Default civic HB for sale: good deal or no?

There's a guy around me selling a white 92 civic hatch back... with a b16b swap and gsr tranny and cf hood... I don't know how many miles on the b16 motor but he wants 5000 for it.... other than the swap it self I think the car is pretty much stock. He also has a nitrous set-up installed. The chassis it self has about 130k on it. Just wanted to know what you guys think... I personally think it's a little bit too much for a car like that since the only mod is the motor swap and cf hood. Of course I'm not exactly too sure how much a b16b is...

The exterior and interior is in pretty good condition..

Sounds like a good deal to me if everything is in the right condition. CTR B16b swaps tend to cost around $3700 and up...Find out more information...When was the motor swapped, how long was nitrous used for, reason for sale, etc...

You can buy one with a gsr motor for 5k. Look around some more.

**Edit: sorry my fault... I just called him and asked a bunch of questions and verified that the motor it-self has about 55k on it... and it is a b16a, <U>not </U>a b16b ctr motor. He's selling it because he's saving up for a new car... I think the guy's wanting to buy a STi or Evo.

Sorry for the mix up.... I'll keep looking around... I would also like to find at least b18c1 swapped hb, or just a stock one in good condition for a cheap price so I can do the swap my self.. but the only reason I'm considering it is because the car was garaged and well taking care of and it's very hard to find a hb like this especially locally. So, 5k for a b16a.... I don't know.....

Its a pretty good deal, but do you trust that the guy didnt treat it like sh*t? Make sure before you buy, if you're not sure then look somemore

If you would have actually read the replies instead of blindly answering his first post, you would have seen it's a b16a, not b16b.

the thing about buying other people's projects is that u dunno wat the hell is wrong w/ it ... cmon u know their not gna tell u all the things thats wrong w/ it . I mean something that they think is a small problem that they think wont affect anything later could become a big problem for u and cost $$$.... just something to think about when buying other people's projects

What kind of condition is the body in? What about the interior? Also, is it a blue interior or a black interior? What exact trim level is it?

These are all questions that can help determine a good asking price. I'd be all over a white hatch with a black interior that's in good outside/inside condition with a swap for $5000. In fact if you don't go for it, please give me a contact number so that I can look at the car.

this is EXACTLY why buying swaps that are already performed to a hatch is a bad idea. i made the mistake of buying a hatch with a b16a already in it. i thought it was a steal and that it was a badass car, turns out that the motor he said was "rebuilt", ended up being some half-***, piece of **** rebuild and ended up costing me alot of money to fix (detonation). of course its all good now, cuz i just ended up building the **** out of my b16, but i couldve saved alot of money.

Just make sure the b16b is in good running condition, don't let the 6b and nitrous be the bling reason why you want it.
