    whats this worth?

    I found this little rust bucket on craigslist and Im interested in purchasing the car. The owner is asking $2k for it as it sits. its not in running condition (he thinks fuel issue) and is deeply plagued with rust. my question is what is something like this worth and is it too far gone? I am not rich by any means but I want something different and fun just not sure if this is worth trouble but for the right price it might be. just out to get opinions and some advice. what would you guys pay for something like this? thanks to everyone in advance!!

    heres pics of the car

    I think that's the ONLY part of the car that's intact! That price is purely off the fact that it's RHD, and it's still over priced! That is some bad rust, I think if you had the body cleaned/blasted there'd be a lot more body loss then it even looks. The scary thing is the photo album is dated Dec, 2009... So there's even almost a year and a half more rust!

    2K$ car like this costs in our country... Where 15 years old Grand Cherokee costs 10K$ :lol: I think in USA it's real price 500-700$, like matt wrote.

    sad to see that car was brought over here to die sitting outside...such a shame..that and him wanting 2k for a car thats going to need $$$$ of repair/or loads of work yourself is kinda far fetched. i also agree with 500-700

    yea unfortunately I think its too far gone for me and would really need a FULL restoration. not even sure if it would be worth the 500-700 in parts

    To me, it'd be worth $1000-1500 at least, but I wouldn't fix it. I'd find a 2-seater S30 shell in good shape and swap all these bits on to it. :tu:

    im still kinda thinking about it and he did drop the price I would just hate pulling apart a car like that to put into another, but If I could find a nice 2 seater that would definitely be an option. if anyone is interested and thinks they could save this one heres a link!
