What a shame!
25 years of neglect, rather than stored.

Get thee over to the 356 Registry and the email list (356talk).

Also, if you could post the chassis/vin number and the engine number I can pass it on to the Keeper Of The Data for inclusion in the Registry...

Depends on rust.....could be a 3K car to a 12K car.

I picked up a running 58 for 6K.....rust in the doors and fenders.

Based on this recently completed Ebay transaction for a comparable car missing parts, and the fact the owner claims this car to be virtually complete, the price has been set at $15,000.00 OBO.....
