Default 2000 with bad rod bearing

I am selling a dark blue 2000 with Nardi steering wheel. 111866 miles. Jensen radio. Interior is all black and in good shape. Is treated with Armor All. Needs paint work and the engine problem.

It was driven ~100 miles on low oil without my knowledge. I have narrowed it down to being a damaged rod bearing in the 4th cylinder. It isn't completely gone but ticks under load.

It has been sitting for the past 5 months with periodic cranking to keep the battery good. Tires have about 30% life on them. Should be good for a build project.

I am asking 3500 OBO.

If anyone is interested I will give it a bath and take some pictures. The pollen got to it in the last few months.

How many miles?
Condition of everything other than the motor? What does paint work entail?

Give me a sec on the miles, I'll have to go check on that. I'll add it to my first post in a few.

When it was painted there was an accident in the shop while the paint was curing and paint was scrapped away above the passenger tail light. Original color was forest green and the spots don't show much at distance.

Yeah, that's what I'm seeing. Getting a few for $700. If Urban would be willing to pay shipping.... It would still be a deal.
