i'm ready to list this project car for sale. i need to thin the herd a little bit going into winter.

if you followed my project thread, this car got new rockers and floors last year. i used fatmat on the floors. the very clean interior is box stock except for a 91 shifter and the suzuki parts group sheep skin seat covers on the front. this car has good heat, no ac option.

i installed a new clutch when i first got the car. the engine runs great. i installed a new timing belt about 6 months ago. there are many powder coated parts under the hood and it has a fabricated induction set, cone filter and micro pore filter sock.

i went through the brakes a few months ago and installed a new left front brake caliper with a braided brake hose. a new right front caliper will go with the car along with the other 3 braided brake hoses.

i rebuilt the suspension in the spring with kyb gr2 struts, new control arms/ ball joints, and very rare calmini customs springs. the exhaust was new a few months ago as well and runs a vintage ansa twinspout tip.

i used glass headlights, clear euro corner lights, and led front turn signals. the car rides on rare suzuki 7 spoke wheels which i had powder coated and kumho tires that are in great shape. there's a 3 year old sony head unit, am/fm, cd, remote and removable faceplate, and new speakers front and rear installed with a new antenna, ready to roll.

overall, the car is in very good mechanical condition and doesn't look bad but the paint is old and there is some rust at the tops of the rear wheel wells that needs to be taken care of. i replaced all of the locks, everything is keyed alike and works. a kid tagged my rear bumper early this year and put a 2" split in the rear bumper on the left side. it isn't bad and i never took the time to reset the bumper but it isn't a hard repair, maybe an hour total. i just had too many other projects this summer to deal with it.

i'd like to recover the money i have in parts with the wheels and tires alone being half my asking price of $2500.

this car is in turn key, drive away condition with a clean, correct title and 118,000 miles. drive this car home. :thumb
