[SOLD] 87' GN street/strip Texas car

$23k (NOTE: I have rebuilt the front end since the original ad, also replaced the orginal steering shaft with the upgraded Kirban Jeep Cherokee shaft, replaced the typical leaking rear main seal and have started installation of a brand new Alky Control dual nozzle meth system! Low ball offers not considered as I am just as interested in keeping/finishing/driving the car as selling it.

I bought this car a out of extended storage from a local friend. I have put a lot of time and money into her with intentions of keeping it (I had a quick Turbo T Limited 20 years ago). All work done was towards that goal! HOWEVER I have since purchased and improved an LS swapped station wagon and am having way to much fun running real quick in True Street plus I have a multi purpose supercharged Vette.

So....sadly the GN is offically one too many toys.

PLEASE NOTE: Per forum rules please do not flame, if you have constructive thoughts or objections PLEASE PM me direct for discussion. Much appreciated. My direct email is rrburnham@gmail.com

ZR1, 87GN and 86 T Type, life is good
I have seen some people who in the current market are asking far more for their cars than they are worth. Yours is not one of those. This is a very nice, low mileage, well thought out, well built car. I would not be at all surprised to see you get 20-22 for it. GLWS and great job putting it together.
