A Geo Tracker isn’t a compact crossover from the 90s that draws a great deal of notice. That title would probably go to the Hummer H1, but the a single not long ago sold on Automobiles and Bids, a 1996 model, is quite one of a kind even if its cutesy exterior says or else. Beneath the immaculate exterior and brilliant red paint is a potent V6 from a fifth-era Chevy Camaro. Which is quite a great deal of electricity for the crossover.
New, the Tracker came with a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder producing just 96 horsepower (seventy two kilowatts) in 1996. Having said that, the Tracker now has the chunky three.6-liter V6 squeezed among the fenders. The motor designed 323 hp (240 kW) and 278 pound-feet (376 Newton-meters) of torque, and that’s a significant improve for the small crossover, while it could be producing a little bit extra. The car capabilities a cold air consumption, a twin-exhaust technique with cat-delete, and higher-move mufflers.
Power routes to the rear wheels by the Camaro’s six-speed automatic gearbox and a 4.30 rear differentials, while there are other upgrades. The Tracker capabilities a custom made radiator, LED headlights, a custom made instrument panel insert, a touchscreen head device, 17-inch Dodge Ram wheels, and extra. Common capabilities involve hand-crank home windows, fabric upholstery, and a handbook-folding smooth best. A respray in Porsche’s Guards Crimson paint actually can make it pop, hiding any of the blemishes you’d expect to see on a twenty five-year-outdated car.
The auction shut these days, and the Tracker sold for a hearty $14,250. At 1st look, the modified Tracker seems like any other very well-retained Tracker, but the aftermarket wheels and chunkier tires suggest this is a thing a little bit extra one of a kind. It may well look a little bit preposterous to things such a significant motor within such a tiny vehicle – there wasn’t place for the air conditioner and the V6 motor – but it is a very well-accomplished make that we expect would be a blast to push.
