02 SVTF. Busted timing belt. Whole car, or not at all

I'll keep this short and sweet. My car had 120,5xx on it. Timing belt went at low speed pulling out of a gas station. It had stalled a couple times previous, and I was hoping to limp it home. I've got at least 4 bad valves. Maybe more. Haven't pulled the head off yet.

Car is located in southern Kansas City, MO.

$2500 for everything. NO TRADES. I AM NOT PARTING IT OUT. PERIOD.

I can fix this car, but I really don't want to. I've got a driveway full of Mitsubishis and I am honestly sick and tired of fixing cars. It's time for some house cleaning....but I'm not going to lose my butt on this either.

If anyone wants a killer deal on modified '94 Stealth twin turbo, let me know. (I'm not parting that out either)

If nobody is interested in the Focus, I'll just fix it and keep driving it. No trades, no haggling. In God I trust...all others pay CASH. You either want it or you don't.

If anyone wants to deal with shipping, it's all on your end, and the car doesn't leave my garage until the funds clear.


02 SVT Focus, 3 door. Sonic blue
Clean title, but body is a little rough. The clearcoat on the passenger side rear quarter is fogged. It had a bad paint repair before I bought it.
Rear bumper is an SVT part, but is black. Front bumper is a POS Wings West urethane something or other.
I have a stock SVT front end on the shelf, still in primer. Hasn't been installed since I bought it from the salvage yard. Condition is virtually perfect. I also have a set of Xenon headlights I got at salvage. Lenses are fogged, but everything works. I also have the connectors to install them. I have both fog lights and the grille for the bumper, but one of the fog lights has a mangled bracket. It'll need to be replaced.
Mechanically stock, except for an AEM intake.
Originally had black/blue interior. Swapped in front and rear Recaros. Doors still have blue inserts
Brand new Firestone Firehawk Wideoval AS tires back in April
17" Enkei RPF1 rims
I have 3 stock silver SVT rims. Fourth one was damaged by road debris.

Brand new timing belt kit. I had it on the shelf ready to install, but had to keep driving the Focus while I kept working on one of the Mitsubishis. I installed the belt and pulleys as part of diagnosing the timing belt problem, but I've never even so much as tried to crank it since then.

Brand new water pump still in the box.

Timing belt tool kit. Used once. See above.

Spare ECU and key. Current ECU and spare are both RLA1 if anyone cares.

I'll post pictures if there's any serious interest.

Post here or PM me with questions.

If this post is still around in a few weeks, it means the car hasn't sold and I fixed it and it's my daily driver again.
