Sort of, it all comes down to how the car drives.

Not really 3k is a little steep, no matter what work has been done or the condition of it.

No, 3k is too much, someone will buy a clunker for $500 and put $2,000 into it and drive it.

Well I know that they are built with metric parts, but I was reffering to the gauges, sorry for the misconception, was not thinking it was late.

the only guage which would differ would be the speedo, and that depends on which country it was origonally made for, just because it is a euro spec doesnt mean it has a kmph speedo, though I am sure Neil could confirm either way

How's the A/C if there is one?


The pistons are what 9.3-1 or is that US?. It's been awhile since I had to recall that info.

Yeah everything is in metric and the speedo and odometer reads kph only. If someone from the US buys the car I'll have the guages switched over to mph before the car ships. That's something customs may even require now.

it isnt required up here in canada, you are able to run a car with MPH guages,

and the euro engines were 9.3:1 and US were 8.5:1

Yeah I thought 9.3 to 1 sounded right.

And there isn't an AC system on the car.

I just met a guy who shipped an older BMW to the states and customs suggested that he have the MPH cluster put in and he opted not to since it would have cost him nearly a grand to do it and he got away with it. The last thing I want is for the car to be held at the boarder, shipped back to me and then the work take place and then shipped back to the US. << That wouldn't make anyone happy.

I didn't see your post Zuffen, sorry. I don't think I could cram that drive into two and a half days. It would be fun trying tough.

You wouldn't live on E 89th street N, would you? If so, online maps are waaayyy too acurate!

Great looking car,

Worth the money I think, sitting here on the other side of world!

Looks like a lot of care and attention has been lavished on it.

Yeah, I've put as much into the car as it needed and I also replaced what was worn or shabby.

It's ready to go now.

Ahh. Darnit. Saw your comment above about two and a half days, and thought maybe you could come out west

No matter. The new wife already vetoed it. She liked it at first, but then told me I had to get rid of one of the other ones first. D'oh. Too bad. This would be a great addition to the collection.

As for the 5-speed...how did a 77 end up with a 5 speed??? I thought the early models were all 4 speeds? Was there a 5 speed option available that early? Was it unique to the Euro market? Or was a conversion done at some point???

sheesh man, I wish my 924 have a 5 speed. 4th gears is annoying on the interstate. Especially in my 77.
