We have for sale a nice E30 drop top with GREAT potential! It was a theft recovery and missing some parts (rear seats, muffler, stereo and bumpers). The body is in excellent shape, 98% rust free (small spot on rear arche). The soft top is almost brand new! Right now the car is a 318ic 5 spd, but i am willing to sell as rolling shell, ready for engine swap (can supply M30 or M52 if needed). This is a very good base for a solid project (not rusty/bondo shell), or just fix and drive. Asking $2500 in present state, with motor/rims etc...obo without. Make some offers, but no low ballers...we all know how hard it is to find rust free E30's!

I think it might be an insurance scam, because no locks or windows are broken, the steering wheel was removed (need key for that on E30's) and they had a LOT of time to take things out...

That's better for whoever ends up buying it, replace a couple of things, slap some bumpers on and you're set.

No, for sure i wont be parting it out! It needs very litle, so it would be a shame to destroy it! I already have most of the parts, so if it doesnt sell, i will put it all together for the summer...

Could you please put up a complete list of what is missing? I know you've mentioned a bunch of things already, but what about mirrors? which switches? etc., I'd just like to see how much money everything would add up to and how hard it is to put the pieces back together.

Like i said before, this is a PROJECT, if mirrors and switches are a big factor, you are not ready for an E30 project. I didnt put them on the list because i have them, included in the asking price. Car needs work, should be checked in preson, then we can talk about all the details...

Yes, i know, and 99% of the E30's left are "hobby" vehicles...not something you drive your kids to school in...They are NOT for everyone...You must love them and be ready to deal with the problems that come with 20 year old cars. The main reason of buying a "project car" is to work on it yourself, wich most E30 guys love. *wave*

I saw it a while back and its ok, but a tad on the high side, sorry. Doors have rust, rockers have rust, trunk lid has rust ( usually in the seams), there is a hole in the driver's rocker, and i don t even want to know how it looks under the carpets. It was also resprayed at one point, badly at that. Its a nice project, but, definately not for me.

Get your facts right! The "rocker" you are talking about is the FENDER! and its not a HOLE, it was a dent that was fixed with filler, that now has fallen off. A feder is not a part of the unibody, it can be replaced. Under the carpet will be great, as we checked the car on the hoiste, and there is no structural rust. Again, better then 90% of the cars that are on here...

If you are looking for a showroom, 100% rust free California car, drop top for $2k, then thats not it...
