E30-What's it worth?

Hi Guys,

Ok, here's a funny one. A customer of mine has a 1989 325 4 door automatic. The body has some rust, around the wheel wells, on the sunroof, etc. It hasn't been driven in years, so here's the funny part-the engine has about 60, 000 km on it. That's not a typo, if it were newer it would still be under warranty lol!

Now I'm thinking that years of this thing just sitting there (it currently isn't running, although the battery is probably long gone, so I can't tell for sure), means that this car might just fall apart. What do you guys think?

He is thinking of selling, I told him I get some estimates on the price he should look for, any ideas?

I know that everyone will want to see pics, but for starters I'm looking for opinions like "if it has that few km's I wouldn't touch it, it sounds rotten" or "that engine is almost new, I'd buy it for $5000".

Thanks for you advice as always!
