brakes.
-Needs new outer door handle (just broke need to get in through passenger side)
-Driver side window needs a new regulator for winding the window up.
-Needs an alignment also two front tires. I'll throw in 2 old tires i have with decent tread.
-small casual oil leak ( For the life of me i've changed all the gaskets and still cant find the culprit.)
- I redid the roof but used the wrong silicone so this just needs new silicone to hold the roof along the seams.
-Hood flipped up on me when forgetting to close it all the way, a ding here or their.
-front right side signal light busted. I'll include a replacement.
-Needs new speedo cable. I put a new one in but apparently wasn't a long enough cable.
-Manual 5spd however only gears 1-4 work. I haven't been able to find a replacement so haven't bothered swapping it out.

After all that.
The good:
- Strong motor, never let me down. 292km's on the body but engine is 212k which I put in with new head/intake/exhaust gaskets.
- New gaskets for the turbo were replaced.
- Hollowed out down pipe
- Aurora leads
- 1year old rear shocks
- New wheel bearings front and back, but because i didn't get an alignment done in time the front left will need a new wheel bearing.
- Carpet is 1year old with new insulation.
- Rust fixed on the underbody and sealed the ground effects for no motor water to sit inside.
- undercoated the main area's that normally get rusty.
- spark plugs done and oil changed on a regular basis.
- Real blue original seats in good shape.
- Comes with 4 matching rims. 2 of which are on the rear with new tires. The front has worn tired on it but will last a trip home.
- No tears in the steering wheel.
- All light bulbs in the front changed. Good condition working fog lights.
- 1year old battery
- Aircared

I'll give until Wednesday for anyone who is willing to pick it up for 1100$ Firm As is. No low ballers or any of that crap. It has the bad but
has been maintained to a point anyone willing to give it some love and attention, it'll be back up in tip top shape in no time.

I just don't have the time to do the small things to the car anymore. If no one is interested in this by wednesday than I will part it out.

So anyone who wants to call dibs on any parts please pm me and first come first serve. I'll reply to pm's with prices to those who want them,
but for now the car is for sale as whole.

1000$ firm As is. Located in coquitlam, B.C.
I'll get pictures up as soon as I can.

Thanks
Mike

This car will need rear brakes if sold as a whole vehicle. Still available though.
