Default How much would you pay?

I am looking for a general consensus on how much you guys would pay for a 1990 civic hatch DX 5 speed. The color is red but needs repainted (fading). It has a mini-me swap in it (said to have been rebuilt). the guy just finished a DPFI to MPFI conversion on it and is said to run now. The ecu is one for a non-vtec motor though, so vtec wont engage. The brake rotors probably need turned and it needs new pads along with bleeding. It also needs a new exhaust system and or bolting it all back up (cant remember). It needs an alignment and new tires. The interior is being swapped out to a blue color so it wont have the original gray color anymore. It has no options (all manual) The guys is looking for $1200 without fixing any of the problems on it. What would you pay?

your gonna spend around $300-500 fixing things on it right away, i'd have to somewhat agree with rawrs price range, altho i think he's being a little genours with the 1000

yeah I was a little skeptical when I found out that it needed more work than I thought. Plus I would have to tow it to my house to found out everything that will need to be fixed

Yeah really. I looked at a 89 DX 5 speed stock with 200+k miles and they wanted 2100. They are expensive around here. And if you find a rex under 3 grand your lucky.

The car has a z6 bottom end and a y8 head. all rebuilt. y8 intake mani with b16 throttle body. What it needs is some tranny fluid and some front brakes and an alignment. It has a full exhaust all you need is some exhaust bolts were it bolts to header which is aftermarket ( dont remember what though). HAs an act clutch and d16a6 transmission It runs but no vtec, youll have to go obd1 or get a vtec controller. Chances are you can get the paint buffed back lookin good, but since you said you had already planned on gettin it painted then why complain about the paint. Last time i looked the tires were ok.
