All, Iím looking for a Conquest. Ideally it would be White, black interior, factory sun roof, manual transmission, highly modified. I would like to find one with a 2JZ conversion.
I still have an Ď86 Starion, but the engine grenaded and it has sat for about 15 years; I want to start with something better.

They pop up every now and then, but you'll have to wait. But, if your car has been down 15 years I'm guessing a few more months doesn't matter to you.

I dont think you read the whole request....I dont see 2JZ swapped Conquests in excellent condition popping up every now and then :)

The 2JZ swap isn't a deal breaker, but it is definitely more desirable. I was hoping that someone from the club may be reaching a point where they have decided to let theirs go to a new home.
The fact that someone is on this forum is a testament that they hold these cars in high regard. I want one that has been taken care of.

I'll make this easier on everyone.  I'll take what he wants WITHOUT the 2jz installed or being highly modified.  :)

I've yet to see a white exterior, black interior Starion/Quest personally.  Most seem to have maroon interiors with a small percentage having the tan/black interiors.  I'm waiting and watching to pickup one that is clean (not even running a requirement) and going on 6 months already.

Good luck!

How far are you willing to travel to get one? TylerQuest has a white one with black or tan interior I believe.

To be completely honest, I'm not sure Mitsu manufactured these cars in white with a black interior.  Almost all the white cars I've ever seen have either had the maroon or tan interior.  I have seen a white car once with black interior, but it was swapped.  Maybe someone can chime in who remembers when these things were on the lots?  Either way, very high percentage were maroon or tan.

If the color combination is the case, I would be after the black interior. My Ď86 has the maroon leather interior and I absolutely hate it. It was the primary reason that I never got it back up and running.
There are a couple Starions for sale on the internet, but they are asking an obscene amount of money for an otherwise well maintained, factory vehicle. I have seen others where the car is on its last leg... I already have one of those.
In regards to distance, Iíd have it shipped from wherever, depending on the car.

NO LONGER LOOKING
I found an 88 Conquest with 56k on it. Itís red and has an automatic transmission, but at least itís a good start. The seller made some claims that I immediately called bs on... like having a rebuilt engine with no mechanical problems. I have already been looking into mods and repairs, poring over this forum.
I am going to video document the whole process and will be looking for input as I go.
