Default 1991 Chevy Tracker

Looking for something for my daughter. Found this one.
I know nothing about them.
It's a 1.6l Auto 2dr convertible.
Appears to have rust on the doors.

Not sure of the mileage, ad says low miles.
What to look for if we go see it?

And what can be done with it mod wise after I .......... I mean SHE gets it?

2" lift is cheap if you reaserch it. should clear a 30" tire. header and exhust, gears, how much you want to spend is the question. i will probly have about $4000-$5000 in my $500 '92 by the time im "done" mine.

rusted out rockers/body mounts/strut mounts.

modding a tracker for performance= the same as arguring on the internet

modding a tracker for offroad performance past 31" tires= expensive and very involved

ohh, and they became "chevy" trackers in '99, before that they were "geo" trackers.

For gears, you could swap out the 3rds with some from a manual trans tracker. Autos have 4.62 and manuals have 5.13 (I think).

like they said rust issues, but there are mods out there calmini is one of they best aftermarket for these things. but again rust is a big issue, check the underbody, strut towers, rear wheelwells, and filler neck (they are the first to go and $160 new)
