GAH! I hate that wing they put on it.

Also they displayed a lot of pics of the car but nothing with close-ups of the suspension bits or the engine compartment. And none of the interior.

WoW! A bargain for an 89' rolling (dragging) chassis without even a binnacle or steering wheel!!

Yea, it would take a special buyer to purchase what's left of an 89 for $7K+. A close to complete SE went for $13K on eBay recently. This car is at least $20K and a lot of pain from running.

They really needed to modify the mounting for the side mirrors instead of just sticking them on crooked.

I have seen the car up close. Be aware that the forward crossbeam (in front of the sump) has been removed from the frame - I assume to fit a larger motor. Also both the hatch and the front have been altered - if you look closely at the pictures you can see the changes. As far as body parts the doors and bonnet are stock. The floor under the driver's seat has been removed. There were a variety of interior parts piled in the car when I saw it but do not know what is there and what is not. The interior was extremely dirty, so it was not possible to assess the condition of the various interior pieces. It does not have stock seats. It has no brakes and the rear hubs, if I recall, are missing. The front hubs were there but no brakes. Overall, in extremely rough shape. Caveat emptor.

Sounds like about $50 of value left in that mess.
