No, the interior is SHOT. Paint badly faded, No title, auto trans. Sitting for over ten yrs. Would take thousands of dollars to make it even a driver, and no way it would ever be a rightside-up restoration. Way too far gone. Sorry.

Only posted these parts up because as a guy who can't find the e30 m parts I need, I recognize there are people out there who could use this stuff. Trust me, NO ONE would ever undertake a restoration of this car. But I agree, its always sad to see one get cannibalized.
Parting it out is honestly the most realistic way for this car to live on, in some small way. Financially, I wish I'd never seen it. I'm 800 in red, not to mention all my time and garage space I've wasted on trying to salvage these parts.

lets see some pics of the whole car, you make assumptions about a car that your obviously not familiar with due to the fact you are more interested in the competition's version. getting a title for a car is not that much and there are more then a few of us with the parts to completely fix the car and get it up to it's running glory, interior condition can be replaced with standard 190 parts or even gutted, paint is relative, the only major issues that one would run into is dealing with what rust is on the body. could even easily be made into a scca race car. don't discount us 190 enthusiasts... i'm possibly interested in the entire shell and engine if it's still complete condition

i need my star cleaned too
