$500 944 Auto
i'm thinking about buying an automatic 944 (don't know the year) for $500, it's missing the air dam... i'm thinking i could just part it out and make some money off the parts here.

how much does this stuff typically go for?...

cookie cutters
quarter panels

ANYTHING ELSE you could imagine from the car...

would it be worth my $500 in parts that i could make money off of?

how hard is it to dispose of a car after it's no longer driveable?

What year and what is wrong with the cars engine?

Does it run? If you don't buy it, I will.

Let me know.

list the VIN...we'll tell you the year

you would be lucky to recover the $500 selling just those body parts unless the 'moonroof' is a genuine glass 'Saratoga' top

Any rolling chassis that is 90% complete is worth $500.

I got my '83 for $500 and have had alot of fun bringing it back from the grave.

I bought a '90 miata a couple months back again for $500 and have had fun bringing it back as well.

I cannot pass up $500 deals. If you pass it up tell me where it is and who and i'll be there in a NY minute.

Know what you mean about $500 944's. Now if I only had the room!

ds475 10-03-2003 06:13 AM

for some reason i kinda think it's an '83, but i can't remember, i went to autozone and this guy was telling me about it. (it's his friends car) not sure about the engine...

FLA944 10-03-2003 07:05 AM

for another $500 944 I would make room.

If it is an '83 - '85.0 (early) just buy it!! less stuff on it to fail, little easier to work on. Just a no brainer, buy it

ANY roller with parts of value is worth $500. If you have the room, buy it.

ds475 10-03-2003 04:03 PM

although, there is a problem... i don't have room for it...

Dang, I have been dying to find an early 944 auto cheap for the wife. Trust me, it's easier then teaching her how drive a standard!:D I have tried, and I have failed! I blame the teacher!:confused:

I'd buy it!:cool: Got plenty-a-room!

ds475 10-03-2003 06:38 PM

it's missing the air dam... and i don't know if it runs...

SoCal Driver 10-03-2003 07:41 PM

Parts is parts.

ds475 10-04-2003 01:48 AM

i just don't have room for it... i think i'm just gonna take what i can, and chunk the rest...

scheistermeiste 10-04-2003 06:23 AM

tell us what u have left over!!!!! i need parts too! i can pay shipping!

thamlin000 10-04-2003 12:18 PM

Any new details? Other than the air dam, what are the problem areas. If this car is in Austin, I am only 1.5 hrs away and might be interested in buying it. Does it run?

I have room.
