Default PA: 02 New Motor 5 Speed

Bought this car with bad motor, with intentions of fixing and keeping. Well I fixed it but the wife doesn't like it. I've rebuilt a handful of motors, this being one of them. I have receipts for everything.

Whats been done:
Had block tested at DLK in russellton, PA for cracks and hone
Replaced cylinder head from Heads only in Texas
Master rebuild kit
-New Pistons and rings
-New Rod Bearings
-New Main Bearings
-Engine Gasket kit
New Chrysler Rod bolts
2 New Chrysler Lifters
New Gates timing kit, belt, water pump, and tensioners
New NGK iridium spark plus and wires
New thermostat, balance shaft tensioner, and pcv valve
Replaced both lower control arms
Replaced swaybar bushings and endlinks
New power steering rack with tie rod ends
Alignment done at Chrysler
A/C recharged and blowing very cold.
All Tires are almost new, they are Continental DWS
Exhaust from cat back is new.
Brakes a great, recently replaced by previous owner.
New radiator fan motor
Replaced all 3 motor mounts

When building this thing I had full intentions of keeping it for a long time, so i replaced everything that needed it so I didn't have to work on it for awhile. During the rebuild I've taken a fair amount of pictures and wrote down most of the clearances I checked. I have 3 different torque wrenches and the factory service manual, every bolt was tightened to factory spec. I did an oil change right after startup and at 1000 miles to mobile 1 and bosch filter. The car had 80k on it when i got it, i've put 5k miles on it since the rebuild. It runs great, I know this motor will last a very long time.

When i had the subframe out it had a small bit of rust, so i spent a good amount of time cleaning it up and repainting it with 2 coats of rustolum primer and 2 coats of rustolum black.

The body doesn't have any rust, but the previous owner lived in the city and this car has a few bumps and bruises, its not been wrecked but the driver fender has a decent dent in it. you can see it in the picture. and a few other scratches.

Serious people will call Brian at 503-268-1357 (I lived in oregon, and i like my number)
May trade for a small car with 30mpg or better.
