Pictures? Interior/exterior color? Leather?

I buy these frequently. Many will express interest - who doesn't want a Porsche cheap? - but only a few can perform getting shipping arranged, paying promptly with good funds, and ready to accept as-is without complaining, or backing out of the deal. But... you must realize that you have the obligation to provide accurate and detailed information.

The lack of information in your original post is troubling. What do you mean by blown? Rod through the case, or intermix, or IMSB failure, or???? How many miles? what condition is the rest of the car in? Is the rear window good? Are the tires good? How about the seats - tears? Etc. etc. the more info, the better the bid. If I have to buy sight unseen, without any info, then I will assume the worst and my bid will reflect that. If you want best bids, then lots of photos and full disclosure about blown engine.

Hope this isn't too direct, but I'm guessing you knew already knew this anyway.

Let me know,
Thanks,
Joe

sorry about the lack of information, it was more to test the waters. I will delete this post after seeing there is enough interest to sell it and repost a real one that is detailed with pictures.

Not too direct at all. I've never sold a car as a parts car before so thanks for the awakening.
