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.

Here is the list of mods, and/or OEM parts that have been replaced in the past few years, all with less than 1000 miles on them:

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.

Also have a new Comp Cam, roller rockers, valve springs, oversized stainless valves that will go with it.

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 $3,000.

New pictures will follow in a day or two.we

04-20-2017, 09:45 AM
I'm in Inwood, WV...eastern panhandle of WV.

Do you have more pictures? Engine bay? Where you repaired the firewall as well as some interior pictures? I am currently looking at a few and really do like yours.

I lost my login for my old account but if you search krazyt that was my old account so ive been around for a long long time.

Thank you!

What is the condition of the interior? Do you have pics of interior?

05-29-2017, 02:05 PM
I would say pretty good condition. Dash has a small crack near the passenger door, not very noticeable. Wear on the bolsters is minimal. There is a hole drilled in the center console where the previous owner had a switch mounted. Send me a message with your number and I can send you some pics.

Also, as of today, installing a ported blower with a Magnum Powers inlet.

Bump. Still available. Car has a ported blower and MP Inlet now.

Will entertain reasonable offers.

Bump, motivated to sell now. Recently acquired a new Comp Cam, roller rockers, valve springs, oversized valves, and a few other pieces that will go with it.

Noooo Jeff..that would make you tbird-less, wouldn't it?

Price lowered again. Would like to see this go to someone here. Any lower and I'd make more selling parts, which I really don't wanna do.

Is this an original 5 spd car?

Yes, was not converted.

If I had the time or ability to get it I would buy now. Hope it goes to a good home. My hunt for one closer to home continues...
