I'm selling my all original GVR4. It has 154k miles on the original engine / turbo / transmission paint, etc.

It's stock right down to the airbox and always has been. I purchased it from the original owner last fall. This car is one of few left in original condition. VIN number stickers on each body panel. Other than a few minor cosmetic issues and quirks that I call out below, the car is very decent inside and out.

It's got a lot of good things going for it - all electricals work - windows, locks, cruise, air conditioning, sunroof, rear defrost, etc. Seats are in relatively good condition for original components - I replaced the rears with factory due to sun damage. Engine runs very smoothly with good power and all gear shifts are smooth without grinding issues.

Annoyances -

Last week the driver door power lock started actuating whenever the door would get half way open. Must be a loose wire... i haven't pulled it off to check
Driveline whine - not sure if they all do this or not, but I've taken many 200+ mile highway trips with the car and it hasn't changed or seemed to matter (I replaced the fluids in the transmission and transfer case - no leaks on either)
Rough idle when starting warm - weird, but after you warm the car up fully and let it sit for 15 -20 minutes and come back out to start it, the idle is very rough and it tries to die. 20 seconds later it's fine and idles rock solid.
Horn works occassionally
Antenna is broken
Rear dogleg driver's side is missing
















Car is located in Bentonville, Arkansas. PM me or email [email protected]

No I don't have the missing dogleg. I do have a clip for it from Mitsubishi when a new owner finds one.

No factory radio. It does have the original owner's manual I believe and associated booklets.

Of course willing to help with shipping, rides from the airport, etc.

Thanks,
Kyle

Thanks for the kind words. I believe I have gotten back with everyone. I apologize if it was delayed. Feel free to use my email address I listed in the ad, as I will be able to check my mail much more often than the forum.

Thought I was going to buy this but changed my mind at the last second. Bump for a solid car and seller. This will go FAST.

G - what do you mean....

He listed these:

Last week the driver door power lock started actuating whenever the door would get half way open. Must be a loose wire... i haven't pulled it off to check
Driveline whine - not sure if they all do this or not, but I've taken many 200+ mile highway trips with the car and it hasn't changed or seemed to matter (I replaced the fluids in the transmission and transfer case - no leaks on either)

I meant the rough idle, curious to see what that ends up being. If it's something serious being down played by the seller or an easy fix.

I thought it sounded like a bad FIAV? I spoke to the seller for a while on the phone and I think this is more G being G than an issue with the car or seller. Anyway, good luck to the guy who bought it.

I'm a skeptic, their is always a reason why a car is for sale and it's in the buyers best interest to figure out if it's a serious issue or not. Especially for that asking price. If the seller is clueless and just doesn't want to deal with it or if the seller knows it's a more serious issue and is trying to dump it on someone else. This sale could go either way and am curious to find out what it ends up being. Hopefully it's something simple. Looks clean though!

I will let you know in just a short time....

I am taking the sellers word that the issues are small.

This will be the second GVR4 that I have purchased (I bought the exact same car, minus the sunroof, off the lot brand new in 92).

My son's and I now have 4 Twin Turbo 3S's (3- 3000GT VR4s and one Dodge Stealth TT), so we're familiar with these cars.

This will eventually find its way to my middle son, as a graduation gift from college

Bob.

"G"

Excuse my "newbieness" here.

I have been a member of 3si.com since 2000 and a member of 3sgto.org since 2010.

As mentioned, I did own a GVR4 (from 92 to 97, when I sold it to get a 94 3000gt VR4). It was stock from day one to sale.

I hope I can draw on your (and others) Galant experiences to help my son get the most out of THIS car...

I appreciate your concerns..

Bob.

No problem, that salt in Dayton is brutal. Hate to see a clean example like this one be exposed to it.

The car will spend the first part of it's life in Toledo (not much better than Dayton for snow/salt).

From there, it all depends on where he and his girlfriend find jobs....

All I can say is once WE get the car, we are going to begin the process to make it "better".

That should begin to happen sometime next week.

Again, I hope to be able to draw on this site for advice and knowledge....

Bob.

Thanks Kyle

Appreciate you being there to meet the transport.

I will let you know when she arrives (I'm guessing sometime tomorrow?)

Received the car today.

It came pretty much as described (things that long range pics can't show).

We are needing inner wheel liners (and I have posted in the parts wanted section....the car came with none).

The car started and idle perfectly, but about 2 minutes later the CEL did come on. This was suspected. I have a logger and cable from my Stealth TT that will allow me to pull the code, so that will be sorted out shortly.

As soon as I get the title, Kyle will get added to the GOOD GUY section....

We will be sure to post progress on bringing 1800/2000 back to life....

Bob.
