First off, I like the car, it just doesn't speak to me, nor fit a usage. Bonus, wife doesn't love it. 

1984 Dodge Omni 5 speed swap using a 525 trans and a turbo clutch. 

I have done some maintenance, as has the PO. 

2.2 webber 32/36 on it. 103k on the clock, I have put 5k on it myself. Leaks some oil, but starts every time with 2 throttle pumps down to 20deg. Gets 35mpg on the freeway. 

Has new struts on mopar performance springs, goo brakes. 

Needs/cons: 

-Driver and passenger floors have a few soft spots, but frame and everything else is rock solid. 

-pass rear door has some rot in the bottom of it, I do have one for it. 

-tach bounces (super common), got a few clusters I can find a good one. 

-occasional belt squeak

-needs alignment

-tucked bumper brackets need welded back on, bumper is currently off. 

-has some dents and dings 

It's not perfect, it's a dirt cheap good running 36 year old Chrysler.

It will come with all the leftover parts from the red Omni I bought as a parts car when I stripped it, only thing I know I'm using is a few body bits and interior so a literal truck load of parts. 

Wheels in photos do not come with it under any circumstances. It will be on rampage wheels or base neon wheels. 

$2000 obo open to trades. 

Located in Hebron, ohio 43025

Some things on trade list: 

Xj, miata, rx7, ranger, Dakota's, shadows/sundances, dual sports, groms, quads, farm equipment, things that go bang, weird things, small trucks and suvs, open to offers. 

 

I'll clean the car up and get some better pics, but I'll dump what i got.

I'm just glad your not local and that I'm broke. Buddy's brother had a Omni Glh in the mid 90's and I've liked Omni's since. 
 

looks like a solid price for a fun little domestic hatch.

Hmm, ok I’ll think on it and reach out if you still have it by the end of next week.

The Olds wagon is also trade fodder if you’d be more interested in that.

My only hesitation is distance. I don't think I can make it work in a reasonable timeframe. Like, probably not before spring.

We can talk about it. It's more of it needs momentum in some direction kinda thing.

Somewhere, there's a GT Cruiser willing to give up its heart so that Omni can truly live.

I'd love to have that as a good mpg commuter, but Lower Alabam' is a long way away!

My rampage was fun back in the early 80s. Drove a  Shelby glhs omni during some warranty work. Sales man didn't want to let my 20year old self use the Shelby , but it was all he had available. I was thinking - the day I can't out drive your pot bellied, gold chain wearing old azz, you can just set me out to pasture!!! That was a fun car. Now I look like him... Except the gold chain and comb-over!

I have been commuting in it, and it's a fun little car.

I'm still, even after all this time, partial to rwd platforms. Hey, several chevettes have been good beaters for me. But that is a cool fwd. I even have a pair of 87 Dakotas in VA , but They are prolly not worth getting them all the way out there!

Bump for a car I don't need, don't have the $$ for and is too far away to snag.

If anyone wonders how quick it'd be against modern traffic, my dad's '86 automatic would smoke my buddy's '87 five speed 4 cyl Mustang from a standing start....(not that I tried it more than a few hundred times and nettled him about to constantly).

Doeds the weber 32/36 have an electric or manual choke? The electric choke on those is finnicky but once you get it working right it's amazing for first cold start.  That's what we have on our Montero, really reliable carburetor.
