Well i would say that £1500 ish for a new engine is way more than the car is worth, its got no nice bits on it that people would want to buy if you broke it so it looking like a scrapper!
Shame really as six months ago you'd have got £100 for it from the scrap man.

I would stay well away. If it was a top spec car, then it might be worth doing up if you paid a hundred or less.
As Rockhopper says, it will be 1500 for an engine. Then probably 4 new tyres, they are bound to be out of shape and perishing, does the gearbox work ok? Brakes will need doing, possibly new calipers, discs, pads. Suspension joints, steering rack, exhaust, all could be in bad shape, and with the dented body too?
If you get it for free, it could be a good project over the summer if you can save the engine, but it will cost a lot in time and money to get presentable.

I wouldn't pay a penny more than £500 for it ... goodness only knows how much it will cost to repair! Steer clear!

I wouldnt bother. I sold my 156 1.8TS for only £750 - even if you only paid £100 for it and got it fixed up it would bring you up to about that or more and then you dont know what else is wrong with it.

Re: whats it worth 156 1.8ts

I wouldn't bother either.

You could probably get a secondhand engine for £400 but even then you are left with a basic model which won't be worth more then £750 in todays market, and thats providing nothing else is wrong.

You could break it, but as its the basic model there will be no alloys or leather etc to sell. Even stuff like gearboxes are quite plentiful and cheap already.
