I am going to add more to this. I have posted like I have because I already know this car. I was trying to buy the car and thought I was going to be able to get it at a price but the guy all of the sudden thought it was worth way more. From the condition of the bottom side and the rust issues I do not believe this car is worth even close to what he is now asking. I believe the date of the engine is newer than the car so it was replaced but was replaced with another Jetfire engine. We know the turbo was replaced because it is not a red one. With the engine likely replaced, I wonder about it being an original 4 speed car. It very well may be but there is no protect o plate to prove it.

I am sorry for my “somewhat” biased posts above but I hate to see someone over pay for this car and I would still be interested in it. If the current owner wants to sell it to me for the earlier price I will still likely buy it. If he can get more then so be it.

The biggest thing is that if you do buy this car we will be more than happy to help you with any questions you have.
