1992 LS-L 5MT for sale

From my post on Facebook:

"Thus comes to an end my deep dive into the "perfect modified SVX" experiment. The experiment is by no means complete and is well documented for the next owner to pick up where I left off. I am the fourth owner of this car, with the first being an older lady who babied it up to about 40k miles. It was then bought by a long-time member of the SVX network in 2008, who sold it to its third owner in 2018 with 61,700 miles. That owner hardly put any miles on it (due to health issues) and I bought it from him in November of 2020 with 62,600 miles.

This car is great example of a tastefully modified SVX that is in great condition. Most of the weak points have been addressed and quite a few things have been fixed or upgraded. The cool thing is that everything is functional. Let me repeat that - everything on this car works. It is not a show queen, but definitely a well-cared for driver.

I have lots more pictures and info that I could share with prospective buyers.

The will car come with a NEW aluminum radiator, which is one of the big ticket items I didn't get to install.

Recent maintenance:
- 64,000 miles: new battery installed, left rear brake caliper replaced, brake fluid flushed, oil changed (Mobil1 synthetic)
- 63,150 miles: wheels road-force balanced, rebuilt power steering pump, new power steering lines, new accessory drive belts, LED low-beam headlights installed, clutch pedal action adjusted
- 55,000 miles: all fluids changed using genuine Subaru fluids and filters. Transmission and rear diff filled with Royal Purple 75w90 synthetic gear oil. Valve cover gaskets, timing belt, water pump, idlers and spark plugs were replaced. Sun visors replaced.

- Synthetic oil used starting with 2nd owner (no records of what type the 1st owner used)
- Most service records dating back to the original owner

Full list of modifications:
- Full 5MT swap, 4.11 final drive from a 2004 Forester XT (SG). The transmission was removed from a car with 7,000 miles. It was then rebuilt with upgraded parts. Transmission crossmember built by AWD LLC in New Jersey. Pedals, shift linkage and driveshaft adapted using the Smallcar Performance kit.
