I'd buy it for 200 and figure out the engine problems....

I'd be suprised if that engines shot....I got 220K very abused miles on my 95....


But if you do buy it....we'll have to talk about some parts that I need off that motor if they're good

hell, for $200, I'd find a truck and trailer and purchase it myself.

I know one guy is looking for the EGR tube from a 94. If the SC is good, you can get $75-200 depending on how good.

Ask why the motor is no good. Windowed block, not good. Just doesn't run right, fixable. Should be something fairly easy. The reason I would buy it is I have two long block sitting at my house I could replace the motor with.

Your choice on whether you do it. You should be able to make your money back parting simple stuff and might make a little money on it. Don't expect to turn a huge profit, but if you have a place to store it for a month then I'd say go for it. I can give you a list of parts to pull and what I have gotten for them and that are easy to pull. Then after a month, just sell the rest to the junkyard.

If that motor has spun bearings, he would be better off sourcing another short block. OR take the motor out of his current car...that would all depend on how the body and interior of the 200.00 car is.

Then again, for 200.00 you are getting not only a decent body BUT also getting a rebuilt HD tranny. Storage units that will hold a car goes for 140ish/month over here, and 50ish/month for closet size.
