Badge # 630/1000 Belize Green w/sunroof

After much consideration and some regret I've decided to put my '92 Galant VR-4 up for sale. Currently there are 212,000 miles on the odometer and chassis. A JDM motor was installed at some point before I purchased this vehicle but I do not know at what mileage.

I've put a LOT of time and money into this car over the past 2+ years, most of which is maintenance. I was concentrating on the mechanics of the car instead of finishing off the interior quirks and painting the exterior.

The interior is in good condition and I've replaced worn items here and there, including some small upgrades like smoked Diamante door light covers and a 1G leather shift boot with EVO 8 shift knob. I've also replaced the steering wheel with a 1G N/A wheel (vinyl, no leather wrap).

The exterior seems to have been painted before I purchased the car and the exterior changes I've made are not the same color. The wingless trunk I installed is from a standard Galant which is a different shade of green, the JDM gas door is gray, the passenger rear dog leg is from a black VR-4, and the recently installed JDM front bumper I rattle canned semi-gloss black (was white). The edge of the OEM hood is rusting so the car will need a new hood eventually.

Currently the car is running great although the transmission is intermittently notchy. I just swapped it in last summer from a crashed 1G which was a '94 with the better internals. The timing belt has rub marks which have been there since I purchased the car, I was going to wait until I installed the new motor I was building to buy a new timing belt but that is no longer the case. I would highly recommend a timing belt job ASAP to the next owner and driver of this vehicle.
