    1995 5-speed SC - $3000

    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:

    Engine
    Low Mileage Shortblock
    Heads resurfaced, cleaned, and tested
    Felpro Head Gaskets
    ARP Head Studs (correct length Chevy kit, with wider ARP washers)
    NPR Front Mount Intercooler
    Custom Front Exit SC Top
    Custom Intercooler Piping
    Griffin High Capacity Radiator
    Fender Mount CAI with K&N Cone Filter
    Magnum Powers Tensioner Springs
    Magnum Powers Blower Inlet
    Ported 94/5 Blower, painted black
    10% Aluminum OD Pulley
    Aluminum Underdrive Crank Pulley (0 balance)
    BHJ Harmonic Balancer
    A/C Delete (NA 3.8 Tensioner and shorter belt, have original components except condensor)
    Timing Chain/Gears
    Autolite Plugs
    Plug Wires
    Power Steering Pump
    Water Pump
    PCV Valve
    Motor Mounts
    Valve Cover Gaskets
    Intake Manifold Gaskets
    Timing Cover Gaskets
    Exhaust Manifold Gaskets
    SCP Catless Downpipes
    2-1-2 Exhaust with Flowmaster Resonator and Mufflers
    180* Thermostat
    O2 Sensors
    190lph Walbro Fuel Pump
    Fuel Filter
    All rubber hoses and vacuum lines replaced
    Moates Quarterhorse, tuned by Dave Dalke (conservative, safe tune)

    Drivetrain
    Transmission Mount
    Correct Speedo Gear
    LUK Clutch
    Clutch Slave Cylinder (new style line fitting)
    Rebuilt Stock Rear End with 3.31 Gears (from 94 auto SC)

    Suspension/Steering
    H&R Lowering Springs
    Koni Adjustable Struts/Shocks (manual adjustment)
    Strut Rod Bushings
    Front Upper Control Arms
    Front Lower Control Aarms
    Front Hubs
    Front Sway Bar Endlinks
    Front Sway Bar Bushings
    Steering Rack and Bushings
    Power Steering Lines
    Tie Rod Ends
    Front Brakes and Rotors (OEM)
    Rear Brakes and Rotors (OEM)
    Rear Sway Bar Endlinks
    Rear Strut Tower Brace (to be installed)

    Exterior
    Cobra Cowl Hood w/ Scoops
    Stain Black Hoodpins (to be installed)
    96/7 Headlights (OEM, polished, still kinda hazy)
    96/7 Clear Corners
    Black Bumper Letters (not installed yet)
    96/7 Sport Wheels with Tbird Logo Center Caps, Plastidipped Black
    Uniroyal Tires, plenty of life left, slightly smaller size than stock

    Interior
    Autometer Gauges (Volts, Coolant Temp, Oil Pressure, Fuel Pressure, Boost)
    Innovate Wideband
    Ignition Switch
    Heater Core
    Clutch Pedal Bushing
    Black Suede Shift Boot with Red Stitching
    2 Gloss Black Shift Knob
    New Pioneer Bluetooth Headunit
    Pioneer Speakers
    Kenwood 600w Amp
    12" Alpine Type-R 12" Sub

    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

    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.

    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.

    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...
