Hey guys...

One of those situations that i know i'm going to regret in about 5 years, but gotta do what you gotta do. One of those clean cars that never pop up around this area.

Bought this a few summers ago and have just been slowly working/throwing money into it as i could. Everything has been going as planned until i got a new job and had to move a few months ago. I'v kept it at my old shop, but i'm realizing things are just going to be to crazy to get anything done on it, and i cant justify having that much money tied up in it as well as continuing to pay the rent on the shop just to have it sit...

But anyways, as far as the car goes, i bought it running and driving with the m20 in it, rear main was toast and pissed oil, but other than that, the motor is strong. M20 included in sale.

I started with the motor, suspension, and brakes pulled m20, bought m50 with full harness, took motor to machine shop to be refreshed, bought everything except rings to put it back together, nothing wrong with the ones that came with but i figure its apart it should be done right, stripped bay and cleaned, all suspension and subframes removed and sand blasted and paint, wheel wells all scrubbed and sprayed with bed liner, and all suspension components replaced.

Other than that, everything that could be removed and cleaned has been, and my next step on the car was to Pour15 the bottom of the shell. Thats really where i left off, but all the other important details are listed below.

Ugh, makes me sick to even try to price this. But i know after the fact of purchase, iv spent a little less then 4k on the motor, motor work, motor parts, coils, wheels, brakes... and everything else...

So i guess ill say $4500 for every single bit i have.

Car is located in Orchard Park NY (Outside Buffalo)

Thanks Matthew
