Im selling my 91 240sx hatch. Shes got a 95 motor in her that needs rings at the very least. Ive exhausted all my funds putting this car back together, and having it STILL not in a driveable state kills me. nough about that.. heres a lit of pros and cons

PROS
Brand new (yes, brand new 0 miles) DC header, B&M shifter (never installed), New clutch set...

Shes black with a mostly straight body
Tein S-Tech springs
Pacesetter exhaust
Tinted windows
Has 2awg wire run in it for an amp
Blacked out front turn signals and sidemarkers (still light up too!)
H4 conversion headlights
Fog lights
All emissions removed
High flow cat/resonator
91 intake cam
all new ignition tuneup pieces
7 Spoke alloys in good shape with good tires.
AC works, not brand new, but she cools.
Cons
She needs rings
Needs a driver's fender
Needs a dent filled in in the driver's door
Couple interior pieces missing int he rear hatch area
TC rod bushings need replacing
AC could use some freon, but she cools
AC needs a tensioner pulley

Other than that either i forgot it, or it isnt important
Ill try to get pics up ASAP, shoot me an offer.. im just going to buy my old acura legend back from my dad and fix the clutch in it. Im tired of my 240's attitude toward life.. After spending so much time and money on it, and wasting other peoples' time helping me with it makes me feel like a retard and now i just want it gone. LMK if you have any questions.

I would like to get about $1800 for it, which i think is fair considering the amount of money spent on parts that are brand new, not even a mile on them, and all the custom work done to the interior. Like i said, ill post pics asap

lol. I hate to get rid of her. Ive had her 4 years and driven her a total of 8k miles. I only drove her from 3/11/06 to 7/2/06... ive given up on her because im out of money... Oh yeah i knew there was a 240 forum i didnt post this in! i posted it in just about every car forum im a part of. Heres a pic of the passenger's side. Driver's side is missing a fender and needs a final coat of paint.

All she needs is piston rings, a fender, and some TLC. Great car for audio enthusiasts as well.. she gets LOUD. When i had my SX hooked up, the dash would move.

mine's black with meshies

what kina rebuild? make it bullet proof or just fix?

phantom240
10-19-2006, 09:25 PM
i want meshies like i want punani right now. lol. Nah just a mild rings/headgasket rebuild kinda thing. The motor thats in it now is gonna be a bulletproof forged internals at 8.5:1 CR with a fat snail strapped to it. Possibly a gt32 or something... but my old motor will be put back in with rings, new front cover and timing chain, and a headgasket.

sounds like a good idea. i have the money to do things at the moment but I have no idea what I want to do. so far I'm either doing the RB or LSx engine. I have a ka-t manifold from ssac topmount (yea I know its ssac but you can reinforce the welds) and i'll sell it to you if you want? haha

lol, you ever seen the amount of money it takes to stuff that motor in there? the 10k for the motor...then all the fab work to actually get everything to work... rb20 or 25 is your friend. an rb20 is almost a direct swap, and is much cheaper than a sr20.. they both make the same hp stock, but the rb is like 700$ cheaper. and 8.5:1...... booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oost. do it. more pics too plz. you say you had some custom interior work done, so lets see it. also show pics of drivers side.... does this have the normal 240sx cancer? or did you fix the problem with the rust under the stock spoiler?

Im still tryin to get my camera from my buddy. He and his fiance had a kid a couple months back, and he has a wierd hereditary skin condition called ED. Im not sure what it stands for, cuz i cant pronounce it... but hes been usin my camera to document his crap. Anyways, I can show you some of the pics of the interior work i did. And as far as the cancer, the car is about 100% rust free. It originally had the hatch cancer, but i replaced it with a wingless hatch. Unfortunately i wont be able to get any good pics of the car because its on the trailer still. Anyways, heres some pics of its progression through life.
