I am getting a 94 XR2 & 93 NA in the deal. The guy was in the process of parting the 94 to do the turbo swap on his 93 NA.

I think I will get it running...then strip it all the way down for the Shave / Tuck & Paint. My goal is to be at the 2014 Meet.....


Going to be splitting time & money with my 94 Hardbody as well. I plan on boosting it this year. Once the summer hits...I will have the time & cash hopefully to move both along nicely

Final days of the car...did a complete 94 swap on the doors & center console, rear lights, bumpers and side molding. Sold it shortly after the hardtop & redoing of the interior.

 

 

You can see all the old photos here....

Yea..I just talked to that kid last night...He said they were pending...I thought you were in Florida? That guy should be shot for taking such great care of the 94 huh. Nice score Jamie but a butt load of work.

Got the cars home... Took 14 hours to get them there. The 93 both wheel bearings were shot. So it took for ever to get it on the 2 wheel dolly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 93 NA (Green one) will be parted out. So anything that is NA specific is up for sale. PM me only please asking for parts!

Hopefully in about 2 weeks I can get over there and start stripping down the Xr2.

So I bought a 91 NA just for the hardtop & traded/sold it to Sherman. Now he is back on the road & I will tackle his old cars starting problem.

So this was my first official purchase for the 94..LOL Pretty clean hardtop!

Let me know if there is anything you need before it's gone!

Test fitted a different bumper today & pretty happy with the results. I will be moving forward with this idea.
