87 Turbo Coupe Value

I have my eye on an 87 Turbo Coupe with 57k and auto tranny. Color is Burgandy with the grey interior. Unfortunately it has a tremendous amount of rust, to the point that most of the rear quarter is rusted away, one gas tank strap is rusted thru and just hanging, the outer door skins are shot as they have separated at the bottom seam due to rust. Basically i think the body is totally shot. The motor seems to run good and the tranny shifts fine. The interior has a few small issues, hood pull lever broke away from it's mount, door panel issues, and a couple burn marks on the rear seat. Everything seems to work as it should. The front cover, lights, and hood are in good shape. Wheels have fading/chipping in the finish.

Anyway, at this point i think it is just a parts car. I know it's hard to put a value on something that you have not seen, but i am wondering what you guys think and how much it should bring.

I am into SuperCoupes and have not owned a Turbo Coupe in 14 years.

Any input is appreciated.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Thanks,
Randall

A hundred or so. Not too much. Auto's in decent shape don't go for too much.

Turbo Coupe

Hey, Thanks for the reply. He wants alot more than that. It did seem to run good and shift well, but i think the body is not worth fixing, it is really rusty.

It would be good to have for the motor.

Any other input?

Thanks,
Randall

No , keep looking , dont get into a rust bucket car , no matter what the price is , you will have so much into it , just trying to fix the rust . Best to look at a west coast car and have it shipped. That is the best way to go , trust me , I have done it a few times . May pay alittle more but is way worth it in the long run . .....................DW

I just always liked the turbo cars. I really want a 85-86 Cougar XR-7 with the 2.3 turbo.

I have not had the chance to check out that Cougar yet. Maybe this weekend.

Hi, I am on the same page as far as trying to fix the rust buckets. I just figured there is a good motor and interior there to play with, if i could get it cheap enough and find another Turbo Coupe that had a good body and needed drivetrain parts.
This guy wants way more than a hundred and i think it is not worth it, so he can keep it.

Thanks for the input.

Nope. Not sure where the 11 comes from.
