Possible part out 16v cosworth Nebraska

Not sure if this is the correct section - there is a tan 16v cosworth / automatic - got in accident a few weeks ago - ive never owned one but been wanting one forever - anyways saw car today sitting in driveway - hit pretty hard in passenger rear wheel / quarter - i think the front end might of had a little damage as well.

Was going to go to make them an offer on the car to part it out - and that way i can get to know cosworth before i own one..

i might sneak over there here in an hour and take a few pics of it in the driveway - might make a note a leave it on the door if no one is home..

What is TOO much to pay for it ? U pull it around here gives $450 for complete cars - most end up going there - is $1000 too much to offer?

Again - sorry if this should be in a discussion forum elsewhere - please have a MOD move it , if its wrong - but i plan to do all i can to go grab it and part it - i am almost out of vw's to part out..





Stopped by left number. He texted me said new hydro pump cost him $1000. Not sure how many miles. He said runs great mentioned to me it's 1986 only 200 of them.. Imported..

He wants $1500 for it as is.... I'm not sure I can justify that.... But I am going to do some research on parts. For parting it out.

He said 125k estimated. Odometer stopped at 108k. He bought car with 85k 5 years ago...

I might be interested in the hood and the driver's side door.
For $1500, you can make double that if not more on parts.

Does the interior have burlwood?

Yes its burlwood - shipping a door and a hood is so silly expensive..

but I can put em on a pallet and do it at your expense..

Would be something worth discussing perhaps, shipping would have probably been at my expense anyway

Any photos of the burlwood? I'm looking for the center console piece that goes around the three gauges.
