Default Found a project

I went and checked it and just got back. Overall its a clean car

Fender flares not sure how much these go for
its a roll BAR not a cage. easily resellable for 300
sittin on tokiko illuminus with tokiko springs atleast 200
99 wheels with lots of tread left 200
the top is in good condition with the glass window 200

full wiring harness
Motor needs a complete rebuild but thats what the one my garage is for
built 5/89 with 192k miles
Brakes are a little stiff prob need to flush the lines
It looked like the steering wheel was dissasembled and there was no airbag in there
the only thing that was weird is that a section of the core support was cut he said it was for the intercooler.
Frame was straight straight straight.
Interior has minor mold
It has no headlights or covers the owner was planning on doing the moss dual halo lights.
No TRANNY,
PPF is disconnected,
comes with
the Diff which is in his garage
Radiator " " " "
stock exhaust " " "
spare head that i can practice P&P =)


i said i wouldnt go higher than 500 and said 500 is good and ill even throw in the car cover lol

what do u guys think. i can easily resell most of that stuff and make my money back. or i could spend a few months re assembling and "hopefully" get it started.

Thoughts... opinions... advice... Thanks

If it has a clean title- buy it, fix it, and either keep it or sell it.

If it has title issues- part it out.

Sounds like a huge waste of time and an even bigger investment then you think.
