That is a killer deal. And for someone who can source parts and do some labor, it should be quite an easy turn around.

Beaten up, you say? It's all kinds of fucked. Nice find, though; good project ahead of you but exactly why you'd do this, I'm confused.

mine is a 5 speed manual with LSD and it is not a sport design. From the pics so far it doesn't look like a SD but either way thats not a bad deal for an IS. I also like projects, this looks like fun.
