Thats not everything either, there is about another $2000.00 in parts from other various venders...... Theres also more parts under my friends international account as well from over the years. I'd say at this point including new $8000 in repairs id say over the past 5 years he has over $10,000 into this car.

Total investment thus far around $8000.00 in the past year, and car has not been driven yet using new parts, car has been and currently still is at my shop.

I realize this is way more then will return so please lets not go there, this has been a car where I have started fixing one thing then another breaks or already is then is found so my friend never expected to invest so much and no at this point it is very deep in the hole money wise.

With that said what would be expected to profit from this car, anotherwards what about price would it sell for?

And better yet is there anyone that is interested in it and making a serious offer?

I have done all I could to have tried to get my friend not to invest in repairing this car however he did anyways and thus needs to be able to sell to recoupe some of the lost funds.

Just a wag here, but assuming it's running ok, but requires paint and body work, plus reupholstery he'd be lucky to get $2k. The paint and body work alone would probably be $4k. Another $700 for upholstery. A dash re-do was about $500, last time I checked several years ago.

I'm afraid this one might be a poster child as an inappropriate restoration if expecting to get anywhere near what was put into it. An '88 Spider just isn't worth that much. Lots of nice Series 3 Spiders out there in pretty good condition for reasonable money.
