Want to sell #1209/2000 (known history on this forum)
It's currently in Round Rock TX, 40 minutes north of the Austin airport.
Clean Texas title in my name.
Colorado license plates are now expired, but they will come with the car unless you don't want/need them.
This is a RUST FREE lifelong Denver Colorado car until I brought it to Austin.
The car runs & drives. (I've driven it over 60 miles in Denver at elevation)
(Edit): It will need to be trailered/towed mainly due to the low-hanging intercooler being at risk of scraping.
There's oil in the coolant, but no coolant in the oil. I think it might be mixing in the turbo. I've flushed it 3 times, but it continues to mix. There seems to be ZERO sign of water in the engine oil.
The head gasket seems good. Previous owner was an Iraq war vet, & claimed that he had installed a new head gasket within the last 4 months. (This was in April 2018.)
Compression is even across all 4 cylinders.
(Edit): It could be the turbo, it could be the head gasket, or it could be the head. I haven't looked into it yet, so I'm not sure exactly what the problem is, but the car does run & drive with no overheating issues.
There is repairable body damage on the passenger side rear door & quarter panel from getting gently side swiped by a road sign. (missing rear passenger outside door handle)
There's also minor repairable front bumper damage from the same incident. (Just one crack along the very bottom side of the bumper.)
The foglight lenses are also broken/gone, but the wiring is still there.
The different color driver's side front fender was put on by a previous owner after a minor parking lot bump. (The story that I was told was that his wife had popped the clutch in a parking lot & had bumped it into the metal structure where you return shopping carts.)
One of the top aluminum mounting brackets for the big ETS intercooler has popped off, so the intercooler is leaning a little bit low, & is at risk of scraping if you're not careful. There are no boost leaks. The mounting bracket simply needs to be aluminum-welded back on. This is the main reason why I haven't been driving the car anywhere but around the shop whenever I need to move it.
The car runs & drives fine, but I would recommend trailering it just to be safe because of the low hanging intercooler, & the undiagnosed oil in the coolant problem.

There's probably more that I'm forgetting off the top of my head. I can answer specific questions & send detailed pictures if anyone is interested & wants to email me.
The car comes with a folder filled with records of ownership history, & both parts & labor receipts totaling well over $31,000 from every year dating back to 2009-2010. (yes, I said over $31k in receipts!)
The car also comes with a few plastic bins of extra & original parts, including another disassembled 4g63 engine (including the block, & everything minus the head). Plus the original set of wheels with brand new Michelin all season tires.
I bought the car in April 2018 in Denver & towed it back home to Austin. I had good intentions for the car, but after discovering the oil in the coolant & after it got damaged, I've lost my motivation for the car. I'm an American muscle car & truck guy, but I was hoping to introduce myself to JDM cars with this GVR4. It's become more than I can reasonably handle on my own, & I have other priorities. I've been focusing on two of my 72 year old father's long-term full restoration project cars instead.
I've kept the battery on a trickle charger, & I've started the car up at least twice a month since April 2018 to keep the fluids circulating. I've also driven it back & forth while moving it around the shop several times. The car has been stored indoors the entire time I've had it.
I'm asking $2,600 for the car with all of the parts included. (including the extra disassembled engine & the original wheels with brand new Michelin's)
$3,200 if you want me to include a set of PERFECT front & rear Evo 8 seats that have been thoroughly wrapped in bubble wrap & stored indoors. (can send pictures)
First come first serve!
Shipping/towing is up to the buyer. All extra parts can fit inside the car. I will assist however you need me to, but shipping/towing will ultimately be the responsibility of the buyer.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions, or want any specific pictures. I have plenty of pictures that I can send.
I'm an honest & transparent seller.
