I considered that but my best path is to part it out and make other people happy!
Around here, at least, they're in moderate demand.
bring $4,000 - here's one that's been for sale for well over a month - 1996 Suzuki X-90
There's no title
. That can be remedied but at a cost of around $400 by the time all is said and done.
Engine has needs
. Head gasket went out - not sure what else went with it. It was half torn down by the previous owner who walked away from it.
The interior is...ok
. Not great - not terrible
is as you see it - not nice
are not road worthy
Looks like the Cat
has been removed.
On the upside the body is straight and it's complete.
So yes - they can bring $4,000, but in this condition - running - they bring right around $1,500. To bring it up to a $4,000 level vehicle it would cost a minimum of $2,500 and that's with a "Maaco" level respray. Add to that the cost of labor - even mine at 50 cents per hour - and the price I paid originally. If it were my labor of love it'd be okay - a break even anyway - but it's not.
I'm open to selling it complete - as is - but it'd only bring a fraction of what it will bring as parts. I've had inquiry from people who want to combine it with their rusted out X-90, but buying it - shipping it - and melding it with their parts has them to a point where they can buy a really nice one and be done with it.
