So I checked this car out. I had high expectations since the car had started selling at $11k and the pictures make it look mint. I went with the funds expecting to drive this car home.

The interior is in excellent condition except for some wear on the drivers floor carpet, shifter and steering wheel.
I would give the interior a 9/10 if you cleaned it up and put floormats inside. I did notice a good amount of cigarette ash in the ashtray though.
There was no rust anywhere on the car that I could find. All the bottoms of the doors were good, the underside was very clean.

The engine started up without blowing any smoke, reved without blowing any smoke also and didn't hear any lifter tick The car drove smooth. There was a small oil leak comming from the rubber half moon camshaft seal, or from the oil feed line for the turbo, not sure which. It wasn't a big deal but after reading it was leak free was kind of alarming. I also noticed some fluid on top/near the fill bolt of the transmission and was told it had recenlty had the fluid changed. There were a few things under the hood held down by tape like the relay box and air box area. The engine bay was dirty. I noticed a good amount of wear on the outer edges of the tires from the rallying of the car. The suspension seemed kinda dry rotted/needing replacement, although it still rode smooth.

I hadn't given the exterior any thought at all because it looked mint except the for stickers which I had planned on removing. This was the bad part. I don't have the resources to do auto body work and this car needed to be re-painted. It had numerous dents, dings, scratches, and lots of touchup paint. The mirrors were worn in spots down to yellow fiberglass, and the clearcoat had some spiderwebbing over a rear fender. The passenger side bumper clips were missing from the bottom and it was held on with foil tape. The body looked like that of a car with over 100k it threw me off. I left to have some lunch and think about it, the only way I'd be happy with the car is if I painted it and I hadn't factored that in, so I passed.

This was 1 day after I bought this 20yr old Galant and cleaned it up. It had like 120,000 on the odo.





I think it is worth 5k or so.

GSX_TC. Yes it is it was converted to R134a

Just a heads up guys we got most of the stickers off. It seemed like a big issue for a lot of people so we took care of that.
We will get better pictures next week.




Also we have another VR-4 on the way!
Check it out
77,000 miles or 124,000 km
Price will be in the 10-11k range

CAR IS SOLD!!

That is correct we will know about the red car more when it arrives. The cars are inspected in Japan and there was no undercarriage rust, but we wont make that claim until it arrives.

Rivsu also posted the red one as an example.
Here's a fine example of a Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 that recently sold at auction for ¥207,000 JPY. This vehicle could have been landed and out the door from us for as low as $5,000 USD! Auction details: click

Where does the $8-9k come in?

Come on man, why all the hate? Are you going to tell your boss not to bother paying you this week, that you don't want to be compensated for your work? These guys like to be paid as well.

Heh, wait 'til the see the underside of the red/grey car A thing (or car in this case) is worth what someone is willing to pay, and the owner can price it however they like. That being said and as I've mentioned before, GVR4s go for next to nothing in Japan, look at their sold at auction prices! How much is it worth it to have it shipped here to your door? That's between you and the importer.

That's like $1700. I'd like to see an RS go for that low.

Oh, I didn't know owning a business meant working for free and not making a profit. GTFO

Profit and gouging are two different things Given the discrepency in price between two vendors looking at teh same car, I know who I'd have help import my car!

How much did Rivsu want? Their pretty expensive too. They basically only care about stocking Skylines though.

Buying and selling cars is not about how much they go for. It's what they worth to the right buyer.
Even average used cars like the above Burgundy Galant. Just because one dealer says they "could" have sold it for less don't mean crap.
If their business plan is to make 10% on each sale, then they'll have to sell a lot of cars to pay the rent. No dealer can stay in business with that kind of profit margin.

Well said Gabor, my thoughts exactly.

One would think we would want importers to keep bringing these cars in and making them available. But instead we moan and groan about them making a profit. This will make them skip over these cars in the future knowing that lowballers and tire kickers are the only interested buyers.
