This thread has been approved by Hertz as I am not the owner of the car. I will be handling the entire sale process minus signing the actual title. This thread is also about the car not the former owner so leave those questions at the door. I can be reached via PMs here or email [email protected]

Up for sale is the infamous #3. This car is beautiful in every way and performs very well. The car was originally built by Harry Blanchard a little over 10 years ago with some upgrades in the last few years. The exterior and interior are in fantastic shape. The car has been a toy/weekend car for most of it's life and as such has always been garaged. The current mileage is just a hair over 83,000. The car was recently tuned by Tony at UMS and made 451 AWHP on E85. The dyno video link is right above the first picture. Asking price is 18,000 OBO. Motivated seller so all serious offers will be entertained.

Exterior:
The exterior of this car is one of it's big selling points. I have seen many nice GVR4s with stock paint and even some nice cars with aftermarket paint. None of them look as nice as this car does. It's a GM black and looks miles deep. There is no orange peel, swirl marks, or haziness. The only down side to the exterior are 3 small issues. An outward ding in the hood, a small nick on the driver side c pillar, and a small ding in the trunk. To duplicate a paint job like this would easily cost 8-10K alone and would require pulling the car apart until it was just a shell. This car was recently detailed and the shop said they had more people ask about #3 than any of the exotic cars they had in house. The pictures speak volumes about the paint. The wheels are real deal Volk CE28N in perfect condition. There are no scratches, dings, or rash anywhere on these wheels. They are wrapped in almost brand new (maybe 1500 miles) Bridgestone Potenza SO3 Pole Position. Sizes are 225/40/17 all around.


Interior:
This car has always been a weekend car/toy and has always been garage kept. As you can imagine the interior is in excellent shape. The leather is in great condition with no rips, tears, fading, etc.. The driver side seat was modified to work with the 5 point harness that are currently in the car. All gauges work and illuminate the same color as the dash with the exception of the wide band. The stereo is an older head unit but works well. The car has aftermarket speakers, hooked up to an old school Sound Stream amp. It can be played quite loud with out distortion but doesn't get used much. The headliner is in fantastic shape, the sunroof works perfectly, the carpet is in great shape with no stains or wear marks. Car comes with custom Galant VR4 floor mats. The trunk has been redone with a carbon wrap on all trunk liners. The trunk floor was redone in the same material and has covers for the battery box, fuel cell fill, and a small storage bin. There is also a huge rear strut tower bar.

The only things that are annoying about the car (not issues) are:
The wiring for the stereo and gauges could use some cleaning up. It all works as it should but could have been done nicer. The fuel gauge does not work. When Harry built the tank he built it with no provisions for a sending unit. I usually just fill it up before I take it out or if its going to be a long drive I keep an eye on the mileage. The gauges are down under the radio. It comes with a Paulo A pillar gauge pod and the gauges could be moved more in the line of sight. With the fuel cell being in the trunk filling it up has to be done carefully as not to spill on the trunk.


This is a turn key car. Now what does that mean? That means it will fire right up and drive around (very fast if you want) without leaking, overheating, or any major problems. What that DOESN'T mean is that this car was built specifically for you. I am sure everyone here would change certain things about this car including myself, however, none of that has to do with the car starting right up and driving down the road. This car does not leak a drop of anything. No oil, trans fluid, fuel, nothing. It hasn't show any driveability issues since I've had it tuned. It gets looks and attention everywhere I take it. It could be a gas station, car show, Euro meet, it doesn't matter people love this car and how nice it is.

#3 will also come with boxes and boxes of extra stuff. Trophies from the mid and late 90's when Harry owned it, custom shirts, old school Shoot Out video, and a lot of extra parts. Basically when this car goes every single last DSM/GVR4 part will go with it. I have enjoyed these cars for along time but I am moving onto BMWs so all my spare stuff must go.

If anyone has questions about the car feel free to ask. If you want pictures of anything I will do what I can to facilitate that.

Yes, however the belt is currently off. When the Fluidampr went on the AC belt was left off. With the WG set up on this car installing belts and tightening the alt and power steering is a big pain in the ass. Because of that I haven't put a belt on to test it. If that's a deal killer I can install the belt and test it.

The seller and I have not worked out any money my way. Once the car is sold we'll figure something out. I just want the car to end up with someone who will appreciate the car, but more importantly, someone who will drive it. It's spent way to much time in garages doing nothing.

^^haha, seems like that is the fate of most of the clean VR4's...sitting too much

Only 83k miles? Wow, didn't realize this one was so low mileage! That should help with the price.

It's pretty wild to see this car available. It's even crazier that I technically *could* buy it, but I'm not ready to trade off the 128i I just bought. Now if it was 1051... maybe.

Here's a photo I saved forever ago which shows just how thorough the paint job was! Dramatic background or not, whoever buys this car is getting something special.

No he didn't. Car is still for sale. I know the owner hates the carry cost of having this car and I would really like to get my garage space back, so price is negotiable.

I am willing to negotiate but I feel 12k is low for this car. If its still for sale a few months from now that might change, who knows.

Some decent pictures would help. If I were going to pay anywhere close to 18k for this car, I'd want to see pictures of every inch of it. Aside from showing the car has a nice paint job, the pictures posted don't really show the buyer anything worthwhile.

I'm sure he has those kind of pics. But posting them all in the thread would make the page a PITA to load. Interested potential buyers would probably get them once they are actually talking to the seller. Glws

Really? Who's your internet provider, Hughes Net?

I'm willing to wait the 4 extra seconds for the page to load in order to see what I'm potentially buying. I'm betting most serious buyers would agree. Good pictures sell cars, so it's just a suggestion to the seller that would help the sale along, and get the car out of his garage.

Alternatively, I'd like to see more pictures via PM/email if that's the preferred method.

Tf is Hughes.net? Lmfao you're silly.

I for one don't want to look at a fs ad with 65 pics on the page. A link to an online album is the best solution. Then Brett could be happy. 99% of us opening this thread aint potentially buying shit.

If you're trolling, this is the best you've done in a while.

Doesn't want to see 65 images of the car for the sale becuz page loads too slow, but isn't even interested in buying in the first place. I completely understand how the OP wouldn't want to inconvenience all the the people looking at the ad for sheer entertainment

I'm absolutely interested in this car. I've been considering shifting focus to a serious drag build for a while now. And, I guarantee this car is the only clean VR-4 with an NHRA cage that will be for sale anytime in the present or near future. For those reasons alone, I'd seriously consider investing in this if the price was right.

If you could, please:

-A lot more under hood shots
-Shots of the trunk/fuel cell area
-A few more interior shots
-A few pics showing how the cage is routed

Personally, I'm not terribly worried about seeing the undercarriage. I know this car doesn't have any rust.

Thanks.

Brett are you considering picking her up? This is the same car that got me into the galant vr4. I hope you do pick it up because I worry it will wind up in the wrong hands and wind up seeing it parted out in 5 - 7 years from now.
