Seller Description

The S54 Project Coupe is now available. I purchased this coupe in Pullman, WA over a year ago. Surpringly it is 1 of just 2 S54s in titanium silver over dark gray without a sunroof. The sunroof-delete looks great against silver and the black/gray interior is a little subdued but still has the unique two-tone character.

It is mostly stock with only the subtlest of upgrades including Whalen seat bushings, Thayer seat-tilt kit, K&N air filter and Rogue Engineering rear shock mounts. The diff mount looks like new, and it's very apparent it's never been abused.

The interior is in great shape with only a couple of flaws worth noting. There are a few small bubbles in the center console plastic where a bad auto-dimming mirror must have leaked. They are located just in front of the shift knob. There is also some damage to the black trim along the bottom of the gauge cluster where a previous owner must have pried from. It is mostly hidden from view by the steering wheel though. The driver seat bolster is in very nice shape, the center console is uncracked and the headliner is high and tight.

The exterior has a couple small rock chips on the front bumper and hood, small scrapes under the front bumper, a few small chips on the wheels, and a couple light scratches on the roof over the driver door. Nothing out of the ordinary for 44k miles. I used a paint meter and determined each panel has only been painted once. I did discover that the hood, the little driver front fender, and the driver door are missing their VIN tags though. The Carfax is clean and the previous owner was not aware of the apparent panel replacements.

The only other remaining issue is that the passenger door lock spins. I had the car for over a year and never once had need to manually unlock the passenger door, so I let that one issue slide.

It drives beautifully and is probably the most tight, rattle free coupe I've had. The road trip through the back roads of Idaho from Pullman in route to Fort Collins, CO was epic. It feels very much like my personal coupe did when it was stock. Now all it needs is a deserving new owner. Contact me at with any questions or photo requests.

I'm reducing the price to $42,368 from $44,368 which I think makes someone a pretty good deal.

This is the first Project Coupe that's been on the open market in a couple years. It's my coupe, so I obviously think it's great and priced fairly. I think it could be priced higher with its configuration and mileage, but I discounted due to the replaced body panels. It would make an amazing, low mileage driver at a mid-mileage price.
