Open to offers, and trades. Especially if the trades have working AC.

Have been driving the car for a few months, including both daily duty to work and some 400 mile trips, with no issues.

Some people have asked: the rear end has solid diff bushings, solid subframe bushings, and a solid pinion brace, so its about as unlikely to break as you can get a Turbo II diff (next step up is the Ronin Speedworks 8.8 swap, ~$2000 or so). Downside is its pretty noisy, especially on tight low speed turns. Have a spare set of Turbo axles, which are getting to be super hard to find.

Car just got an 8.8 IRS rear, using a Ronin Speedworks kit. Rebuilt ford LSD, 3.73 gears. Huge improvement over the worn out Turbo II diff, and this one has real rubber bushings so it much less noisy and annoying during low speed turns. Cash price is now $1000 or so less negotiable. Still interested in trades.

Thanks!!! I put the 8.8 in over the weekend and its making me want to keep it, its that much of an improvement. I had my turbo diff solidly affixed in every way possible, and it was clunky and annoying (but never broke...).

The 8.8 is smooooootthhhh, not to mention first gear has a purpose now.

You were the guy selling that FC with the R-Magic kit right? I remembered having similar thoughts.

I keep hoping for a cheap slicktop shell with a complete interior to re-shell this thing...

The perfect Valentines day gift! Ditch that cheap box of chocolate for a late 80s Japanese copy of the Porsche 944 that has had its only unique quality ripped out by some Floridian in his garage and replaced by a powerful, patriotic, pushrod engine.
