Came across an ITR for sale locally for $4850 (lowest the seller would go) but it's in pretty rough shape

Cons:

*Tranny will likely need replacing. Grinds into 3rd and there's so much play in the transmission you can't tell if you're in gear or neutral
*Some rust starting to show on the body in the door jam areas and in the rear qp
*Rebuilt title from front end collision previously
*Car is sweating/leaking oil from the bottom of the block
*Current owner is the kind of driver that continuously revs the car at a stoplight and does pulls all night and day

Price of the car is $4850USD, body has 150000miles but 2000miles on a rebuilt motor. Tranny matches mileage of the body

Personally I wouldn't be afraid of anything but the rust. Rust kills a lot of cars for me. Once it has made its way to the quarter panels, who knows what underneath entails. All of that aside I would look underneath it and ask yourself how much work you want to do. I would also inspect the repair of the front end and see if you will need to re-do anything on that end of the car. Sounds like you could make most your money back if not more if you part it out, if you decide that it will be more work than you are looking for! Keep us posted!
