1997 C2 Manual Coupe 118,6xx miles

This is not your garage queen, this is a car to drive and enjoy. A manual six speed beauty that has graced at least four other enthusiastsĺ garages over the past twenty years and is now offered up for sale for someone else to drive and enjoy. An arena red metallic exterior with black stone guards and a matching cashmere and arena red interior has turned heads and earned me many stoplight thumbs up during ownership. This car had undergone a top-end at 111k miles to address common oil leak issues and exterior lighting had also been upgraded to LED at some point prior to my tenure. During my ownership I have upgraded the following:

New suspension - KW V3 coilovers with rear Tarret toe links.
Adjusted to the lowered ride height seen in the pictures.
New tires to go with the suspension - Michelin Pilot Sport PS3s
Fabspeed sport cats
Fister Stage III exhaust modification
Fabspeed High Performance Airbox
RS Fan Pulley upgrade and alternator rebuild
New A/C compressor
New A/C condenser
New A/C evaporator
New clutch slave and master cylinder, kinematic clutch pedal lever, and hydraulic line.
Recent transmission fluid change.
Numerous small cosmetic refreshers (new ignition bezel, speaker cover, door alarm light dome covers, third brake light, Etters engine bay pad keeper, power window switch replacement, etc.)
Windows tinted with ceramic tint including a clear ceramic tint on the windscreen to guard that precious interior from the brutal Texas sun.

This car is truly a treat to drive and still pulls hard after all these years. The car had served as a daily driver at one point in its life and has the telltale rock chips that need addressing. There is also evidence of a respray at some point to the frunk lid and front bumper cover. As full disclosure, carfax will show an accident history and I interviewed her owner at the time to clarify the details of which he assured me there were no significant mechanical or structural implications (PM me for details). I have been over this car with several mechanics and all agree that she is mechanically and structurally sound.

Please no trade offers.

PM me for a link to more detailed/high res pics.

To address a few common PM questions:

I do not have durametric results on this vehicle. I am more than happy to help with any PPI.

I did have a recent leak down test with all cylinders >94% on leak down.

Yes I am entertaining all offers just no trades please.

I have removed the rear engine cover/diaper off this car and it has not left a drop oil on my garage floor.

I have a 1996 Arena red Carrera with 164k miles and your paint looks brand new. My paint looks like a 1996 corolla compared to this

Good work

Didn't win the Mega Millions last night so I guess I won't be building that super garage and keeping this 993.
