    I k oe that it cost about $900 to get to San Diego and then you would have to get a trucking quote from there to your location. Shipping to Europe is roughly $3500 last time I did that. Leak down numbers were 2-3% last time it was done and the car hasn’t driven 1000 miles since then so everything should still be tight. The car has no major leaks but on occasion will drip oil very minimally. A little drop here and there

  • Reline7500 5 days, 2 hoursago

    Great looking car. Nice job on the paint. Do you have any idea how much it costs to transport the car from Hawaii to the Mainland east coast Area ? Also, do you have any leakdown test results for the car? Any oil leaks?

  • TurboMaui 5 days, 22 hoursago

  • Kanakalaki (seller) 1 weekago

    Hopefully it goes better this time around. The car has brought me a lot of joy. Buyer won’t be disappointed. If anyone has any additional questions I’ll try my best to answer as quickly as possible.

  • Kanakalaki (seller) 1 weekago
