#1644 For Sale - Carbondale, IL - $11,000


Apr 5, 2020
Murphysboro, IL
I bought this car from "frankdcannon" in Seaford, Delaware back in January 2022, and had it shipped to Carbondale, IL. I have been so overwhelmed with projects that I have only had time to get the power steering re-installed. Everything else is the same as when I bought it. Because that is the case, I just copied/pasted from the original ad. Here is the info:

The current mileage is 146954. Below is the build sheet, with maintenance records, a few photos, and a dyno chart. I have the receipts for everything and can supply them if need be. Tuned by RT tuning in PA on 6/24/19. Making 370 whp and 350 wtq. I have a video of the run as well. Let me know if you want/need more pictures. The car is in the best shape of its life. everything works, and I mean everything. The only issues I know of are that, below 60 degrees fahrenheit, the car's idle fluctuates up and down, and the engine could use a valve cover with large breathers, and a catch can. Some minor oil leaks around the valve cover gasket have started to appear with higher boost pressures. The car is, no BS, rust free.
I am a professional automotive technician and shop owner. I have OCD and this car has been my project for over 4 years. I have brought the car as close to perfection mechanically as I can, accomplished the goals I set for myself and the car, and I am just ready for a break.
Please feel free to ask any questions, and thank you for checking out my VR4!
