Still lingering, kinda like a chili and beer fart

The time has come to pass my Galant VR4 along to somebody else who has the heart to care for it. My focus this year is to finally do some door to door racing in the SCCA. I recently found a tow vehicle, which has replaced the GVR4 as my daily driver. The wife wants her garage space back, so "Frank" has got to go.

#1788/2000 (Nile Black, no sunroof) was purchased from Paul (4orced4door) down in FL in the fall of 2004. I flew down between that year's September hurricanes and drove it back to the Boston area. The car has spent 4.5 years in my care, and almost every system has been attended to. Every factory part that has been replaced has been OEM (from JNZ Tuning). All performance parts have come from reputable manufacturers (WhiteLine, HotBits, Brembo, Porterfield, Mitsu, etc). I used the car for HPDE events for 2 years, so I built it to be able to run hard for 25-30 minutes at a time and HANDLE VERY WELL. I focussed heavily on the suspension and reliable power. I never drag raced the car or had it on a dyno, so I can't provide any 1/4 mile or horsepower figures. I can tell you that the car never saw a hard launch during my ownership.

Track Vid1
Track Vid2
Track Vid3

The interior and exterior are an 8 (by current GVR4 standards). Any rust that can be found is surface rust, and there is very little of it if you can find any. It's got some small scratches here and there, but the original paint is in very good condition. The lower cladding is grey, so the car can be described as Two-Tone. Current mileage is 142,xxx. I changed the oil with synthetic Mobil1 at least every 2500 miles, along with the oil filter. I'd also suck out the power steering reservoir each oil change and refill it with Mobil1 synthetic fluid. I can't bring myself to add up all my sales
receipts from my time with the car, but they easily total over $20K. I'd like the car to go to a good home, as I've got plenty of blood, sweat and tears into this thing over the years.







Anything listed as "new" means it's been replaced in the last 18 months. Some photos don't exactly represent the car, as I've pulled several parts from it for sale individually. If the part isn't listed in this ad, then it's not for sale with the car. Modifications include:

*Boxes full of interior trim and other stock stuff that I have removed from the car

Things that are wrong with the car:

*The two upper, outer exhaust manifold studs are missing (one has a snapped easy out in it; the other has a reamed hole). I'm including a spare head with the car.
*I've been chasing a driveline (decel) noise/vibration and have not solved where it is coming from. The car drives fine, as I've been daily driving it for 2 years with this noise.
*Driver's seat side bolster has a slight tear where they all do, but it's not near as bad as most of these cars

Asking price is $6200. I'm not interested in trades or swaps of any kind...CASH ONLY. I don't have the time or patience for tire kickers, so please don't contact me if you fall into this category. I can be reached via PM here or by email at cypeake at hotmail.com

Someone will be getting a good solid car that hasn't been hacked up too badly, is pretty quick and has the capability to surprise many on a racetrack. It will cost 3x my asking price to outfit this car as it is set up right now.

No stock spoiler right now, but it's easy enough to replace. I've still got it and it's going to the buyer. I prefer the low profile spoiler, which is why I changed it from stock; understated and on par with the image I like to convey through my vehicles.

You should sell the car with those wheels for your asking price. I think you could sell it much easier, especially in the current market condition.

Also if you are not selling it with those wheels, I think some pictures of the car with the wheels you are selling it with would be appropriate.

Thanks
Clint

I'm gonna try eBay next week. If it doesn't sell I'm going to start pulling parts off it for individual sale and the vehicle price will drop.

I'm planning to pull some parts to sell separately, then will lower the price. But I'm not going to have time to mess with it for a few weeks. Got other things going on right now, so the GVR4 sits in the garage undriven. I'm probably going to drop the insurance and registration on it next month...

I'm not parting the car out.

I'm going to pull some things for individual sale and then will list a new price in a few months. I don't have time to be messing with the GVR4 this spring, so in the garage it sits.

Daily driving it again. It feels like a rocketship compared to my racecar and the truck. I forgot how much I liked power/boost

So much time, effort and money invested into a Galant. The attention to detail shows on this one. Proof that, just because you like to go fast and actually race your GVR4 doesn't mean you have to rag it the fuck out and ignore anything not under the hood.

If I might offer some food for thought, you can lurk about and buy one of the sub-$3000 cars listed 'round here, but I think it's fairly easy to expect to spend $6000 on a GVR4 in the first year you own it. So you can buy a $3000 car and then spend another $3000 in your first year doing maintenance, scooping up random, missing parts, and fixing shit that breaks out of the blue, or you can drop the six large up front and get a smoking deal on a friggin' clean Galant like this one. Just a thought...
