    78k mile 2 prev owner standard manual prefacelift grey S13 a.k.a Gracey

    SOLD


    Gracey is now ready for me to hand it on to the next keeper. I've tried to point out all the good stuff AND the less good stuff even though its pretty superficial.

    She's a low-mileage, good overall condition, 2 previous owner, grey prefacelift manual S13 with very little rust that has had a bit of money and a lot of time spent on her by me over the last 12 months to bring up up to a condition that she could be used as a daily/rolling project.
    She runs and handles as a standard S13 should.

    I'd like her to go to someone that wants a near standard s13 to enjoy and look after rather than as the basis for a skidder or street-porn pipe-dream.

    Good bits

    Sailed through an honest MOT yesterday
    Low mileage - 78K miles (40K in the first 3 years lol)
    Very good standard interior and carpets
    Immaculate pepperpot wheels
    Everything works
    One of the least rusty examples of an S13 that I've seen
    Lots of provenance
    Comes with personalised numberplate (so you could recoup some of your outlay if you wanted)
    Also comes with a large number of spares (basically everything I have accumulated over the last 22 years of s13 ownership) probably worth something like 600 if sold separately.
    Fitted with spacesaver for flat boot but spares include a full pepperpot wheel and tyre

    Almost ready to use as a reliable daily (see below).

    Recently had (last 12 months)
    cambelt change
    Toad Ai606 alarm with remote locking
    4 brand new Conti PremiumContact 5s
    front tension arms replaced
    New (correct) battery

    What you should do to it soonish
    Refit undertray (I've repaired it but not got around to refitting it.
    A Walbro fuel pump and o-ring (60 and 30 minutes work). To use it as a daily on the original pump would be risky IMO.
    Rear numberplate holder needs replacing at some point as it has dissolved (like they do).
    Source and fit a battery retaining clamp

    What does it need for a full resto so its worth 10K ?
    Refit the scoop for the WMIC
    Bodywork has a few dents and scrapes and has been resprayed (badly) on more than one panel. It looks ok from 10 feet but from 10 inches, eugh. Its not going to win any concours events without a decent investment in paint.
    Engine bay would benefit from an engine out clean.
    Brakes work fine but look a little crusty. Same goes for the suspension components
    Replace the wheel arch liners. They have a couple of bits cut out of them (I know not why)
    Renovate and refit mudflaps

    Non-standard items
    It doesn't have a rear spoiler any more. This isn't a problem. The bootlid has been smoothed over very nicely. No sinking or droop.
    Exhaust is not OEM and not stainless. Again this isn't a problem. It doesn't blow or anything.

    Pictures to follow...

    PRICE: 5000 or very nearest offer.

    What a lovely looking thing. I want it so bad but don't think my partner would be happy about spending her wedding fund on it!

    Every now and then I pop back in this place and re-live the dream of owning an S13 like the first one I had. Knowing how you’ve looked after your motors it’s blooming tempting but I would want to put a T28 in it and it deserves better. It’s lovey to see an S13 that doesn’t look like it crashed through a Halfords window.

    Hello mate. Its almost like a reunion when you pop back up again

    I'm not trying to demand someone keep it bog-standard, just try to avoid turning it into something hopelessly impractical for road work.

    Its got a nice interior so don't strip and cage it.
    Its got nice pepperpots so don't fit 20s with stretched 255s.
    Fit a mongoose but don't fit a cat cannon.
    Step away from the cableties !

    Wanna go HD Stage 3 ? That should be fun with 195/60R15s

    Haha I reckon that stage 3 skinny tyre combo would be quite good fun in the winter! I showed the wife last night and she looked at me like which means no, but not NO. How are the subframe bushes doing? Do they still have their fluid in them? Sooooo tempting especially knowing where it's come from - good to see the regulars still propping things up!

    I'm loving how much these are worth nowadays

    [man maths] 5K minus what you can get for the plate minus the spares if you chose to sell them minus club member discount and you are looking at a low mileage daily for a tad over 2,500. That's not bad money, is it ? [/man maths]

    I'm not trying to be greedy.

    That has got to be the cleanest interior I have seen on a 13! If I didn't already have my S13 as a daily (and 90% standard just a bit worse for wear after 131k) I'd be all over this like white on rice. Seriously though I wish you all the very best with the sale

    Just popping back in to covet your car some more. It's weird to see an S13 with so much fuel showing on the gauge.
