Selling (as a whole) a white 1989 canadian e30 M3 which has been in a front accident (which means hood, fenders and nose must be changed, while frame rails can be saved and pulled back if out of spec). My interest is only in the motor. So, the whole car including interior, suspension, tranny and diffs are still there. If you are into an M3 project either for racing, or for transplant, it might be your car. I put the emphasis on project. Asking $4.5k
Car is currently in a sorry state but still salvageable. It is now Historic-eligible for Vintage racing.
The shell itself
- complete car w/o engine - $4500 or $2500 without what is listed below (if sold before).
Car has been hit in the front and a temporary core support has been installed. Underneath, the front frame rails clearly show they have been heated and approximately straightened. On top, the front driver side is very nice, but the area under the fusebox shows a crease, while the driverside, that took most of the kit, shows waves on the fender support. It can be pulled back easily by an experienced frame technician, but I recommend changing both frame rails from an early e30 for a cleaner job. Then the car will really never have signs of a previous shunt. The cowl under the windshield shows a small rust hole. It will need to be changed for the long term. The rest of the shell is nice. Doors are very good with no rust. Trunk's wheel well is very nice too.
The black leather interior is in good condition with no sign of tears. Leather shows a bit of dryness but I have seen worst seats end up looking very nice with only a clean-up, shoe polish dye, and repeat leather food applications. Interior would include both front seats, rear seat and door panels.
If I can't sell the car as a roller, I will part it

Hopefully buyers are from the Montreal region where the car is. I am afraid I won't have time to pack stuff and shipping.
Thanks very much.
