1992 LX hatch, 331/5 speed - SOLD

I hate to do this but..

If anyone local is interested...

I'm going to give as much detail as possible..

I am relocating to Southern California, and I cannot bring this car with me, I am leaving end of January, so not too much time to move the car..

The car is a 1992 LX hatchback - Original v8 car, black on black, 5 speed, a hair under 120k miles on the car, but still driving it, might surpass that
asking price is $4500

I know people love to bury the 'bad' but I'll be up front about it
*********
The car is not perfect, it's been driven basically it's entire life, not a garage or trailer queen..

I've put about 8k miles on it since I purchased it in August of 2005 (certified ford tech..)

It's got some dents and some dings, the worst is that it's got a few rust issues (Hatch and passenger side A pillar, body drain had backed up..) - I have pictures of the rust issues..

The car has some oxidation on the bumper/mirrors.. Cleans up with some armor all for a week or two, but it's still there..

Last major issue I can think of.. trans grinds third pretty bad, however... I have a world class T5 to include in the sale that I picked up off a friend who's fox had been hit by another car, ~3k miles on the trans, supposedly.. paid $550 for it, assuming I would just throw it in if the T5 the car currently ended up bothering me enough or actually breaking.. hasn't reached that point yet

****************
BUT - the car is straight, and mostly very clean... It looks really good from a few feet away, as is typical of a 16 year old car

Just replaced/fixed the brakes on all 4 corners.. Tires were replaced in March.. nothing special, Falken Ziex 512s, stock size..

The mod list..:
DSS 331 Pro Bullet stroker shortblock- pro lite pistons,
Level 10 CNC block
Aluminum Main Support System w/ARP studs and main bolts
Nodular iron large fillet stroker crankshaft
Forged I Beam connecting rods
Race Balanced (to .028 oz imbalance) and CNC blueprinted/assembled
DSS 7qt oil pan w/tap (ready for supercharger oil return)
High volume oil pump

When I ordered it, i requested ~stock compression (so it is basically begging for boost, which had been my plan but as projects go.. it was put on hold..)

Anderson N41 cam, 1.7 crane RRs w/trickflow springs, new FRPP lifters

'93 cobra heads (GT40)- fully ported intake/port matched (to header) and polished exhaust
O-Ringed head (not block) - using the head gasket made for this setup on summit (so it fits in the o-ringed head and works with the basic block) supposed to help when boosted...

GT40 tubular upper/lower intake, port matched to head intake
trickflow TB (I believe trickflow, previous owner installed this)
BBK chrome fenderwell CAI w/ 80mm Mass air for 24# injectors
FRPP 24# injectors with walbro 255LPH fuel pump behind it

BBK shorty headers (came with the car, never changed them as the heads were port matched to them) with the C Clip exhaust bolts, so they don't back out - MAC prochamber to MAC stainless catback w/flowmaster 40s

Romac aluminum .028 oz balancer, fidanza aluminum flywheel w/centerforce clutch Factory T5 (but I have a barely used world class T5 waiting to go in if this one gets worse - I can sell with the car if needed to make a deal)
FRPP aluminum driveshaft and 3.73 gears/ rebuilt it when I installed the engine

Maximum Motorsports rear lower control arms
Energy Suspension poly engine/trans mounts
pro-5.0 shifter

Radical Racing dyno tuned this using a diablosport chip (but custom tune) the car put down only 310HP@5800 and 348 ft-lbs @ ~3700 at the wheels - (I'm not going to argue these #s as that's what the dyno showed, however the operator claimed it is a loaded dynojet, better for tuning, worse for showing power)... the car is waiting for boost, and its got the bottom end to handle it- even so its a lot of fun as it is..

Mechanical oil pressure and water temp gauges inside the car, but the water-temp gauge needs a new mechanical line in order to work, the oil pressure gauge works fine

Either PM me here or email me at montecitan@gmail.com with any interest or further questions

I am available to show the car basically up until the end of January, don't really want to part with the car but I can't keep it..

Thanks
Ryan

Yeah i'm gonna need the luck.. I had a TON of interest in the car back when I first listed it in september.. but with all the crap going on with my last semester, senior project and all.. wasn't able to show the car to anyone - Guess christmas time and bills rolled around, no one is interested now that I've relisted it for sale

doesn't help that it's winter.. worst case scenarios: it goes with me to CA, and I work on getting it carb legal

or - I leave it here in SJ under a car cover until I can plan for a 'vacation break' and list the car up for sale before I get back to NJ.. and show it/try to sell it while I'm visiting home

I'd really like to park the buick in a garage every night - I could have that car looking mint in no time - the mustang would take the garage if it went with me..I wish someone would come see the car lol.. see/drive it.. for a fox, it's in a hell of a good shape - and the asking price IMO is more than worth it... guess that's just me though

sucks you have to sell but you can find another one pretty easy, there are still a ton of Fox'es out there to be had when you get ready to pick up another one.

Re: 1992 LX hatch, 331/5 speed

man, if i didnt already have my fox, id be all over this! You and I are on a regal board together as well - I just purchased a 99GS about a month ago. Good luck with the sale, and if I were closer, id offer to show the car for ya. I seem to do better selling everyone else's stuff than selling my own, lol

After Jan 1, I got hits like crazy, ended up getting asking price + I keep spare trans
