Well, some of the older folks here might remember my project car from 2007-8 timeframe, sadly, personal medical circumstances have lead to my no longer being able to drive.
Asking: $7000 OBO
Location: Azusa, CA.
Contact: Please PM me here for email address, phone number, etc. if interested.

KBB lists the car, not including/accounting for the SVT brakes, SVT suspension, SVT/MACH HID headlights, or the SVT/EAP Recaro Seats at $5,700 for Very Good condition, private sale. The brakes, suspension and headlights were all brand new, FRPP kits, installed around the 40,000 mileage mark. I don't remember the exact pricing, but the brakes were around $1000, headlights $900, and suspension $400. The seats were from a totaled SVT, with their side-airbags intact (i.e. no re-packing/re-stitching, all original and in great condition.)

Engine, Performance, Etc:

I intended to replace all 4 interior door panels after the power window/door/etc., conversion was completed, and add matching perforated black leather accents. I have the leather pieces still, but unfortunately one of the door panels I ordered was damaged, and I never found a replacement before I lost my ability to drive. (here's a picture of how it was supposed to look
The SVT EAP Recaro seats were never designed to fit into a Sedan. While the front seats bolted in no problem, the rear seats do not. I had originally intended to have custom brackets welded into the chassis to secure the rear seats, but again, life got in the way. Accordingly, before sale, the rear seats will be removed, and the original rear seats re-installed. You can re-fit the EAP rear seats once you have taken ownership if you like.
