EDIT- Found my unicorn 5mt XT Sports in WRB.. Paid 11k for it with 95k miles. 6mt is going to out me over my budget, but unicorn is probably worth it..

I thought I was going to grow up and get out of turbo cars, so I sold my 6MT 04FXT.. I regret it immensely. So it's time for another..

So my criteria are
-moonroof
-under or close to 150k miles
-any color other silver is a bonus

Other then that, I am pretty open. I have done the 4eat-6mt swap on a 04FXT so I am open to 04-06 cars that are automatic if the car is clean and priced well.

I wouldn't mind a 07-08, but the logistics of a manual swap with the Canbus system are too much, so this would have to be a 5mt car.

I have no problem flying from WA state anywhere to go get a car if it's worth it..

I am not afraid of salvage titles if there is proof of repair done well and the vehicle doesn't show signs of the accident, but price has to reflect the title..


Not looking for a show car or anything crazy clean, just want to build another fun daily 6 speed Fozz.

10k is what I'd like to budget for this car after the swap, but could go up to 12k for a turn key example. I won't be paying more than 6500 or so if it's an auto due to the cost of doing the 6 Speed swap. Hell, I'd even be interested in non running cars of the price was right.

If someone finds me a car and I end up purchasing it, I'll paypal you a $50 finders fee.

Tried searching for it and couldn't find it.. I keep pretty tight watch on Craigslist on the west coast of the US and don't remember seeing that one.

Dang you guys really want that finders fee!


I have already talked with both the black and the white fozz owners.. They are both potentially good options.. A bit expensive since I am going to be putting a 3k transmission in them and then 1k or so for a VF39 setup.. But I know that a manual is hard to find for less than 8k.

The 5mt-6mt swap is dead easy, the 4eat-6mt is not so much, but finding a good 4eat for 4-5k would make it worth it.

I watch Craigslist pretty tight on the west coast and normally see anything posted within a day or so, but if anything slips through the cracks glad to know you guys have my back!

I dont really care too much about the finders fee. I just wanna help since I'm always looking for a 08 FXT sport 5 SPD might as well help someone out.

I know where one of those unicorns is.. 08 FXT 5mt sports WRB 90k miles and the guy has considered trading it in for a new truck.. I have never seen the car and I have a 11k cash offer for him. But he hasn't been very responsive to me. That's what I would like the best, but can't make him sell it to me. Haha

Good luck maybe we can talk if you're able to get it off his hands. My budget is around 14k cash.

I don't want to spend more than 12k out the door.. So if I ever get him seriously talking and I can't make a deal with him, I will absolutely send you his contact info.. My 12k is pretty slim offer for one of those unicorns.

Yeah I have 14k now cash but I'm sure the wife would give me a little more to play with if need be. But if you do happen to talk to him just let him know for me I would really appreciate it.
