  1. I hate to do this, but I am putting my vert up for sale. It has been my shop project car for over 16 years now. I just decided that it was crazy to let this thing sit while I am working in Afghanistan. The car just sits and that’s doing it no good. My fiancé does not want me to sell, but she can’t drive a stick either, so we think it makes better sense to sell it off. I AM NOT DESPERATE TO SELL, so no stupid low ball offers. It can sit for years for all I care. Just would like to see someone get it and enjoy it.

    I am asking $16,500 as she sits, and $18,500 with the SHP block installed and tuned.

    Tuned by Dayton Performance Motorsports, has gasoline tune (550hp) and E85 tune(600 hp) and E70 tune for occasional winter driving on A9L computer. Car runs and drives exceptionally well. I have taken it on nice weekends for long cruises around the tri state. Not much trunk room, lol, for clothes and such, so only short trips.
    As you may have guessed, I own a speed shop and this was the car that got it all started back in 93, I bought the car in 92 when it was 4 years old off of the lady next door to me. Car was originally an auto, and I did a complete swap to manual, can’t tell unless I told you. I am sure I have left out a lot, but you get the picture. I built this car to be a fun cruiser, and well, it kind of got away from me, lol. My lady loves it and we have had some really good times driving around in it, but I feel it would be better in someone elses care.
    I also want to offer the option to the lucky buyer to have a Dart SHP block installed with all the current components including new rings, bearings and gaskets for extra money.

    I am asking 16,500 as she sits, and 18,500 with the SHP block installed and tuned. I would then be able to spin it up to 6k or so, which would make more boost and you guessed it, more power. I am also open to partial trades or more than one car traded in. I know this is a lot of money, so I want to make it easier for the motivated buyer to into the driver’s seat. The sale comes with future parts discounts and dyno time if the original stickers on the car advertising my business are left on it.
