Well i think its time to let her go. i bought this Galant with little over 100k miles in early 2012. Washington state car, non-sunroof, Belize green, all stock. has ~132k on her currently.

motor was built in early 2013 by good friend of mine. he actually spec'ed it all out to make sure she would be good for a long ass time and make good power.

i honestly daily drove her for the first year (~10-15k miles). then randomly daily for 3months at a time after (~15-20k over 4 years). i have no attention span when it comes to cars. i have had no less than 6 other projects during the time i have own the Galant. but would still take the 1+hour drive each way through north seattle traffic to/from work without issue. engine and trans are smooth! exhaust is a little loud sometimes. engine has probably 10k mines on it, call it 15k to be safe. i currently drive her a couple days a week (8mile drive to work now). i have modified her since the day i bought her. sometimes slowly sometimes she would be down for months while doing the next round of mods.

condition: i believe that honesty is best when selling a car, so ill tell it how it is and i see it. hope it doesnt read like this car is a pile (or that im being negative), because its far from it. just isnt show quality.
like i have said before, she is a Washington state car. so other than a random paint chip on the hood and random trivial things like that there is NO RUST. never had a problem removing bolts or suspension, etc. for a 1991 the overall condition is pretty good.
~most of dings/dents fixed. still visible rear quarter above taillight (see pics) and the one on the hood.
~clear coat is gone off spoiler. oxidation is starting on the trunk lid (but no where else) quoted $500.
~right rear dogleg has a dime side missing paint (see pic/touchup?).
~windshield will collect moisture if not driven every day, believe it to be the seal. (was quoted $150-200)
~think there is an exhaust leak at the downpipe, and tail pipe doesnt come to end of bumper (seems to bother a couple people).
oh, and as your quest for power goes up, the clutch will go out im sure (2600+street disc). we got her to spin once while out tuning after repeated pulls with 2 people in car. boost is at 20something psi now, and with one person in the car it hasnt done it since.

exterior 7.5/10
interior 8/10
drivetrain 9/10 (needs more tuning time, rich at cruise/wot)

bought early 2012
motor march 2013
suspension early 2015
cams mid 2015
t4 kit late 2015
timing belt/water pump april 2016
SMIM late 2016


reason for selling?... lot has changed in last 5 years. idea of the car has changed several times even. i am excited to build/change things on her, but i am not as excited to drive. i will most likely be moving to a RWD V8 car. plus im bored, time for a new build. not to mention i have another car im building currently. i really dont drive as much as i would like.
*im not hard up for money, ill drive her or let her sit till the right buyer shows up with cash.*



***THIS CAR IS SOLD***

good luck to new owner. says he plans to finish where i left off. make some power/have fun.

Re: FS: 1991 Galant VR4 #613/2000... N. Seattle, WA $8500

Honestly, for as easy as it is, I think if you painted your door trims and re-took the pics, it'd get more people interested, as lame as that sounds.

I think it's probably also worth saying that for all the people who think they can buy a cheaper shell (maybe rusty) and recreate it for less... you can't. There are a ton of really great parts here, and if this motor was built by Bryan, I'd trust it to hell and back.

Re: FS: 1991 Galant VR4 #613/2000... N. Seattle, WA $8500

thanks for the kind words.

yeah it seems like a lot of money, and well it is, but for what the car is and has, its a deal. you can change whatever you dont like on this car for cheaper than building one.

yes, Bryan build the shortblock, and really has helped me most the way keeping me on a good path. has helped me finding parts. hell i bought the car from him, short block, turbo kit...countless things lol. Bryan build/spec'ed the shortblock, i assembled most all the accessory stuff. Bryan did the cam swap/timing belt/lifters later also. the ported head i got off a member on here. Bryan will hopefully help me little more with the tuning also. just havent been really motivated for that (just runs rich). motor is smooth as hell. the best built motor i have had. its solid.

