Yes, I'd be offering 3.5, maybe 4 for that one. Needs belt immediately - drive away on trailer, don't use the engine once you have handed over the money. For 5k I would be expecting a car that needed work, but that I could confidently drive for a few thousand miles without needing to spend another few grand on. I think that will probably sit there for quite some time at that price - maybe someone will eventually turn up with 5K burning a hole in their pocket, maybe not.
Considering what I paid for my SW, the bodywork of this one is not much better - OK, I needed a door (but they are cheap) and a wing, this one needs two wings (expensive) and a front end respray. The engine looks like it has been on the sea bed for a decade.
Honestly, if i wasn't doing the work myself, I'd be very wary of all 156s. They're old, and you could easily spend eight grand on a 15 year old car that still needs major work. Don't be me wrong, they're great cars, but there is some pretty good machinery out there for that sort of money.
