Don't see too many automatic turbo cars.

Might be worth buying for the turbo engine core and parts.

But I have a known running Turbo engine for $300 more, if you are close enough. Same with the car. To get unknown Turbo engine you need to be close enough to make trip worth while to get the parts.

I thought the Turbo engine was not available with an automatic. Is this just a parts car? For that money it seems like it would be.

They weren't available from the factory. The reason is the two speed trans. A fully spooled turbo will cause a major boost surge at upshift resulting in major detonation. Care must be taken driving this setup.

Turbo with an automatic? More likely an automatic with a turbo. smiling smiley

At least the seller isn't sugar-coating the description. Convertible sitting 15 years outdoors in the midwest? I'll bet the rear set bottom and floor is still out in the pasture somewhere.

Also, I can't imagine the inner rockers aren't toast, judging by looking at the rest of the car.
