The time has come for me to get rid of the Galant I acquired a few months ago. The car is number 1267 out of 2000. I bought the car in Ohio in April. He seemed like a good guy but didn't know much about DSMs or GVR4's but he was an rx-7 guy. I was tipped off by a member here to a Craigslist Columbus add. I drove out to get it and haven't put a ton of time into it other than odds and ends/cleaning and generally seeing what I had bought. Most of the engine mods on the car are by word of mouth. I've searched google and found some old forum info. This car has went from PA to MI to OH and now back to PA from best I can tell. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION: This IS a project car. It needs a few odds and ends to be roadworthy/inspection worthy. Here is the mod list from what I can tell and what I've been told:

EVO 4 front mount
Hard piping (rusty needs re-done)
K&N filter
ACT 2600 clutch (word of mouth?)
2.3 stroker with 13k miles on rebuild (word of mouth?)
small 16g turbo
Volt/oil pressure/boost gauges cheap brand on the A pillar
2.5 inch exhaust that is in poor condition
MBC

The car itself is in decent shape. It has been in an ass ender at one point in it's life. Front end has been resprayed poorly. The leather/interior is in great shape minus a few stains on the carpet and the driver seat being torn in the flat part (seen in pics). Tires need to be replaced thanks to dry rot. Has an oil leak in the turbo drain at the pan.

Transmission is not a happy camper. It is leaking fluid and has a hellacious grind going into second gear. The car will come with two good 90 model transmissions and matching transfer cases and a used ACT 2100.

I've tried to be as honest as possible with this car. Pictures make the car look amazing, but the body has dings/smudge marks. I am entertaining offers but won't go far below the asking price.

The chasis has around 170k on it. There is little to no rust with the exception of the rear bumper support and under the passenger side door. The car runs/drives without any major issues.

Price Drop. If shells are selling for 1200 - 1500, then I know this is worth $1700 (back me up DR1665)

I am sticking to the asking price of $1700 and not budging. It's getting old people offering me a grand for it when I see other running cars on here selling for $4k with similiar issues this car has.

I also need to clear something up right now about this car. NO, I do NOT trust this car to make a 24 hour drive to Texas, or Iowa, or Florida. It starts, it runs, it drives just fine around town, but with the tires and the lack of driving time I have logged, I will not bet that it will make a long drive. If your coming to get it, I strongly reccommend a trailer. Please stop PMing me asking if it will or why it won't make a long drive.

I am sorry to be firm, but I have been FLOODED with PM's from tire kickers.

Hey, sorry, I called and talked with you on the phone a few weeks ago about the car. I was the one that said I had a '90 GGSX. I was pretty interested in the car, but some financial things came up and it's not in my budget to be able to purchase it at this time. Maybe in a few months if it's still available, I'll pick it up off your hands.

You may find that somehow (?) verifying the mileage and taking care of the tranny may result in a quick sale for more money. That's all I can offer except a BUMP for you. Good luck on the sale. This seems like a solid deal.

Meh 1700 for a running vr4, I think that is a hell of a deal, hes even including 2 transmissions. To build a 2.3 would cost the price of the car. Mileage is kind of a must but as long as the engine runs without smoking meh I'd be satisified.

Yeah price is worth it, a rebuild is worth 1700 easily. A 2.3l is free no real cost to go stroked same as stock build.I must tell you he is FIRM and has every right to be. Why is the car so far? Why?

that's my point exactly. $1700 for a car that runs is pretty damn good. There are shells that go for more than that.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the kind words guys. I've had a lot of tire kickers offering me $1200 and $1000 for it trying to point out the bad and to make me cave. I have a local interested and I'd like to sale this thing cash money. I've sold cars through pay pal and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

Got a truck lined up for december incase you still have it :-). When you say the intercooler piping is rusty and needs redone how rusty are you talking about? Like rusty to the point that its pentrated all the way through and would possibly cause boost leak or rusty as in they have some surface rust and they just look crappy?
