It's time for me to liquidate some vehicles. I'll probably regret selling this one the most, since it's such a nice example.

The first is what used to be my Dad’s 1992 Galant VR-4 #282/1000. It was purchased by him when it was one year old, and had 22K on it. The chassis now has 135K on it, and is in excellent shape. It spent most of its life sitting in my parents garage when it wasn’t being driven, which as you can tell by the mileage was periodic at best. I’d say in the last three years it’s had less than 500 miles put on it. I did all of the maintenance since we bought it, and I’ve replaced a lot of the original parts with upgraded stuff. I got it from him about a year and a half ago, and proceeded to go through it again to replace what needed to be replaced.

Here is a rundown of the vehicle:
Chassis has 132K on it, has original paint, in very good shape. It’s not perfect, but it still looks awesome when it’s cleaned up.
Engine has about 500 miles on it since I rebuilt it.
New OEM rings
New OEM bearings
New OEM timing belt and tensioner
New OEM water pump
Rebuilt cylinder head
Stock cams and compression
All new OEM gaskets and seals everywhere

Turbo kit is the original HKS T4 turbine kit:
T4 cast manifold, ceramic coated
T42 turbo with a .48a/r T4 hot side
HKS cast O2 housing
50mm HKS racegate that dumps back into the O2 housing
Heat shields (that I didn’t install, since I like the look of the ceramic coated kit)
Cast aluminum lower IC pipe.

Other things I’ve done to the car:
5 lug swap with OEM 97 Eclipse 5 spoke chrome wheels with fresh tires
750cc injectors
Eprom ECU with custom chip with revised timing maps
HKS VPC
Apexi AFC
Spearco FMIC with the 2-178 core and 2.5” stainless pipes
4 bolt rear end
DSM steering wheel
ACT 2900lb clutch that for some reason feels much lighter than that.
Supra fuel pump
Race-built trans, with the older, stronger, 3-4 setup and double synchro 2nd gear. The best shifting trans I’ve ever driven in ANY DSM.
Car has KYB AGXs on the front and GR-2s on the rear, but they could be replaced due to age at this point.
H&R springs.
Full 3” exhaust with high flow cat, and the car is QUIET. Not gonna get pulled over driving this around.
Old school VDO 0-30psi boost gauge on the A-pillar.
4WS was eliminated recently when one of the lines to the rear started leaking, which lead to the 4bolt swap.
Car uses Talon shifter, with black leather shift boot.
New alternator installed.
JDM clear corner lights
Front suspension has some Energy Suspension bushings installed, along with front swaybar bushings.

OEM stuff:
AC still blows ice cold.
OEM radio with tape deck/CD combo.
Sunroof car, works fine.
Have both OEM keys to the car, but no FOB.
Car has original owners manual and window sticker.
ABS no longer works, since I didn't feel like swapping the tooth rings on the hubs when I did the 5 lug conversion.

I'm going to miss this car, because of how nice it is. The only problem is that I never drive it. I was in it recently, and noticed that although the PA inspection ran out on it, they write the mileage on the stickers from when it was inspected last. Well, since it got inspected in October of 07, it's had about 300 miles put on it. Hopefully somebody else will put it to better use.

I will include whatever stock parts I have that I removed from this car, including the stock air can, K&N filter, MAF, steering wheel, etc.

I don't *have* to sell this car, but I think there's probably someone out there that wants a nice, clean, NOT HACKED GVR4, that was modified nicely.





Thanks for the space. I'll be posting another one shortly, although I haven't quite committed to selling the other one yet.

Nate

Double bump for Nate! If I had $9K to spend on a GVR4 this would be the one I'd buy.

Man don't part it out and don't discount the car. Its to nice to do either. If you really want it gone stick it on ebay, the dsm/evo crowd will see it and snatch it up.

That has to have the nicest original green paint I have ever seen. The green seem to lead the fade race usually.

I wouldn't say the price is too high, per se (would need to see it in person to make a final judgement), but keep in mind that right now is a terrible time to sell anything; especially something like these cars, being the banks are being stingy as it is. It's a shame, but will need to remain patient.

I have so many things to sell myself (including one or two of my cars) and I'm holding out for a few months at least (I hope) to put it all up.

Unless you're desperate, just keep this mindful and good luck...Btw, never seems like this place is the best to sell these if they're beyond the < $4-5k "average" examples.

Since you asked, I would say the price is too high for what it has! Good luck with the sale though!

Seems like a pretty clean and unhacked VR4 which is always sweet to find. I'm curious if our cars are really worth as much as some of us are trying to sell them for though I'd love to think id get the money back that I have in mine aslong as it's done right and clean, but I know I probably wouldn't. I think I would sit on it for awhile and definitely not part it out. Too nice of a rare car. Good luck with the sell

Imho it is worth close to the asking price, He can aske what he want's or feels it is worth.
Please don't lowball people with 4k offers, I mean, What do you expect when you say something like it is worth 4k?

Car looks good and clean, Good luck with the sale.

Honestly, I'd love to keep it, but after driving it 300 miles since last inspection, I realize that I just don't need it. Thanks for the compliments, guys.

Guys, please show some respect for others.

If you think the price is too high, don't buy it.

Posting unecessary and derogatory remarks in someone elses for sale thread is a sure way to earn the same scorn and derision for yourself if you ever try and sell something.

This board has a long memory.

Good luck with the sale.

Yes, thank you John. I removed the BS from the thread. Let's keep it on topic. Inflammatory statements will not be tolerated. If you would like to discuss the price (since Nate asked) in a constructive and respectful manner that's great.

Got a few more pictures from the digital camera. Price is $8500/obo now. I would remove parts from the car to lower the price, specifically the HKS kit. On to some interior pics!

I would love to have it.I would even pay the 9k I just need to be out of school.If you decide not to sell ill contact you in a year lol. Im the biggest fan of period correct mods so the HKS kit should stay on there.

It is the divided T4 manifold, but the exhaust housing is not divided, although it is the original HKS piece; at least I have to assume it's the original, since I now have two of the exhaust housings, both of which are identical, and have "HKS" cast right into it.

The turbine housing is only a .48 a/r, probably because the turbo itself isn't huge.

Contemplating parting it, but only if the chassis is the first thing to go, and I'd really hate to tear apart soa nice running car. Oh well.

Very nice setup.

What's your secret for keeping the exhaust note quiet? Is it due to the CAT or do you have a big resonator installed? I like a deep but muffled sound coming from the header/dp area myself.

Tks and good luck with the sale.

Price drop - $8K.
