I actually commend the seller for documenting the condition of the car well, and even including some videos of the engine running. More info than you usually see with cars in this condition/price range. In my opinion, it would take a lot of vision, time , and money to take this on as a restoration, but a good parts car for someone with a more solid Kadett. Good luck to the seller.

Yeah, I agree with the being totally transparent on the car, but I can’t say they are being realistic on the price. This is a 300, parts car at best. Maybe hoping to over sale it as ultra rare. It would be too big of an undertaking to get this back into shape. Nothing is impossible, but reality says no. I just recently parted out a 70 Rallye that was in the same shape, I bought for 300, and ended up giving the body away to a race car guy. I restore these for a living, but even I have my limits.

I also think it will end up a lot closer to Keith's number. Not a whole lot of salvageable sheet metal left, unfortunately. I doubt that it spent most of its life in FL with all that rot. Looks more like an east coast/Midwest car.

The car is not running at all. The video shows that it is turning over, and it's firing as long as starter fluid is sprayed down the carb. As soon as the spraying stops, the engine's off.

Honest question for you sir,
how did you end up settling on this 5000$ price tag?

Yep, I guess what he is showing is that the engine is not locked up.
I imagine the whole fuel delivery system is in poor shape, including the tank and carb.

I remember seeing this on Hemmings a while ago, and shaking my head. Lots of rust, more rust than good metal. It would take a metal magician to fix this.
