I have owned this car since Dec of 2003. I started with it as a bone stock car with 113,000 miles at a bank repo lot. I have spent 9 years bringing this car to this point. It is a 9.8(maybe better) out of 10 both inside and out. I am extremely anal and nothing has been left to chance. I daily drove it for 5 years before getting really serious about the restoration. In the last 4 years, it has not seen snow/ice and only got wet to wash it and getting caught in the rain at MOD one year.
I would not hesitate to drive this anywhere. As you can see from the info below. It is running a very safe "street setup" tune of 361whp at only 18psi on Shell 93 octane gas.
I am asking $13,000 firm. That is $2000 less than appraisal value and that was before the interior restoration/dynomat work, EVO III tranny, drive shaft, engine bay, radiator, piping, battery, and ECMlink V3 w/SD setup dyno tuned work.
This car is insured for $20,000 at Hagerty Insurance (costs $400 a year). It is worth every penny.
If you have any questions, email me at [email protected] or PM me here with your phone number and I will call you.
The only "bad" thing, drips about 3 drops a month from the oil pan gasket.
