Near perfect 1997 Geo Metro for sale

Hi everyone,
I'm new here, so I hope it's okay to place an add.
I came across a nearly mint condition 1997 Geo Metro at the wrecking yard last year. It would be the perfect platform for an Ecomodding project. I have too many projects and would like to sell it to someone who appreciates these cars.
white, 1.0 3cyl Base model, no A/C or Radio. Salvage due to recovery from wrecking yard. No fluid leaks.
9/10 body with original paint, not a spot of rust, never in an accident.
9/10 interior nearly perfect original interior
5 speed manual transmission
Perfect spare, jack, tools and owners manual.
198,000miles, gets 50 mpg regularly on my commute from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz at 70 MPH
Things I've replaced <5000 miles ago
New CV shafts
New Interstate battery
New timing belt and waterpump
New 1.3 flywheel and heavy duty clutch
4 new Michelin Defender 80,000mi ecoX tires
Scan gauge II installed
Mobil 1 0-20
Redline synthetic manual transmission oil.
Asking 2900.00, about what I have in it.

I'll take care of that. 1997geometro, you should be able to post pictures now.

Edit: It seems that I do not have that authority. I'll check with Daox or Metro and see if they can change it for you.

You can post pictures now 1997geometro.

How are the front control arm mounts (typical rust point)?

Thank you for your interest and helping me to post pictures to the thread. Today I'll try to get some pictures up. When I tried yesterday an error message said: " file size exceeds max allowable" I'll need to find a way to reduce the file size or post to a picture hosting site. About the undercarriage its is a California car, so it's never seen salt, there is no corrosion, even the plating on the fasteners looks new.

Awesome wrecking yard find! Kinda makes you wonder how something like this ended up there in the first place. Very nice car, GLWS.

Probably due to the high mileage, estate sale or charity donation. I really didn't need another car, but this one was just too nice to pass up...

Wow, that thing is in superb condition, I honestly thought you were exaggerating a little bit. Definitely worth the asking price!
