Although this project is virtually complete (letís face it, project cars are never done), I wanted to go back and document itís build. The car belongs to my son Jake. The build is his vision (and $). Iím just the wrench.
Iím doing this to help and inspire others with similar builds. Itís not perfect and we made mistakes along the way. Iím sure there are different/better ways to get the job done but this is what we did.
The car is a Ď96 850 Platinum. This was a limited edition (1000 sedans, 500 wagons) US only model. It came stock with the 222 hp 2.3L 15g turbo engine.
We purchased the car in the spring of 2015 for Jake who was a college freshman at the time. It needed some routine maintenance/repair and TLC but was a solid, good performing car. Early mods included a OBX cat back exhaust, ARD green tune and a set of 17 inch Tethys wheels.
