Seeing if anyone is interested in purchasing the whole car as-is. Owned the car since 2005, engine swap was done in 2010ish, registered and inspected until 2019, has since sat other than the monthly drive around the driveway. I have been debating getting a replacement shell and/or keeping as a dedicated hill climb car but I’m starting to lose interest. Car is in good mechanical condition except for the following:

The Bad - Rocker panels and portions of the underbody have been consumed by rust. I cut them off with the intension of welding in new metal (again) but realized it had gotten to the point where it wasn’t worth it. Additionally the car needs new front wheel bearings (included in purchase) and now the alternator went (might be able to get replacement under warrantee). The bushings I have for the homebuilt control arms were made out of polyurethane and compress when tightened down…this prevents the bolts from being torqued to the proper spec. Since this could lead to a bolt failure, I recommend having aluminum bushings made or returning the arms back to stock (which I think I have). Seats (front & rear) will not be provided as I am selling them separately as the Corbeaus are basically brand new and I don’t have the originals.

The good – The car was mechanically very well cared for and I have documented all maintenace performed. Car handled and pulled great and usually took 1st place in the local anything goes FWD class. Modifications include:

id consider it if you were closer. if you decide to part it i would be interested in some parts for sure
I could be talked into relaying it from Connecticut as far as central PA if expenses were covered if you can find others to handle the other legs.

I hate to say it, but this may be a case where the partout might be your best option. I think $2500 would be an easy bar to reach piece by piece for what you have but bolted to a bad body in a relatively remote location makes it a tough sell.

i dont need another full car, especially with school starting. i appreciate it though
Nonsense! Take what you need and then get rid of the body for scrap steel.
