Default 1999 10AE Bad engine alabama $2500

Any interest in the car for $1500 with no engine or trans?

I bought this as a project car, but I just dont think Ill have the time to do anything with it. Its got 107,000 miles and everything worked before the engine was run low on oil. Its six speed, torsen, ABS, and hard S suspension.
It has a hard dog hard top roll bar, hard top side strikers, and koni yellows.
I'm posting it whole before I start to part it out.
Clean title. Id like $2500, but its OBO.

Sometimes I despise living in the far corner of the country. Everything is so far away.

Good luck with the sale, I'd buy it if you were local.

How's the soft top? Still have the hardtop? Any idea what it would take to get it running again?

The soft top is a aftermarket black canvas with a crappy plastic window. No hardtop. It needs a long block a.k.a. a used engine.

Is this the CL ad for your car? If it is you said the insurance company 'totaled' it.

So is the title a salvage title?

This is a different car. It has 2001 headlights and a trunk spoiler on it. The op's car doesn't have them.

Probably not the same car. The OP's has a front lip and no rear spoiler.

Just checking... The CL one is about 2-3hrs closer to me. Must be an oil problem in AL. What's the chances of 2 '99AE with fucked up engines because of no oil that close?

That is not my ad, definitely a different car. I'm not ready to start parting it out just yet, but I will post it on here when I am.

Mine has a clean title.

I may be interested. From the pics it looks like the paint on the hood is faded, is that true or is it just a bad angle?

If it's still available, I'd like to take it cash. I work for DIYAutoTune and have been looking for a project. Don't know if you know Ben Berusch from here- he has the same car. Call me at my office today please, your PM box is full. 678-974-1700 John
