Very odd that a RHD car would come from California unless it was imported to the USA. Are you from the UK?

Lots of work to be done if it has sat for 8 yrs. Timing belt, acc. belts, water pump, hoses, tires, fuel system flush etc etc.

If the body and interior are OK then 1 k should be fine as long as you don't mind doing some work on it. Please give us more details and location and pictures if you have them.

Maybe "worth" a $1,000 very easily it is $10,000 away from being a $5,000 car. Driving it in the U S aside from the uniqueness is not much fun. Having a big dog ride "shotgun" gets a few looks. Best use might be to export it to Australia/ N Z where it costs many thousands to convert to RHD.
