Seller Description

I purchased the car December 16’. The last owner had the vehicle approx. 5 years. It hadn’t gotten much use during last few years. During his ownership he had the valves adjusted, although I have no paperwork on this. The owner before him was the Dean at Carnegie Mellon University. Since purchasing the vehicle it’s gone through a pretty thorough mechanical resurrection of sorts.  I have a parts list totaling over  $7000

This is a driver’s car. Not a garage queen. The engine and drivetrain are sound and run through the rev range with no issues and run strong. The car hasn’t had any vanos or rear sub frame issues.
I have all the original parts to go with the car including the stock coupe wheels

Exterior – 6/10 I believe paint correction and detail could do wonders here
Front and rear bumpers could use a re-spray or be replaced. I held off from doing this –in my opinion a car with new bumpers always sends up a red flag of being in an accident

Interior-  8/10 few small issues that I have listed.
Drivers seat has some small bolster wear. Car still has the factory radio, tool kit and drivers manual

New items include:
Coil packs
Performance front and rear brake service kit, new rotors
Hawk pads
Custom stainless brake lines
Super blue fluid
Rear end links
Sound absorber
Gas tank strap
Drivers window reg
Tie rods L&R
Rear roundel emblem
Side marker front pass
New M floor matts
Rear sway bar bracket x2
Front control arms
Abs sensor
Yaw sensors
Abs Speed sensor
Dsc sensor
Fresh alignment
Drivers seat motor

Mods:
Suede headliner, shift boot, door cards, A&B pillars
Joey z leather arm rest
Magna flow performance Axle back exhaust
New mich pilot sprot 235/40/18     275/35/18 on bbs wheels
Cup coilover install kit
St X performance coilover kit- fixed damping height adjustable
Wheel stud kit
Spacers front and rear

Items that need to be addressed:

  • Glovebox has the typical sag
  • Front and rear bumpers could use a re-spray
  • Interior door panels aren’t 100% flush where they meet the dash – not immediately noticeable
  • Curb rash on rear pass wheel
  • Exterior door handle trim piece is missing. I have a new oem trim piece to go along with the car
  • Rear window hatch looks like it has slight delamination from the seal. Still watertight, just athestic

It's had a lot of work done the past few months. It still has a little ways to go though. Would make a good project/driver. It's one of the cheaper S54s available.
