Leather=Torsen

The engine and rear end alone are worth $2k

yeah if i had the cash id haggle him down to like 2k flat then either fix it and sell it for more or part it out and make a few bucks... what a entire Torsen set up goes for like 800? 99 motors go for least what 650? Then the Tranny and so on and so forth.... Yeah anyone with money burning a hole in their pocket should snag it.

According to the sales flier for '95 http://www-cse.ucsd.edu/users/paloma....html#PACKAGES

The pep came with a torsen and the only way to get leather was to start with a pep and add leather.

Now that's not saying that somebody didn't yank the torsen already, but it should have come from the factory with a torsen.

The current owner has owned the car for about 6 months. He never checked the oil and ran it dry destroying the original engine. He had a family member install another engine in it from a 99. He claims that the engine will start and then immediately die. The family member that installed the engine didn't have any more time to mess with it so he is being forced to sell it to cover other bills. It has been sitting outside since it died, but the top doesn't leak or anything but is clouded up from age. The tires have about 70% thread and the rims are in good shape. He insists that it has every available option, cruise, A/C, ABS and even the Torsen LSD. Not a bad price and he seems desperate to sell it and not confident that it will. I bet he would take $1500 if someone offered him cash. If I had the cash I would be all over this.

Yeah from his post you can sense urgency. 1500 cash you'd have to haggle i bit but it would be easy... yeah id be all over this too if i had 1500 laying around you could easily make your money back + some or have a nice daily.
