Default 1998 Impreza L Coupe - Blown motor - Mods

SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD

Hello - My petcock broke, leaked coolant all over the place, overheated, blew head gasket...

The PROS:
KYB AGX's with ~60,000 miles
SPT springs w/ ~60,000 miles
Group-N top hats w/ ~60,000 miles
Brand new rotors/pads up front (1 week old)
Kartboy Short throw w/ lower bushings
Solid endlinks and 20mm RSB (cant remember endlink brand, RSB from WRX)
WRX Wheels with 2 brand new 'normal' tires (1 week old) and 2 half used Hankook Ventus HR2's (I think)
Aftermarket power sunroof (slightly leaky, I suspect easily fixable)
Coupe
5-speed
02-03 WRX front and rear seats
Hella Supertones
Alpine HU cda-7998 I believe (the one w/ the analog LCD display and built-in amp)


The CONS:
Blown engine w/ 221,xxx miles on the clock (headgasket, see above) 2.2 litre EJ22 engine.
Rear warped drums (assuming since I have new front rotors)
Very minor rust, 2 small spots on A-pillar
Minor leak in sunroof or antenna (cant exactly find the leak, leaks in HEAVY rain only, not every rain)


**Car is sold as is. Currently in Allentown, PA at Lehigh Valley Honda on Lehigh Street (in back). Barely runs without overheating pretty quickly. Suggest to tow away. Would really prefer to not part it out, but that would be my last resort. Car would need to be picked up, will not ship. Would make a pretty good shell for a nice swap or a good daily driver upon some refurbs... I LOVED this car...served me all through college, put about 100k miles on it, no major problems until this... it will be missed.

I just put $300 into it last weekend, new pads/rotors, fuel filter, coolant drain (ironic huh?), thermostat, oil, tires, alignment, plugs, wires...those parts literally have less than 500 miles on them...

***Still considering fixing it, BUT as of right now, highest bidder that can come pick it up and arrange the deal with me will take it. Don't waste your time or mine, email or PM for questions.

I love my "new" L. It has an ej22 with a recently rebuilt top end, I'd recommend a rebuild with all those nice mods you have on it, not to mention insurance is $40/mo on it haha

Yeah I commute for work and this thing is a feather when it comes to city driving... 28mpg in the city on a car that's 12 years old... i want to cry lol

Unfortunately now I don't have the spare cash or time to do a rebuild...plus it'll still be a car with 221,xxx miles on it, so I'm not sure it's worth it. There is maybe a 2% chance of me dropping a beautiful WRX core into it... we shall see... i guess it's time for research.

**Forgot to mention...this IS the ej22 engine... I'll edit first post

Right now a mechanic at the dealer it's at said he'd do $300... not sure how serious he is... like I said above, highest offer gets it, I'm not really attaching a set price to it.

Thanks everyone for the interest. I should be more clear:

- Car is in Allentown, I live/work in Philly, so any deal MUST happen on weekends (in Allentown), no exceptions
- I've gotten a few offers for the whole car in the $500 range, but other offers to part it out (suspension, wheels...) for more than the whole car cost.
- Car runs but overheats very quickly, if a deal is met, I HIGHLY suggest towing/trailering
- Please PM with offers, everyone says "cash in hand" but no one says how much...
- It's hard for me to call people during the day, I will use our PM/email convo's as a measure and that is still the best way to go until a deal has been settled on

I'll do my best to answer PM's and check this thread, but email is probably the best way to reach me.

Thanks again guys

Nobody says how much because you don't list a price. This isn't ebay. The rules for posting cars for sale here say to list a price. If you want to go the "bidding" route, by all means throw it up on ebay and see what you can get.

BTW, it's a gorgeous car! Good luck with the sale.
