“For Sale”
Car could still use attention but it does run well, I purchased it as a non runner for a conversion, using a 86 camero as a doner but decided to opt for the 94 3.4 engine instead. I bought and installed the MGV6 kit and before installing the engine painted the compartment mini cooper blue (dash as well) had a harness rebuilt to include only the options I wanted and with a fake speed sensor. FI means instant starts and all weather great runner. To cool it I installed a modified 65 mustang radiator along with a electric fan and a reverse hood scoop (engine stays at a nice temp) dash has been altered to take standard (non lucas switches and guages) although I used a volt guage instead of an amp uses a serpentine belt with a chrome 135 amp alternator, aluminum valve covers new water pump, new intake manifold gaskets as well as top end gaskets,dist wires plugs ect. new clutch, new master cyl and slave throwout bearing. speedo is close but the cheap tack stuck on the foam. Relocated pedals from the camero along with the miata seats (new speakers in headrests) I pod ready stereo) body work all done on the back half trunk straitened and new patch panels along with a slight flare. Crappy primer job though. Dana 44 installed with new pallets and tube shocks, special heavy walled drive shaft. Gears are 370 but along with the car comes a 325 gear set with carrior and a complete new set of bearings, gaskets and seals. currently pinion leaks a bit and makes a little noise. Freshly machined axels to take the original pattern. new 11X2 1/4 rear brakes,new brake hoses new frt calipers as well as drilled frt rotors and V8 pads, as well as a chevy master cyl 1 3/4 piston with adjustable proportioning valve and duel stage booster (Chrome)THIS THING STOPS! 5 matching aluminm mags with 15 inch tires (4 on the car with 4,000 miles. Hard top that fits nice but could use new frt and rear seals. perfect convertable top frame and clean tonue cover. all the lights work well, dash modified for american equipment. new exhaust. The bad, no key to door or trunk (new ignition switch two keys) oil leak from rear end and possibly the speedo adapter at trans, new gas tank but sometimes sweats from the modified pickup tube. Glass all seems good gas guage is a little goofy as the under dash regulator is crazy. My son used this car to go 71 miles each way to work for 8 months without a problem.
I would like to get 3,500.00 I have 6,100.00 invested and its fun it just is not going to work out for my new home.
