I have limited info on it, the buyer wants nothing less than 4500. Do you guys think it would be a good idea or should I walk, I will provide more info when I know what you guys want to know about it.
That's funnny, the ad says to make offers, worst he'll say is no.

So you make an offer and he's firm on the 4.5k?

I am sure a car as described in the OP post is possible to find but from my experience most s13/s14 have been patched, have 3 different colors, or worse. Its hard to find any 20+ year old car that hasn't been in some kind of an accident/been repaired or painted let alone a RWD 240.. I am sure they are out there but they go for a premium. I say if the thing is straight, no visible frame damage and everything is well aligned its legit, otherwise you'll spend 5 years looking for one and then when you do find one, you'll think its priced too high.

Alright, so I've been in the market constantly posting about these damn 240s. I'm going to check this one out, the hatch is going to be replaced when I buy it. There is a new koyo rad. Clutch is in good condition. I'm probably going to offer 2800, what are your opinions....bare stock 240 for 3k, manual NO super hicas

Also I'm going to put HSD coils on it, spacers, and probably some cheap rims that look decent. I'd rather spend the money on a roll cage

Looks a little shined up to me.. My eyes would be all up and down looking for rust and the possibility of a prior accident. Start low man. You say 2800 he's just gonna say 2900...

And quoting your other post..

4,000 - maybe 4,500. It's just a run of the mill sr20 swap. Cheap parts to get it going and send it on its way. Not worth 5,500 in my eyes - that's upgraded sr20 territory.. Or one fucking clean swap done right with name brand parts.

The first one had two water pumps replaced, the radiator, and the fuel pump. There were two owners him and the person he bought it off of. He moved and brought it with him, so the title is needs to be transferred to PA because it's in Indiana right now. The car was only driven 3 -4 times a year. The radiator I think may have gone bad because A it's 25 years old, and B it had a small front end collision MAYbe he is selling it because he is moving again

Hello,

My long time friend from way back in middle school is trying to sell his 92 S13 hatch but it needs a bit of work. The driver side shock tower has separated and the tower has moved up quite a bit. It dented the hood and broke off the brake master cylinder. Is this car worth my time and money? It's clean otherwise and he says it only has minimal rust. It has been in AZ for a decade but did start life in the midwest.

I have never seen a shock tower do this on a car before so I am a bit worried something major might be going on.

He is giving me a pretty good deal for the car I think.

P10, I would stay away from that one because who knows what other damage that caused.

I have never seen that happen before.

+1 never seen that before. You will probably end up paying a bodyshop to fix the whole thing, which will add up in cost very quickly

RB

Posted this as a new thread but was directed to this one so here goes:

Looking to buy a 240sx as my first real car, and im wondering how many miles is too many miles on an s13. Found one for sale in Albany for $4500 with an rb20det swap with a few mods to it (turbo off the rb25, hks 272 cams, etc.), coilovers, FMIC, aem tru boost, welded diff. The only thing im worried about is the 221k miles on the car. The swap has about 60k on the engine and tranny so im not very worried about that. Im just looking for a good platform to build off of with a decent amount of things done to the car for me to save the money for doing them myself. The cars been in the northeast for its whole life im assuming, and im just wondering if its a good buy or not. I want to know if I should just stay away from it before i start asking for more pictures/information and eventually save myself the 3 hour drive up to Albany. Thanks

Personally I don't think basing an opinion on a car on the mileage is a fair or accurate way to judge the car. They could have driven it for tons of miles but took car of it or they could have driven it rarely but were absolute dipshits and ruined the undercarriage by jacking it up on wrong points as an example. These are things you can't tell based off miles.

If it looks like its something you would like to drive, I would suggest you get more info and request pics, then see the car for yourself. That it the ONLY way to truly be sure of the car. And even then, you might not catch everything.

If your assuming it has spent its whole life in the NE then I would highly recommend that you thoroughly inspect the car for rust. Salted roads wreck cars. Especially older cars.

Just my $0.02.

I agree. A decently clean coupe? On the west coast that'd be up for $5k, like this one.

I'll tell people what my boy told me years ago with a smirk on his face. Don't buy these cars, all they do is break and drain money. Truer words have never been spoken.

If all you know is how to change a tire or battery stay the fuck away.

That's not a bad price for a clean title, no accident kouki, but I'll try to get it for a little cheaper because it's missing a few things. As they say, cash yells the loudest.

So should I be hoping on this 92 Rust free automatic coupe for 1.8k? An older dude approached me asking if I wanted to buy his car that's been sitting in his garage for 3 years. Completely stock with AC with a clean title... Car needs TLC but frame rails are clean and the paint is not too bad, no dents at all. The only things I'm worried about is if the re are a bunch of backfees since the tags were expired since 2013. He told me they non-op'd it so (I'm guessing) there is little to no fees. Also the car has about 200k miles and has been pretty much sitting for 3 years I don't know how the engine is. I started it up and seemed to run fine, there is a tapping from the valve cover which I'm hoping is the upper guide. Any thing I should be worried about guys? Any help is appreciated thanks!

At that price, youre basically paying for a clean shell. If the shell is 100% rust free and no accidents its worth it. Wouldn't take too much to be a solid daily driver.
