Why is it only $44k? What am I missing? Says rebuilt...just how "rebuilt" we talking?

1993 RS America

Oh also, dibs.

Looks like it's a salvage/rebuilt title.

I overheard some talk about the car, and might be able to put you in touch with someone who can tell you something about it.

It has been hit very hard in the front, on its roof rebuilt and rebuilt again. The second rebuild was by a very good shop and supposedly the car checkedout well but that was several years ago. I would want a through PPI including alignment and compression at a minimum. Would also insist on a test drive.

What are the braided hoses in the trunk for? Oil cooling being routed through there I guess?

I thought it looked quite interesting as well.

As far as the front bumper goes, I am thinking it's from a standard 964 that had the headlight washer option based on what look like holes on each side in front of the headlights. That wasn't an option on the RSA.

If I had $40k I would have picked it up already even with the salvage title.
