This was supposed to be my winter project but never had the time so I am offering it up for a quick sale. Well over $20,000 invested. Custom supple real leather interior, Fiberglass flares. Chrome rear bumper is very nice. Front needs to be rechromed. Rubber tops are just so so. Any rust was repaired. Not pretty but sound. No sag. Decent older driver quality paint. Was pastel blue now a very bright green. Have 1/2 gallon left over for touch ups. Engine is from a 2005/2006 wrx turbo. I think it had 50,000 or so on it. Kenedy adapter and clutch. Was told stock tranny was rebuilt. Hot rod heater plumbed in. Drive by wire accelerator pedal. Brake and clutch pedal need new bushings. Chevy bolt pattern adapters with crappy Camero wheels and bald tires. Car is complete front to back, 100% but I can't get it started. Wiring needs to be gone through and sorted. Car needs a good detailing. It has sat for almost two years now. If you are a wiring wizard and know or have a friend that knows Subarus, this is the deal of the century and a no-brainer. If you have to pay $150.00 an hour to a mechanic to trouble shoot, plan on spending a couple thousand more. Please only serious inquires. Really can't tell you anymore than what is here. Its a hot rod 914. Once up and running will keep up with any exotic on the road. Prefer to sell locally face to face, but will entertain a long distance offer. Car is in Albany, NY. Priced at half of what's in it. Will need to be flatbeded of course, Can deliver locally. thanks mike 518-428-4678

Forgot to state, seats are heated. New brake pads, rotors and calipers.

Mike,

What does it have for a trans and shifting? Did you buy it just like this?

More info for everyone would help. More pictures of the car would help.

Stock 914 tranny with short shifter. Previous owner did the swap and body/paint work. If anyone wants more pics send me your email and I can send a bunch. Car did run and drive. Took it to a so called Subby expert and he butchered the wiring, it now looks like a birds nest and car won't even fire. He got in way over his head! At this point its probably easier just to put a new harness in and start fresh. Time to take my losses and move on. Great deal for someone with the know how. Cheers, Mike

What if any rust issues does it have? How is the hell hole?

Any interest in partial trading for a v8 miata (yours plus cash)?

Ford 302/t5/7.5 irs swap running, driving and inspected. It was an STS car prior to the conversion so there's about $3500 in street/track suspension work and weight reduction done as well.

Bit of a long shot but if you were interested in a swapped two seat convertible before, maybe you still are?

Sounds like an awesome car, but need the garage space more than I need another toy. Price drop to $8,000..!

Your final asking price was good, and I know you had it up on CL locally (and here) for a while. The flipper won’t have any better luck selling in CT. And if he does... woo hoo for him.

Nothing wrong with trying to make some money, but lazy @ss for not at least taking his own pictures.

New owner could take $5K less than his CL asking price and still make a good profit, only issue is whomever buys it from the flipper will get 0 support and won't be able to ask any questions about it.
