      CAR IS SOLD.... DRIVING TO MEET NEW OWNER TOMMORROW....


      Price, $5,750 firm without the schmidts. Not interested in trades unless its a clean round eye rabbit plus cash.... The car will come with the original speedlines with brand new tires, unless you want to buy the schmidts as well...

      So I purchased this car just a few months ago.... I really had high hopes of bringing this solid example back to all its glory plus a little extra, but I've come across a great business opportunity, along with a current intense build, so think its best if i sell this and start over when the time is more appropriate.

      Its basicly a 1 owner car. The original owner was anal retentive beyond belief. For example, he kept record of every time he put gas in the car, to a tenth of a gallon... He kept all kinds of brochures from the CCA to random articles he photocopied from back in the day... He sold the car the summer of 2010 and the purchaser only kept it for about 3 months (he lost his job and couldn't afford a "toy") and i bought it. While in his position, he replaced the sunroof assymbly, bought new tires for the speedlines, replace o-rings/seals on the oil cooler, and a few other random things.....

      Since I've bought it I bought and installed h&r coilovers with new strut bushings and bearings, had the passenger window asymbly replaced with an upgrade one, installed the ".5" BFI motor/tran mounts, bought new interstate battery, deleted the exhaust suitcase, replaced the outer passenger c.v. boot and sway bar links, rolled rear fenders only using an eastwood roller, and finally, took it in for an alignment @ Grand Tourismo East.

      As for records, the car comes with a folder FULL of receipts. I am convienced everything excluding the shell on this car has been replaced.... I can go into detail for anyone who is seriously interested in the car

      The car has a little over 160,000 on the shell and need to check records to see how much on rebuilt motor (don't have acces to records right now cause snowed in away from them... )

      The good:
      Could drive it from coast to coast with no worries....
      All Original except for the clarion radio
      Motor runs solid and hard
      Body and interior are solid given it's age.

      The bad:
      Original windshield pitted
      small spot in passenger side headlight (aesthetic concern only)
      the number 1 and 2 positions on the fan speed controller don't work
      has its share of dings, paint fading, front rock chips, etc... basicly what you'd expect for original almost 20 year old body... but will say, its clean for what it is....














      stack of reciepts



      Random memorabilia from dealership, magazines, and Corrado Car Club of America...







      As for the price, I want what I have in the car. I paid $3,800 plus $ for maintance and upgrades so the total I have in it is $5,783.69, but am happy to round it down to $5,750 Again, that is without the schimdts, but with original speedlines with brand new tires... Schmidts are also available if you want them for an addition cost...


      take care,
      nash