the passenger door trims HAVE BEEN PAINTED! just havent taken pics. also painted the windshield moldings. and i had the paintless dent guy pull pretty much all the dings/dents. although the big one above the tail light is still little visible next to the light. ill try to wash the car and take some pics whenever it isnt raining (friday?). maybe ill check into the window not working too. but i have been working on the Nova...

couple new pictures:













last pic there is showing the big dent that was fixed as best he could. something about double walled steel and being up on the taillight. he also did a bunch of the other little dings, and a little crease he found in the left rear door. still isnt perfect but its also a 26yo car. there are still a couple random dings as small as a dime. think he got everything bigger.
the imperfection on the hood and whats above the drivers taillight are as good as they will get without a bodyshop.

*** UPDATE ***

worked on her again today. after some more troubleshooting not only did it have those 3 messed up wires in the door harness, apparently it had a bad passenger switch, and spare i had only went down lol. but all 4 windows now WORK OFF THE SWITCHES! all 4 windows go up and down off master, and each window goes up and down off its switch. so all is right.
car is put back together. drove around some today with all the windows down, was good times.


edit. ill be swapping stock steering wheel back in. and i guess i never uploaded interior pics (but interior shots are in walkaround vid). so i think ill try to get some fresh ones taken in next day or 2, probably exterior shots also.

you can pull the heads, pull the lifters out and toss them in the trash, where they belong...
this car had a DOD delete. comp cam, ls7 lifters, etc.etc. so luckly I do tbhave to deal with any of that.

I want a 15+ SS, but dont have that kind of cash to spend.. G8 is an awesome car. driven 4 of them I think. all solid, handle damn well for a 4000lbs car. obviously its got the engine. these last two with all the bolt on mods really wake up.

Not trying to be a dick. Good pictures sell cars, that's all I meant.

If the car runs well, I think it will eventually fetch the 7.5k price tag.

sorry, im annoyed in general, so everyone sounds like a dick right now. selling this car is just a loosing battle. i feel im selling it for half what its worth, and still its not enough.

at this point i dont have room for it or care to take the time to part it out. and it would really suck to part it out, as it runs and drives perfectly. hauls ass. and with some more boost/tuning/clutch it will go REALLY fast, but i just dont care anymore. completely have lost interest in going further or spending more money.

what would i do to the car if i was keeping it?
more boost
more tuning to match that
clutch
evo seats

what does this car NEED?
someone to do the stuff above.

i will sell to a local buyer cheaper. as i wont have to deal with out of state buyer/shipping/etc. also i would have to go get an emergency title something, cost me 100bucks alone. local buyer its 12bucks, or just transfer at the licensing office.

thanks. i feel that it is also. i got a deal on this car when i bought it. but even still, so much has gone into the engine/suspension/turbo/etc.


hell i just added up the bigger ticket items, not even nit picking, or full retail... $6500 + the shell... end of July, im parting this out...

I'd bet most people willing to spend 7.5k on a Galant are probably pretty particular about what they are buying. Couple that with a handful of people actually interested in buying a Galant VR-4 in the first place, and it's a perfect recipe for a losing battle.

If I were buying your car, here's what I would look for:

-Good high resolution images of every inch of the car. That includes interior, exterior, engine bay, undercarriage, etc. Like I said, good pictures sell cars. A serious buyer will want to see everything I listed.

-Post a video of the car running/driving. Like good pictures, a video of the car in action will alleviate any doubts as to how well the car typically functions.

-Post a log. Personally, if I were buying a heavily modified car like yours, I'd want to see a 3rd gear pull. A log will tell you how well the car is set up, and show any underlying issues that might be present.

Do that stuff, and I think you'll be much more likely to attract a serious buyer in the near term. I sold 1813 a few years back for asking price, and it wasn't nearly as nice as your car. But, I did all the stuff I mentioned above, and it was gone in under 30 days.

At the end of the day, your ad has to sell the car. Sadly, you're selling a Galant VR-4, not an air-cooled Porsche. These turds don't sell themselves.
