Ok I bought my 84 mk2 with a 6MGE, Center force Dual Friction Clutch Kit, toysport intake and DT Headers all installed by Toysport. It had a bad head and leaked oil like hell. After Opening the Head I notice what a horrible job Toysport did in this install :evil:. I have since then Fixed the head, got it port and polished, and Gotten a 2.5" piping on it. Now the car had a little bit of rust but I did a temporary fix on it. Some people say I'm crazy cuz while I had the engine out I cleaned it out the engine bay with a toothbrush. At first I bought this car to fix it and sell it to go with a 7M on my black mk2, but now I want to keep it. I keep having people asking me how much I would sell my car to them. I keep telling every one I want to keep it. But after having a lot of people asking for how much I would sell it to them it reminds me of my original intentions :( .

How much would you guys say a White 84 Mk2 with I/H/E, upgraded clutch, new bushings and some Blue Tokico Struts and Shocks would cost? The car has 115K miles on the chasis.

Nice looking car from the pics. You are apparently one of those kind of "car guys" that other "car guys" like to buy used cars from because its already spotless and everything's been done quality. The 6m is a definate plus. If the paint is still glossy and the interior completely intact and clean and everything works, I'd say you have a car worth somewhere around $4,500. Obviously if there are cosmetic flaws beyond the errant door ding or chewed leather steering wrap then you would have to deduct appropriately.

Like you, I'm going to be in the same boat when I finish the bluepra in about a year. Its getting paint, upholstery, bottom end rebuild and possibly a few go-fast goodies. I know I probably won't be able to get all my money back out of the project but we "car guys" really only do it for fun anyway, right? I might drive the bluepra for a year after its done to "enjoy" my money's worth, but at some point you just gotta sell it so you can move on to the next project. BTDT. Good luck whatever you decide.
