Thinking this project is over my head.
Now for a tacky question...what do you guys think something like is this worth?
The best parts on this car are:
- Euro Headlights
- Euro Bumpers
- Nardi Steering Wheel
Great condition of parts is everything.
Not long ago I purchased sight unseen a 1981 380SL with just Euro Headlights for $1,000. I intended to make it in to a "driver" but there was too much rust and damaged parts. So, I stripped the parts I wanted and got rid of it. It was a great experience learning about these R107s.
I would think your car is worth somewhere around $1,500 to $2,500 as a parts car. Just my opinion.
