I am selling for this 1975 2.0 for a client. Sad story this is. It was restored (decent amateur) 10 years ago. Family issues put the car outside in the weather for 8 years sad.gif. It runs and drives. FI is all there. AAR is stuck and I haven't had time to disassemble and rebuild so it's bypassed. Front brakes just rebuilt and rears are working as they should. Interior is pretty good and seems relatively complete excluding any incorrect parts. Okay now for the ugly. The following needs significant metal work: floor pan is soft 24 inches off the firewall, firewall is rotted from the floor pan seam upward 2-3 inches, hell hole was semi fixed at some point but needs help, pass rocker is on trouble in the rear wheel well and as can be seen the drivers front fender has seen better days. Mid point forward is pretty darn good. This is a typical New England 914. Client is asking $8500 but is open to all reasonable offers. I sold a non-running squirrel infested 2.0 devoid of an interior for $2200 this past March so I figure the price isn't insane but...

Bumpster. If anyone cares to provide a price that would actually result in a sale my client could use some direction.

I know we're not supposed to comment on sales, but since the seller has asked for advice...

I'm by no means an expert, but that rust is bad. If you want any real money for it, your best bet is likely to part it out.

Otherwise, you'll have to sell it for almost nothing, then the next person will part it out anyway.

Hopefully I'm wrong, it would be great to see it saved!
