Wow, an RS!

Postby Rettax3 » Sun Jan 11, 2015 3:09 am

Wow, an actual RS! :P Whatever. And look, it has the 'special ordered' five-speed -and I wouldn't mind one of those 170HP 3.1s... :lol:
But, the price is good, and the car IS a five-speed, BS, er, I mean, "RS" or otherwise... Nice GT rims too... :pardon:

1990 chev Beretta RS - $800
1990 Chevrolet Beretta 3.1 V6 5-speed. Good clutch about 70% tires are about 98%.. Not typo.. They have about 2000 miles on them.

The good
the car runs and drives.
has good body with one little Dent on driver side fender

The bad.. :(
the car needs some wiring done and some little things put back together.the ignition part is hanging down.the headliner is also hanging down.this is my fourth project in line. I have 3 other cars in front of it before I start working on it.the price will go up to about $1600 when I'm done with it.it just needs to be put back together. on a 1 to 5 scale of difficulty. I give it a 2.

also, as a side note. I was on Wikipedia and I found out that this car had to be custom ordered with a 5 speed transmission with the 3.1 In it. also it says it has about 160 to 170 horsepower and as of 1990 it was the fastest front wheel drive car, In the solom, and 0-60 was 7.1 sec... that's not too bad. its supposed top speed is 138-142mph. I guess this car can be a little rocket.


I am (temporarily) off the market for another Beretta, but if this one has the rare black interior in good shape, it would be really tempting to me. Oh well, not for me right now. Any takers? :pardon:

Yeah, I think he kind of skimmed the wiki site for the Beretta -actual reading and comprehension is a lost art... No idea where his 170 HP figure came from though. And I just don't get where the "RS" part came in. :unknown:

I think '90 is my favorite year for Berettas -my first Beretta (the blue turbo) is a '90 (and wears an identical set of GT crosslace rims to that car), obviously both of my Indys are '90s, and I still want a black '90 GTZ (because it is the first year for the GTZ, and also because it is the only year GTZ with the first-gen interior, which I slightly prefer). I do have black Z04 body-parts, and black GTZ rims still on my GTU... Hmm :no: Can't do it right now. A friend of mine was talking about maybe flying over from England so we could try to meet up in BC sometime this year, so I was browsing the area (when I really shouldn't :oops: ). Still wondering about the interior of this car too! Yeah, I am addicted, bad. :crazy:
