    2001 Silver Ironman For Sale!!!! $2000 non neg. for quick sale!

    With great sadness I am selling my 2001 VX. Unfortunately I needed a family friendly car and have no choice. I've owned this car for 5 awesome years and loved every minute of it. I was in the process of restoring it, starting with all the mechanical stuff first. It now runs great and has a new engine and transmission,along with many other new parts. I'm hoping to sell it to someone that appreciates the VX for what it is and will give it a great home! Here is the questionnaire that I filled out so there is full transparency. You can contact me at for more info or pics. I will try to post pics here also (if I can figure it out).

    ~Any service history records? Yes

    ~How long have you owned it? almost 7 years

    ~Electric windows work properly or bind? Work properly, never had a problem

    ~Condition of window rubber track/gaskets...(many have ripped or been cut) have usual wear

    ~Look behind door panels to see if vapor barrier is present - (may indicate previous work on windows) Don't know, doesn't look like panel has ever been opened

    ~Window regulator /motor been replaced? Never needed to

    ~Any oil consumption noted, under ANY conditions? (some seem to consume a little when on prolonged highway driving) I change oil every 3-4000 miles, never needed to add additional oil. Engine is new regardless

    ~Chrome wheels peeling? A little on inside like most but not noticeable

    ~Any ABS light problems? Had ABS changed and haven't had a problem since

    ~OEM CD player still work correctly or ERR3 code? Any jammed CDs? Have a new kenwood flip out screen system with base woofer ($2000 spent on it)

    ~Any problems with TOD? Never

    ~Any clunking when decelerating or accelerating? Never

    ~Brand & model of tires & approx tread remaining- Firestone Firestone Destination LE2 60r18

    ~Do all 4 tires match in brand, size, model & wear? Yes

    ~How long have these current 4 tires been on? 2 years

    ~Timing belt changed? Yes 1 year ago

    ~Original OEM brake pads or replacements? OEM Brake pads, recently changed

    ~Any fluids dripping, ever? No drips

    ~Last time & what fluids have been changed?Oil changed every 3-4k miles

    ~What type of fluids (synthetic oil or regular, motor oil, diff, tranny, transf case)? Regular oil..engine is new

    ~Evaluate/describe condition of all cladding - scrapes, holes, deformation, dryness, chalky appearance, any evidence of being "painted" in any way? Cladding has usual fading but I use Back to Black after every wash. There is a 2 inch defect on passenger side, rear bumper underneath corner. Bought it that way,never bothered me

    ~Are all cladding screws present? Any striped? All present

    ~Condition of 4 screw knobs on rear door panel (often break off) All good except for one that doesnt tighten

    ~Condition of inside door opening levers & mechanism (sometimes broken) All work

    ~Any unusual /excessive vibrations - very subjective of course- none

    ~Any problems with motor mounts? none

    ~Determine the history of the car's physical location, if possible (i.e. East Coast, potential rust, desert, etc) Started off in Texas then was shipped to Long Island @ 10 years ago

    ~Inspect thoroughly for rust!! Any evidence of rusted bolts anywhere? No

    ~Status of front bumper reinforcement bar? (Often rusts off completely) No noticeable problem

    ~Status of rear license plate light/socket/bracket -(often severely rusts) -will give indication if it was in a rust belt area. No problems

    ~Evaluate engine bay- clean? dirty? Any evidence of leaking fluids of any type?? Evaluate fluid levels. Fluid level normal, Engine bay is what a vehicle with 199k miles would look like. I had a brand new engine installed 7k miles ago. There is a little oil sweat by gasket but probably needs tightening

    ~Evaluate air filter- excessively dirty? OEM or after-market? OEM, seems fine

    ~Has muffler ever been replaced? What's the status of the current muffler? Rusted, surface rust, etc? OEM, after-market? (Since, as I understand it, these mufflers are no longer available, so an aftermarket one with some modification to the pipes may be required.) Muffler has recently been replaced along with exhaust pipe. Muffler needs to be replaced.

    ~Has it had to go through emissions testing recently? (Some states require for registration, some don't)Every two years, it is due in October again

    ~Ever been lifted or torsion bars cranked? No

    ~Condition of CV joints? (Can be damaged after being lifted) Normal

    ~Battery- status, condition and age- New battery, mint

    ~Any unusual flashing of any lights on dash or shifter? (Mode selection switch may be bad) No

    ~Any odors inside, such as smoke? No, just usual used car scent

    ~Condition of leather seats...scrapes, rips, tears, wear, abrasion, driver's side seat bolster – Front seats, especially drivers seat shows some wear, no tears

    ~Condition of leather steering wheel - (often heavily scraped up) ok, but I installed a new leather cover

    ~Condition of levers that bring seat back forward to allow access to rear seats (often broken) Good

    ~Does it have an OEM roof rack? Just the side rails

    ~Are OEM rail caps in place and/or available? Yes

    ~Ever taken off road? No

    ~OEM or after-market tail pipe? After market but have original in good shape too

    ~Status of tail pipe - any deformation may indicate off road use- Good

    ~Status of rear lower cladding & rear gas tank skid plate- scrapes may indicate off road use- Good

    ~Status of undercarriage overall - scrapes, damage, etc... may indicate off road use- Good

    ~Any known repairs?
