PRICE DROP!!! 73 turbo super. daily driveable. $2500 or best

Post by barefootskater1200 » Sat Jul 11, 2015 6:46 pm

pics and build details can be had on my build thread in the force induction forum. "first bottom end/turbo build"

quick details.
fresh 1641 mild engine. cw crank, scat rods. cb 2241 cam. polished stock heads, high rev springs. lightened flywheel. full flow oil pump.
cheap header with home made turbo pipes.
has innovate motorsports wideband sensor and gauge. autometer oil pressure gauge, cheap boost gauge and tach.
front disk brakes.
front mounted optima battery.
new rear shocks

its a ratty road legal race car with a mostly stripped interior. but it is a hoot to drive and fast enough to pass anything you want or need.

front end needs some work (worn steering components/ super beetle shimmies) and the brake master leaks a bit but it passed safety inspection here in utah and i think its pretty safe to hit the road. tires are fair/poor. decent tread but old and starting to show some cracks but they never lose air. the hood is on pins and there are no hinges.

would make a great project racer or a fun restorable road car.
i can change it to natural aspiration and drop some price if that is desired.

its not pretty but the pan is very straight and has no rust to speak of. car is located in southern utah. any questions, please pm me.

Don't be afraid to low ball it. You never know...

Do you have some pics of the car? Can you tell me approximately where in southern UT you are located? (Close to Vegas?) Do you think it would be up to a cross country trip? (GA)

It's in st George. Just north of the virgin river gorge. 2 hours from Vegas.

Cross country trip= no.
The Chinese turbo gave out. Failed bearings. It would either need replaced or retuned as NA. The motor is fine and still runs good-ish. But since the turbo drains into the valve cover, it can't be driven (or really even started) because if bits of the turbo bearings get down into the motor it could be a bad situation.

On the plus side, I'm only asking $2000 now. And I'd be fully willing to convert it to natural aspiration.

What about replacing the turbo? How much would it cost to have you do that and would it be worthy to go cross country then?

Turbo crapped out. Ebay chinese unit.
Then somebody tried to steal it. hotwired and jammed something in the key hole trying to disable the steering lock.
Im not in a position to make the repairs right now. So a further price drop is in order.

$1500 O.B.O.
