Default Parting Out 1985 944

I am parting out a 1985 944 with @87,000 miles. I would consider selling the whole car. I have not verified the engine condition but will post more info/details soon. I might deliver of not too far. Taking offers.

Im in Orange,Texas. I am evaluating engine and drive train at this time to decide if I want to restore as a project and keep it or sell. Its a low mileage 1985 1/2 944. Body is good and most of interior seems ok except carpet. Car had a few inches of water get inside causing it to be flood damage totaled. Water line is just below top of rocker panel. Seems a shame to part out a low mileage clean 944. Of course the Texas title is branded as salvage/flood but repairable version. More pics and info soon.

It appears to be in really good shape. I'd restore it and drive it if I were you. That small amount of water shoudn't have hurt anything major. Have you had it up on a lift and examined it for damage yet? Will it start?

Also, in reference to your front bumper question in another thread, I think that you may have a european front bumper on that car.

The more I look this car over the less I'm inclined to strip it send it to the bone yard. It seems it was a really nice fairly low mileage 1985.5. The engine is not locked up and the transaxle only had a little water in it. Pulled starter today and will have it rebuilt. Then hopefully compression testing, etc. and it should be a running driving project for someone. Looks like most of the interior is there less carpet of course. The label in trunk is:
