1985 Turbo Sedan (RX) + host of extras **SOLD**

Unfortunately after years of procrastinating I've realised I'm never going to finish my Turbo sedan and I now need the room for a growing collection of other things.
Before you read any further, this is a job lot sale, I am not interested in breaking things down or selling individual items - sorry but this car means a lot to me and it is hard enough parting with him.

It's an 1985 model that was owned by a genuine little old man before me, it has been a part of my life since 1997 and it has approx 243000km on the straight, rust free body.
The auto and air suspension have been replaced with struts and an constant AWD manual box (l series casings, RS liberty transfer case), there is also a viscus lsd rear diff with the car but not in it.
The engine dropped a big end in 2005 and was fully rebuilt with forged, slapper pistons (from the same guy who use to build Possum Bourne's EA82T engines), it's been balanced, has a custom lightened flywheel (less than half) which has been made to take RX7 pressure plate), a reconditioned Garrett GT28, with custom headers, a full handmade 3" stainless exhaust, and a host of other upgraded parts - bigger injectors, dual core radiator, air to water intercooler, etc, etc.
This was all put together in 2005 but it has never run since, in part to the fact under advice I installed a Haltech ECU and I've not been able to get it sorted.

The car also has rare as rocking horse $#!%, american made 15" Rallysport Mini-lite wheels.
Lastly there is half a garage of extras including a Japanese import, spider manifold, engine, which I was told had only 80k on it.

A lot of money has been sunk into this car and I realise if I was to part it out myself it would be worth a lot more but I'm not interested in that.
I'm open to an offer but you will need to come pick everything up, so a trailer is needed, everything is located in North Sydney.

Please either email me

or 0429 668 733 (steven)

Sorry I was half asleep and only looked at the title in the list of posts, not inside the post itself.

Good buying, hope to see some photos when it's restored
