    Breaking - 1994 Dragon Green VR6

    Hi,

    I'm sad to say that I'm about to make a proper start of breaking my last Corrado. It's a 1994 VR6, in dragon green, pictured below (taken today)



    I bought it around 18 months with the intention of another project and potential TDi conversion but unfortunately real life got in the way!

    Details:

    1994 VR6
    160k miles

    Already gone:

    Interior and doorcards
    Dashboard shell
    Both front wings
    Airbox
    Drivers door handle

    EVERYTHING ELSE is still available.

    The car does have a dealer installed Diavia air conditioning system which I have partially removed in order to repair a leaky radiator. It all appears to be there including the compressor, radiator, condenser, all pipework, relays, look and switches. Also present is the original Diavia paperwork detailing the installation. If anyone is interested in this, please let me know.

    The engine can currently be heard running and sounds great, despite its mileage. The oil is clean and it starts very well. I am fairly confident that it's had the chains and tensioners done. I am willing to sell this as a complete conversion or split it and sell individual parts. I have scanned it with Vagcom and there are no fault codes.

    The wheels are 16 x 7 BBS Pininfarina 5-spokes. Very nice but in need of a refurb which I may get done prior to sale. If anyone is interested though let me know. They do clear 312's however unfortunately they have now sold!

    I'm not going to list every part here with a price. As per my previous breaking threads, I prefer it if people enquire as to what they want. Either on here or via PM is fine.

    Please bear in mind that I have broken three other Corrados so have plenty of parts in stock, again let me know if you want something.

    I tend to price low to get things sold rather than hold out for high prices on everything too. If it can be posted then I will quote a price including postage.

    A couple more pictures:





    Thanks for reading and like I said, please let me know what you want.

    Thanks
    Tom

    Are the rear brake disk shields present and in good condition, suitable for powder coating or similar?

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    is the plastic splash guard that sits under the car in front of the passenger wheel available? I think it screws to the front bumper too.

    Ah - I was sure I'd read they were obsolete. I'll look into new ones I think!
