Eleven VIN numbers away from my car. And it also looks to have similarities in condition and completeness. Which is to say, this one looks like a great project! :D

makes a lot of sense if you have the luxury of being able to put sweat equity into it and self-perform body work / interior work / mechanical work ... or at least 2 of the 3 ... as well as a huge pile of spare trim parts.

And still a pair of deep pockets.

For the self-performers, it's really not so much the money as it is the time. There's a lot of time associated with making the chassis right again. But in this case, also the cost to source e the rest of the interior. It's a double whammy.
But hey, if it were closer... :D

unless its a 20k car masquerading as a 40k car ... where it will need 50k worth of work (20k of hidden rust remediation)

Ahhh the masquerading cars....gotta love them!.....:)

This coupe seems a long way from anything, maybe a conversion, resto-mod, or race car....and I would talk down price just a bit.

You have that much in parts and vin # but as soon as you touch any of the pieces there will be expenses to deal with effectively making them lose value....

My .02 cents

Top of the fenders/ shock towers look good from here. I wouldn't be concerned with patching the floors/ rockers as they don't look bad. I'd do a custom dash/gauges & interior. Body is straight w/ a sunroof. Car is what 85% complete I'd say. I don't wanna see any E9's leave the road anymore than you guys so I'd restore the outside & resto-mod the inside.

I'll admit that I'm slightly envious - there's very little for sale at all in the UK, and nothing restorable at that kind of money
