Few bothered as the early cars reportedly back then burned through clutches like crazy. Also many folks don't like the "Grand Prix pattern" where 1st is a dog leg down and to the left below reverse (same in older Ferraris and Lamborghinis).
Come on guys. . Read the fine print, that 928s had only 13,000 miles on it.
I'm just curious as to whether it was stored indoors or outdoors. With the extent of the word "restoration" being dependant on that. A long sit means bad fuel. Fuel pump is no drama to hook up. . . Just a thought provoker. .
928s are pricey cars to maintain. My dad had an 86 928S when they were still new back in the 80s. It was a tremendous GT car that was entertaining to drive considering its size and weight. I was a teenager at the time and getting to drive it a few times was an amazing experience. The engineering and interior layout was was very impressive back in the day. Still with its weight and being an auto he only kept it a year...so it was still under warranty if anything happened (but nothing did).
However, as values plummeted years ago, many became deferred maintenance cars. Parts are very expensive, remember back in 1983 it was around $47K...which today is like the equivalent of spending $115,000. A friend of mine sold his 5spd 1990 928GT that was in great condition, low miles, full service records and maintained to a very high standard by guy who today only works on 928s, and he said he even when nothing was wrong with the car average maintenance ran him $2-3K per year. I also spoke with a guy who has worked on 928s, and he said other than a handful that have been really well maintained (most probably due to deferred maintenance, or guys who didn't know what they were doing), require some serious expenditures to sort and even after than plan on $2K-3K a year in maintenance. Maybe a handy guy could do their own maintenance and stuff on a 924/944...but 928s are pretty complicated and would present a very steep learning curve.
With no pix and a price of $6K, that car is probably a disaster. Interest in 928s has gotten stronger in the last 3-5 years and a car with that mileage, if it were well maintained and in nice condition would sell for several times that amount.
Wow, that was one hell of an accident. Glad to hear you survived it and hopefully no serious injuries!!! Any accident you can walk away from is a "Good one," if there is such a thing.
