Car description

I purchased this car in April of 2013 from a dealer in California. Since that time I have repaired and replaced various items to bring the car into good working order. In December 2015, engine and transmission was removed from the car by Northcoast Exotics (top Ferrari Engine re-builder in Cleveland, invoices pictured) and did the following:

  • · Checked oil pressure with mechanical gauge, verified it is holding pressure (it is)
  • · Removed Engine Assembly from car
  • · Dissembled Transaxle, Differential and Plain shaft
  • · Replaced 2nd gear, plus various seals and bearings
  • · Limited slip differential installed and adjusted
  • · Changed timing belts
  • · Removed Cam Levers and adjusted valves
  • · Changed gaskets and seals including front and main seals
  • · Sealed both pans and shift rod
  • · Replaced all filters and oil, coolant and gear oil
  • · Cleaned entire engine compartment
  • · Valve clearance adjusted
  • · Broken mounts replaced
  • · New spark plugs
  • · Repaired choke

This repair cost about $15,000. After this repair the car sounds and drives wonderfully. There transmission is like new, shifting perfectly. I have original receipts and have driven the car about 200 miles since to verify excellent running condition of the motor.

In addition to this major repair, the following items have been repaired or replaced. (I have receipts)

  • · New water pump
  • · Thermostat
  • · Fuel Gauge
  • Reupholstered drivers seat
  • Palo Alto Speedometer rebuilt the speedometer, as it was not working when I purchased the car so the title shows an Odometer Discrepancy. The odometer reads 2664 today.

All the gauges are working and the engine is in great condition. The paint is in good condition with some scratches (2 pictures, one of the driver headlight has some bubbling and the roof has some scratches). I believe the car was repainted at some point but I have no history of the car before I purchased it. The upholstery is in great condition and the carpeting appears to be new before I purchased the car. The windows go up and down under power.The car was only driven in the warm months and I purchased the car from California. I have some shots from underneath the car in a Dropbox.

The compression was checked on 11/17/2016. These readings were from a cold engine. The pictures can be viewed in the Dropbox link. The readings are 115, 105, 120, 125, 100, 110, 120, 130.

Some defects / issues include:

  • E-Brake does not work
  • The A/C does not blow cool air
  • The door locks do not work well
  • The radio is not a factory radio, it is newer
  • The interior passenger door panel is loose
  • Scratches on the roof
  • The right turn signal does not flash when headlights are on (it does flash when lights are off)
