VEHICLE STORY

Bought this last year from a buddy locally. Came with coilovers, nice front seats, a turbo strapped to the side of the engine and a few other things. I then proceeded to take a bunch of stuff out.

Discuss this build

[]Harald Heldt

It does the job for sure!

[]Alex Yonehara

Beautiful car and it's got one of my all time favorite wheels

[]Vic S.

I love your ride! Beautiful.

[]Christine Brynn

Loving that classic blue and gold! What are you planning for the interior? :o...

[]Harald Heldt

Thanks!

The interior is going to stay mostly stock. I love the late model tweed, So I'm going to have a pair of Recaro LSDs rebuilt and refinished in something that will look and feel as close to factory as possible...sort of like an OEM+ look. That said I do love plaid, and I'm dabating with myself whether do inserts in a color matching plaid pattern or not, along with the headliner.

Other than that, depending on the driving position of the new seats I may go with a Momo Mod. 07 or Prototipo steering wheel!

[]Ryan Brenner

That thing must handle great! How often do you take it to the track?

[]Harald Heldt

Never ;) It's strictly a backroad car...In all seriousness there are a couple trackdays here in the spring and during the summer. I haven't taken it to the drag strip since I did a bunch of things to it. Planning on bumping boost a bit and seeing how she does...definitely hoping for a bit over the 230ish whp it has now!

[]Christine Brynn

Sweeet :)

[]Harald Heldt

I'd love to, Christine! Will get it filled out ASAP.

[]Christine Brynn

Hey, awesome ride! Would love to feature you on the front page of Wheelwell if you'd be down to share more of your story :) Please fill this out if you get a chance! goo.gl/forms/UWm0RXFBvc

[]Harald Heldt

Hey! That's actually my in-laws' house. I do leave it parked there every once in a while though :o)

[]Emmet White

Hey dude! I live right down the block from you. I am on hassalo and 39th. I always see your 242 on the way to school. Its beautiful!

[]Jorge Azcoitia

Really interesting and rare ride. Kudos for keeping it so clean! (Y)

[]Ogre Hikes

Nice, you should write out a few more details in the story, it's a really interesting piece of history

[]Harald Heldt

Deluxe. Meant it had no standard equipment whatsoever other than a heater, slushbox, and sunroof. Two of those were options. Also came with an anemic 100 hp engine and mechanical fuel injection. The anemic engine turns out to have a forged crank and pistons, and mains as big as an LS1's. This means that lots of boost can be crammed in 'em.

[]Ogre Hikes

so is the DL a diesel?

[]Harald Heldt

Heh. This thing bogging hard on launch and with no tuning managed to trap at 95 mph on the 1/4 mile last weekend. Expecting low 13s by the end of summer!

[]Ogre Hikes

i dont think i've ever seen a 2-door 240. This is what those poor bastards that got their mom's hand-me-down mustard yellow squishy brick 240s always dreamed of, 200hp, omg

See whose at the top of the Wheelwell 242 Leaderboard
