SOLD!

I'm looking to sell my 1999 Outback Sport. You can find full details, more pictures, more stories, etc about this car on my site (http://www.jenandneil.com/28fsp/forsale), but I'll include the basics here:
http://www.jenandneil.com/photos/d/51720-2/IMG_20120813_185451.jpg

The car is nearly fully built as an FSP autocross car, and it will come with lots more Subaru spare parts, extra wheels/tires, suspension components, bushings, etc. It's not an appropriate street car, although it can pass a state inspection with little effort. It probably could be returned to streetable status if someone was willing to put in the work, but I don't think that's the right market for it. I recognize that means I'm severely limiting my selling market, but I want to make sure there are no misconceptions about the car.

The particularly valuable bits to the car:
* Engine: The 2.2L EJ22 engine is well built nearly to the limits of Street Prepared, and has less than 10,000 miles on it. It will last just about forever. I estimate the value to be around $1200. It would take a couple hundred dollars to buy a junk one, and then another $1500 to build it like this one has been.
* Drivetrain: 5-speed transmission rebuilt by Dent Sport less than 5k miles ago with an OBX helical front diff and an STi 5-speed DCCD controlled by a DCCDPro. I estimate the value of it at about $1000. The parts and cost to build totalled about $1500.
* Suspension Coilovers: The RCE Tarmac 2 suspension setup has got probably less than 10k miles on it total, and has spent it's whole life wrapped in plastic wrap so that the threads are very clean. I estimate its value around $1800. It would cost nearly $3k to replicate it new, except that the GC chassis coilover setup is no longer available for purchase.
* Interior: Roll bar and Ultrashield seats and harnesses cost around $1500 total. Depending on the interests of the buyer, I may want to keep one or both seats.

I think the ideal buyer is either someone who wants a fast, albeit not nationally competitive, autocross car or wants to build a very fast rallycross car. With the STi drivetrain (minus the turbocharged motor) and a lot less weight to move around, I suspect it would do really well with a set of rally tires. And since it's a wagon, it can carry around those tires easily and look cooler doing it. ;-)

The price is $4,500, but it's hard to price a car like this, so please make any offer you think is reasonable. The car is registered and inspected and can be driven on the street, and will be made available for autocross test-drives to a serious buyer. See the page on my site (http://www.jenandneil.com/28fsp/forsale) for the most exact details. I promise it will put a smile on your face.

what internals did you use on your engine build?

Subaru pistons. "I used the Subaru 0.020" second standard overbore pistons" from SoloRu Modifications | JenAndNeil.com (http://www.jenandneil.com/28fsp/modifications)
I promise - just about everything you could want to know about the car is on those pages.

I've removed the RCE Tarmac 2 coilovers. I've removed the racing seats, harnesses, and quick-release steering wheel. It has not-so-pretty-but-not-bad D2 Racing coilovers now, stock 2.5RS seats, and a stock steering wheel.

New asking price: $2500
