Today I am selling my belovex MR2. It is a N/A model with a 5 Speed manual transmission. It is also the hardtop version (not Targa top). 220K on the Odo

The car was owned by a mechanic/enthusiast before my ownership. he has replaced many things including all struts, battery, alternator, bushings and a few other maintenance item.

The car also has been repainted. No rust to be found anywhere on the car. Not show quality but definitely looks good for its age.

The ONLY problem with the car is that the engine seems to have rod knock. It will either need to be rebuilt or replaced. The 4AGE engines found in this car are easily found for a few hundred dollars and can be swapped out in a weekend by yourself.

Price: $1500 obo.

Located in Northern Virginia.

I am interested in trades for trucks, motorcycles, or other sporty cars.

Thanks for looking.

The ad has been updated with all the requested information.

Any takers? This thing is so fun to drive!

-Irish, yes I sold the m20 a long time ago. Although I do have a full m30b35 available with matching transmission.

I swapped in a short-block in a MK1 MR2 with nothing more than hand tools and a few evenings.

Wow. I thought it would be a lot harder than that.

There is NO RUST. It is a great platform to do whatever you want.

I personally would swap in a 3sGTE turbo engine from the Mk2 MR2. There is a whole forum on the net that is dedicated to the swap.

Though these cars are dead simple to work on. Pinchvalve is correct that one can replace the shortblock in very easily.

How is this not sold yet?

Also, Pinchvalve probably didn't use any hammers when performing said engine swap.

Damn, I love those, had two of them. But I'm out, unless you want to trailer it to ATL. Rust free examples...and non-Pep Boyz'd to death, are hard to find.

Sorry I completely missed this.

Here is the thread for it on GRM with Photos.

EDIT the link is causing issues with my brouser so here are photos. I bumped the thread for the Mustang so it should be neer the top of the list if the link is not working.
