There is absolutely no way of telling if it is a good deal or trash. Items to find out about
1. Rust situation
2. Leaks - front and rear windshields are likely to leak if gaskets have not been replaced recently and the cost for replacing the gaskets isn't cheap. The result can be rust in the trunk and other more difficult places.
3. Heater blower - make sure it works
4. AC Blower - make sure it works also THERE ARE TWO BLOWERS and the heater is a pain to fix. Big pain.
I paid I think $4300 for my coupe a year or two ago and it's a pretty nice one but could use new paint and needs to have the A/C put back into it. But it's rust-free, red with parchment interior, and LOTS of the suspension had been rebuilt/replaced. Drives like a dream.
