yikes! cranks but no start, which is good because I'm pretty sure if it did start the vibraton would shake it in half. 

But if he's got a spare 5 speed trans (not a 4 speed) then the one in the car and the spare together probably make up for the price of entry.

This one is a little better shape for $800.  Cranks, but doesn't run.  Rusty, but maybe not junk.  Also in NE FL

At least the ad has full disclosure pictures of rust, instead of trying to fool folks like most CL ads!!! 

Id imagine they are not bad folks to negotiate with, if someone wanted a parts car.

I definitely want one, but looking at these two examples, makes me thank myself for picking up two rust free AW11 MR2's instead....... I prefer the looks of the X1/9 but finding one that is relatively rust free is almost impossible. MR2's also rust, but not as bad and both my cars really are rust free examples. Perhaps someday, I'll find an X that has been sitting in a garage since 1977 out of the elements that someone needs to get rid of.

There's a nicer looking one in SoFL posted for $4k that's supposedly running/driving & "ready for paint"  tough to tell exactly what stage it's at, and what kind of body work was done based on the pictures.  It's been posted for +6 months now, so there may be some wiggle room.  It has a tow-bar installed so it may be a relatively easy pickup.  I've wanted one of these for a long time.  I have zero direct experience, but absent a Busso V6 transplant I'm guessing the MR2 is probably more fun to drive (and less likely to rot away).  

Wheeler Deelers (show on Motortrend) recently did a light restoration on one of these.

Here's a package deal w/2 X-1/9s.  Neither have titles, but in FL it's not too difficult to get a bonded title.   This project isn't for me.  

The green looks like it does have rust (of course it does) on the door.  The shell also has rust, but 1+1 = 3!  There's a 1300 and 1500 engine.
