I just acquired this car, it was brought in to be repainted and then have the interior restored @5 years ago. Apparently after the paint, the shop owner deviated and the interior never got done, although it is partially dismantled. The front bumper cover is missing and the rear bumper cover has damage to the (new) paint. :eek:

I haven't tried to get it running yet, and am tempted to use the motor elsewhere, but if someone wants a restoration project, they would end up with a 30k mile car, and I am told a clean title (that I have not seen yet).

This is a sad case of a project gone awry.

Oh man, that would be a neat car. Hey, if the engine looks good can you take a few high-ish res pics of it for me and email them? I have need for good shots of an early EURO S engine in its rightful place at the front of a 928.

Doesn't sound like a parts car to me. If it runs after a refresh of the fuel system (assuming it has been sitting for years) then I would replace the interior and front bumper and call it a day. Doesn't *sound* too bad to me. I guess I should wait on the photos before making that determination. :rolleyes:

Looking for an offer :)
I would be intrigued with a trade for a good Euro S motor already out of the car...
