Hey guys,

I'm putting my old project car up for sale: http://www.ozdat.com...php?f=66&t=6303 to be honest I'm unclear what I should be asking for the car, but it's a fun car, and when going, it's fast as hell. I'm looking for around $15,000 13,000 for it. It ran a best of 12.83 @ 115MPH on 9psi with a 2.2 60' time (195 street tyres and an open diff). It's currently tuned for 19psi and has a locked diff, so is obviously substantially faster than that.

Price and Payment Conditions: $15000 13,000 Cash in hand or paypal
Item Condition: Good
Body: Rust, some, more repaired in the past.

The car has been sitting in my parents garage since 2006. I'm still in California until Nov 6th when I'll actually be able to go and check it out. This ad is to try and get an interested party lined up so I can do the transaction and help arrange transportation while I am in the country.

Tie-rod ends: new OEM

Interior:
Stripped.
Custom simple alu panel with a couple of Autometer gauges.


The bad bits:

The engine definitely needs a freshen up, and a proper L28ET oil pump. First outing around calder park (see link at the end) when the oil cooler first opened it, coupled with a standard L20B oil pump (previous owner installed) lowered the oil level sufficiently that with semi-slicks I lost oil pressure around turn 1 and ate the bearings. It needs new main bearings, and likely big-end bearings and a general refresh too.

The body is not rust-free. Honestly it needs some tender love and care on the body. I don't know the exact condition until I get to the car in November.

Thanks for looking, if anyone has read this far, I also have a few other parts I'll be putting up for sale, 2 4.4:1 R200 LSDs, 1 with the axles and CVs still (sale pending), a mint 1600 primered shell (6K in body receipts from bodyz by nick in Ballarat), a 5000Km old S15 SR20DET and 6-speed, 1600 adjustable rear x-member from datsport, and a few other things that I can't remember right now :)

Thanks, I totally missed that.  I'll update it now as I'm back in Oz tomorrow.

Forgot about the rust issue on the passengers floor, which is a bummer, but overall, it's in better condition than I could have hoped for!

I'm really gunna miss this car. I get that feeling like this sale might be a mistake...

Hey armie,

It is.

I'm in no rush. Steady interest, and predictably a lot of low ballers. :-)
