I was wondering how much do you think a TII that needs new engine and some body work or something would cost?

That depends. You can pick one up for a few hundred with a pretty good body. I paid $2,500 for mine. '89 TII with no rust. It was a little steep but I was looking for a while and became impatient. If you have time or luck you'll find a great deal eventually. Look at 1revvin7's black TII or camel's. Bought for dirt cheap!

2500 most likely, 1800 if you're lucky.

I sold mine for $1650 with a good engine, upgraded turbo, full exhaust, custom paint, and so on. It needed quite a bit of body work, though.

I'd say, here in the northwest, if you can find a rust free, straight frame, good interior, minor body work, blown engine TII (assuming the engine is the only weak mechanical thing), you should pay about 600-1000 for series 4 (86-88) and 1200-2000 for series 5 (89-91). That's around the going rate or at least what people end up taking around here.



Of course, sometimes you'll find a good deal or a stubborn seller and you could take a grand on either side of those estimates. Just be patient and bid low

It's completely dependent on the seller at that point because there are far to many variables to make a reasonable guess.



For instance, I purchased a straight 1st gen body with a large amount of excellent parts, stock and aftermarket, for $300. I've also been approached with a 2nd gen rolling race chassis that the guy wanted $3000 for. Shop around then ask specifically what a car is worth, or just offer what it's worth to you and hope for the best.
