SOLD

Regretfully I am selling my RS. It has been a great and fun car for me for the last 5+ years, but life is getting in the way and forcing a sale (new house, starting a family, etc.).

I used the car as a daily driver for several years and also for autocross and hillclimb. It is caged and logbooked and is very competitive in SCCA SM class. Lots of upgrades and I have meticulously maintained the car. I am the second owner of this car and have service records and part receipts going back to its purchase at the dealer. I know this car isn’t for everyone as the cage does limit its use somewhat, but it really is a great car that you can drive all week and race on the weekends. I hate to see it go, but hopefully it can find a good home.

Interior
Rear seats and trim panels gutted per SM rules. Still has radio, and A/C if you are looking for a little more weight savings.
Prosport Boost, Oil Pressure and EGT gauges in dash pod
Sparco Sprint V Driver Seat (will include stock seat as well)
FIA certified harness good until 2016 on Driver’s side, older harness on Passenger side, good for street and autocross
Almost new OEM 2.5RS Embroidered Floor Mats

The Bad
It is a 15 year old car so there are numerous stone chips on the front end.
The hood scoop and vents are peeling. I do have a spare set to go with the car, but they are peeling as well.
Normal rust on quarters and a-pillar. Passenger side was repaired, but is starting to bubble again. Passenger quarter is slightly off in color from the rest of the car from when it was repaired after the car was hit in 2009. I was considering bigger wheels/tires and flares for next year, and was going to cut out the rust. Would be the “cheap”, easy way to fix it and give you the option for bigger rubber.

Pricing
$7,500

I will include all the spare wheels and spare/stock parts for full asking price. Please no tire kickers and serious buyers only. Delivery is available within reason. Buyer to pay expenses.

I can be contacted via PM, email, or phone (email me for my number). rdh2 at alum dot lehigh dot edu





























I have the spare, jack, and trunk carpet in my basement. Also have a sound deadening pad to put in the back seat area when street driving.










Apparently the odometer screen didn’t like the recent cold weather.


Left quarter rust


Right quarter, harder to see small rust spots


Passenger A pillar


Hood Scoop


Stone Chips


Here are some “action” shots so you can imagine the possibilities. (Novice stripes are removed and numbers are magnetic)









Picture from previous owner. Lots of range in racing you can do.

Added new pictures. Weather didn't cooperate to be able to wash it but at least took it outside to take some pictures.

LOL. I love how many of the old SCCA Logbooked cars still had the interior :) My Rally RX7 was the same way. It was a rally car with the full interior :)

Clean car. It only needs about 10 bars and a few gussets to make the cage legal for NASA Rally. And I think you need nothing extra for hill climbs.
So its a good deal overall.

What are the knobs by the shifter? (Behind it).

Bump.

Thanks. It is legal for SCCA time trial level 4 (AKA Hillclimbs). The interior has to be there for Street Mod classification.

The knob is for the Hella lights as shown in the last picture (I don't have them anymore, but the wiring is still there that you could add them. I think I still have the mount for them as well.) The two other switches are power and record for the data logger that I used to have in the car, but could be repurposed for other needs.

Great car! If this is still availble in early March when i get my bonus I will purchase at the $8000 price point with the transmission swap.

This car is done exactly how I need for what I want to do. Just need the tranny and AC working. Will be in contact hopefully if still avaiable in 4 weeks.

You wouldn't believe it but I just got rid of one of those 2 years ago. It was nowhere near as nice as yours though. Unfortunately I am reducing the fleet or I would have jumped at that.

UPDATE: Sale Pending

Yeah I remember your sale thread a while ago on 914 world. Just figured I'd throw it out there.

Good luck with the car, sounds like a lot of fun.
