SOLD: Black '95 Spyder VR4 in CT

1995 Spyder VR-4
112,000 miles
$SOLD

Before putting my Spyder on Autotrader, I would like to offer it for sale to the 3Si community. The car is almost 100% stock and is in absolutely beautiful condition. Only mod is the rear ‘99 garnish, but I still have the original Spyder garnish (see pic) and will gladly swap it back upon buyer’s request.

I am the third owner of this car. It has always been in Connecticut. I bought the car thinking it would be my weekend pleasure cruiser, but it drives so well that I ended up using it as my primary vehicle and have put 8,000 miles on it in the last year without any troubles at all. The engine is as quiet as you will ever hear in a VR4 and runs great. No oil leaks or smoke.

The previous owner had the car completely repainted. The paint job itself was done well, but the rear decals were not replaced in the exact correct spots. (They are too far toward the center.) If you can deal with that minor detail, then you will have no complaints about the exterior. Other than the usual rock chips and dings on the front bumper and hood, it looks great, and the chips are not too bad. The headlights are haze-free. I replaced the rims and tires last year since the chrome was peeling really bad and the tires were mismatched and worn when I got it. The replacement rims came off of another Spyder. They are not perfect, as some minor peeling and bubbling is evident, but overall look good and the tires do not leak at all.

The top functions perfectly. There are few better feelings in this world than driving a VR-4 with the top down. Seriously. You want this car.

Only non-stock interior items are the floormats. Stereo is stock, although I did replace the dash tweeters because the original ones were crackling. Six disc CD changer is accessible behind the rear passenger seat and, unless it is too cold, too humid, or you hit the breaks too hard, it tends to work fairly well.

The price is firm. This is the absolute lowest I will sell it for. When I list it for sale outside 3Si it will be much more. If no one buys it, I get to keep the car and I still have a Spyder, so no loss on my part. Only reason I am offering it for sale is because I just spent a lot of money on a mint low mile ‘95 Danube Blue VR4 (the car I had been trying to track down for over five years) and now have one more 3000GT than I have spaces in my garage and I really don’t want to have to make one of the kids sleep outside.

I have brought my Spyder to several meets over the last year, most recently NEG, so if you want to know the truth about how good this car looks, just ask anyone who was there. Any other questions, just ask.

Thanks,
Kevin

That car looks like a beauty. How does it shift? Any smoke out of the exhuast?
Shifts smooth, clutch doesn't slip, no smoke.

Thanks Rob. You forgot to mention that you were also holding a radiator on your lap... :p

Clean car inside and out. Good luck with the sales Kevin. Which I had $$$ to take it off your hands.
Thanks Alan. I also wish you had the $$$!!! I certainly want this car to go to a good home.

congrats on the blue vr4 , free bump. where are pics and details to how you found a low, sub 50k mile vr4?
Not QUITE sub 50k, but close! Look for the thread regarding the blue vr4 on "flea bay," that is the car I bought. The seller delivered it to me Saturday and it is even better than I imagined. Should be 100% once I intall the new gauge cluster.

You're on fucking crack if you sell this car Kevin!



I gotta say though to anyone interested in this car if it were mine I wouldn't let it go for less than 20k. It's clean and Kevin has kept this spyder as nice as it could possibly be. Glad to hear you got another Danube blue since you got rid of the SL and now you have a Danube Blue VR-4... gotta help me find a nice TT when I have the money haha.

Would you be willing to meet a prospective owner, say from DC, halfway?
Son of a bitch! I had the car in DC recently!!! My sister-in-law goes to Georgetown. I'll talk to my wife and see if she has any plans to visit again, but I probably won't be able to make any trips over the next several weeks because of prior plans... if the car remains unclaimed I would certainly be willing to meet you in the middle, perhaps NJ. I think my next free weekend is Oct 12-13th. How pathetic is that?!? But this does give me an opportunity to stick another pic in (from the streets of DC of course):



Robb: Thanks for the kind words. Well, besides the crack problem... :p Seriously, if I end up selling the car outside of 3Si I will ask a lot more, but having it go to a good home where I may be able to maintain occasional visitation rights is certainly worth something to me!!!

My

Gawd!! :eek:

My bank account is about to shit itself haha. I'm talking to my credit union tomorrow. PM me your VIN# so that I can see how much they'll loan (they run it to get options, loan value, etc).

I'd love to get my hands on a black spyder. Hopefully you're nearby an airport or could pick me up. :D :cool:

Damn you Kevin!!! :D Guess there won't be 3 black spyders at NEG anymore :( .

To prospective buyers: This car is mint, I went around and compared it to my spyder and this car makes mine look old, lol. Clean on the inside and out, and the top does work flawless as Kevin says it does, btw that 99 garnish is sick on the spyder. Great car and a really low price, Kevin you must demand visitation rights!

Good Luck bud!

As long as you don't have to pay child support on that baby I don't see why not. BUT SHIT, if you are gonna drive that thing anywhere near south jersey you need to stop by my house or something Kevin! You, your wife, me, and tiff can all go out to AC or something!

On a side note I told Tiff how disapointed I was that I saw you wanted to get rid of the spyder and she said "Oh my god noooo it's too pretty!"
