This kinda depends on your skills
can do basic stuff myself, problem is finding a body repair shop willing to keep that thing encroaching his premises for a year or so!
and how willing you are to get one of these cars.
dont know of any still on the road
I have seen an oval window VW bug hauled out of its watery grave (bottom of a small pond) and be fully restored.
What kind of TE51 is it? If it is the fastback version, I would be more inclined to save it rather than the te51 liftback.
its a ke50 liftback. te's were not imported here.
Transmission still there? auto or stick?
no. last motor it had was a 1n. everything was removed.
As stated above, you should inspect it as best you can and consider how much work and $ it will take to bring back.
est €2-3k. for the bodywork alone!!! of course there's the engine and tranny. And suspension, steering and braking parts which have to be made new. and that's half as much again
