    Due to lack of use and wanting to use my garage to build a car rather than store one in, I've decided to sell my super rare S13 Silvia Convertible. I've had it a few years and converted it from CA18DET auto to SR20DE manual. It has been super reliable and I figured it was more about show than go, so I didn't bother fitting a turbo engine.
    MoT mid 2016 (will confirm)
    Power roof
    Private plate
    SR20DE from Kouki 180SX
    Stainless exhaust
    5 speed manual
    Exedy Clutch
    Tein/JIC Coilovers
    Alloy radiator
    5 stud conversion spacers
    18" SSR Professors
    Clear/red rear lights
    Bride rails or Bride recliners
    S15 rear seats
    Personal steering wheel
    Sills and floor reinforcement replaced
    Recently painted
    Supermade skirts
    Rear spats
    Rare Aero front bumper

    Boot needs clearing out and tidying up, as does the engine bay. It's quite a harsh ride as you'd expect from a 25 year old convertible.

    I'm in no rush to sell it, so won't entertain stupid offers. It's been in my garage long enough for it to sit a bit longer.
    Looking for £7500 and I'm based in Derby. I'll get more pics when it's cleaner.

    Took it out to get some better pics and make the most of the good weather. There are a few creaks due to lack of use as to be expected and I think the front coilover springs are the cause. If I keep it I think I'll treat it to a new set.

    Having owned one with a DET in I can honestly say that the way you feel like using these cars probably doesnt warrant one!!

    That and the fact Mitch is only asking such ridiculously low money for it makes a conversion worthwhile if that's your thing..

    I sold mine for £13000 for reference, so this really is the truest example of a bargain that the DW forum will see for some time I reckon!!! Sure it wont be here long..

    of course i totally agree, just personal preference. It should sell no problem as it looks immaculate

    As Toby said, it's priced realistically and in my opinion these are really more for the rarity and amazing look than going fast. If I used it more I'd be tempted to turbo it but there is really no point for me.

    I know everyone says it but I'm really not fussed if it sells or not. If I could store it for a reasonable price I'd just put it away for a few months so I can get my garage space back to build my SR86 as I don't want to park the vert outside. The boot and engine bay need a good clean and it's not the most comfortable car to drive, so if I keep it I'll probably put some new soft suspension on it and give it a good going over and refurb the wheels.

    Just click on my name and send a PM.
    I'm getting hassled off my daughter not to sell it, so may well be withdrawing it from sale soon and buying a new set of HSDs for it :D.

    Provisionally sold.
    If I get messed about, I'll be keeping it so no longer for sale either way.
