95 5-speed SC
For those that don't make it over to SCCoA...
Testing the waters here. I don't have to sell this, but I can. I barely get to drive the car, and I've got a long list of parts I want for my truck, so, here goes.
1995 5 Speed SC
Electric Red Exterior
Grey Leather/Cloth Interior (minimal wear on driver's bolsters)
156,xxx miles (odometer has stopped)
For those that don't know me or the car. I bought this car about 3 years ago from a local kid with blown HG's, and everything else just badly worn out, literally everything. I've spent the past few years getting it to the condition it's in now, and this thing is a blast to drive...more fun than my previous 12 second 4.6 car. With the low end torque, the manual, and the super stiff suspension, it handles like it's on rails. Not sure what sort of power it makes, but if someone so desires, I have friends with a local dyno shop (I just haven't made it there yet). I've basically had the car entirely apart, and scrubbed clean, inside, out, and under the hood.

Now, for the bad, or stuff that still needs done:
-Body needs some polishing/fixing. Front bumper is faded and has some gouges, rear bumper has fading, usual door dings, decent dent in front of taillight on driver's side. Rockers are solid on it though.
-Small patch of rust underneath, by the driver side muffler, bottom area of the trunk, hard to explain.
-Ignition and door keys don't match.
-Transmission has slight leak from the input shaft (few drips after sitting for a day).
-Transmission shifts smooth during normal driving, 2nd grinds slightly during hard/spirited shifts.
-Small crack on dash near passenger door.
-Exhaust has a few sections of flex pipe and connectors, does have a few leaks, but still sounds good.
-Had a crack in the firewall around heater core opening. Crack was drilled at the end, welded shut, and then JB Weld'd over the whole thing.
-Odometer doesn't work. I do have the replacement gears, just need to install them.
-No trunk key.
I'm sure I'm forgetting something...I'll update with anything I remember. Overall the car is pleasant to drive. I rebuilt it with the intention of it being reliable, and it is just that. You can beat on the car, and it takes it in stride...no issues. I would honestly feel comfortable taking this car on a long trip.
Asking price is $5,000.
