I have a buddy who has a 91 318 ic for sale...

it is hit in the rear end...trunk,bumper,rebar,and valance are gone. There is also some frame damage.

The car is all original with 138k km's.
Full tan interior in prefect condition...BRAND NEW id say
Rest of the body is in good shape with almost no rust.
The convertible top is also in very good condition besides a tear in the rear plastic.

It is 5 speed and it starts and runs like a charm.

How much is it worth?He asked me to give him an offer. The damage is about $1500 dollars estimate.

i was thinking of getting it for a parts car as my cabi needs alot of parts.

Most of the mechanical parts you need likely can come from any E30. The cabby specific parts are interior seats/panels, doors and fenders, roof, trunk panels, and trunk lid (only if you want the third brake light. The rest is all the same as any E30.

Some rough ideas on prices (I may be off here and there)

Truly mint cabby interior ~ $400-$500
Rust Free Doors ~ $75 ea
Rust Free Fenders ~ $100 ea
Power Top Frame / Motor ~ $250
Perfect Roof ~ $350

For me - wouldn't pay more than $800 for it, but that's me. If you need multiple items on the list it may be worth more to you.

the verts have a 4.27 diff, which are hard to find, harder if its an lsd, so good idea to grab it for a parts car just for the diff!!!
