I can confirm that I was contacted about the car last week, and through my dealings with the Dean/Dave combo, I was advised that Martin Grigg did the compliance on the car. A blue Lancer coupe was found at a wrecker, and the VIN plate was purchased for that car. The Evo 2 RS was separated in Japan (the driveline was pulled off the chassis), and the car was sent to Australia in two separate shipments per the laws at the time. Once both shipments arrived in Australia, Martin Grigg bolted it all back together. Perhaps the owner had the wool pulled over his eyes and was unaware that the driveline was actually from a different (non RS) car, hence the air-con inclusion. Whatever the case, it's definitely a re-birth and certainly not eligible for rego in NSW.

You could option an RS with aircon. If someone who has access to the CAPS system has time, they could type in the original VIN and see what it says about the car.

See screenshot. Confirms RS with option code 1UO which is Cold Zone.

I do.
Inlet manifold was mine.
I can confirm some details are correct. Can't confirm all.

Travis, myself, Jayrome have had some input to the original build.

Looks pretty tidy. Is it a Vic rebuild rego car?

 

Other than the broken gearbox, looks to have had a lot of money spent on it.

It was self built from what I know.
Sony would expect it to be of high quality standards. The guy who built it was pretty anal.

OK. Good to know. 

 

But definitely a Vic Rebuild VIN?

Unfortunately I don't have the link (not on Facebook), but does anyone know about a green Evo 1 (with Evo 3 drivetrain and interior) for sale in Victoria?

Is this owned by a member on here?

Yeah that's Alan's Evo1.

 

He's on here every now and then but not that frequently.

Contact the owner would be my suggestion.

its a personal import, so it's registrable in NSW

I was interested in it, would have bought it but he wasn't forthcoming with information (one word replies)...

My mate has contacted him and had the same response. I guess he's not that interested in selling.
