okay so this guy is trying to sell this 1982 Brat GL; first let me list the goods:
Brush guard, third eye, jumpseat belts/frame, (no actual seats though), only 73,000 miles on it
The bad: Major rusto probs in the bed (i.e. entire end of bed is a large rusty hole. Tailgate can't be opened cause it's not attatched well (rust), interior is torn up a little, the door panels are cut up, no jump seats, not a single tire matches another, driver side rear quarter panel wrinkled and rusting, and the back window was busted out.
How much should I offer him? He doesn't know how much its worth, but he thinks its worth somewhere between 300 and 500.
I haven't been able to test drive it yet, not until monday, but he said it ran fine as far as he knew. I was hoping to get it for less than 300, any thoughts on what it would be worth?

I'd offer him $200 and not pay more than $300. Also, do the haggeling over many beers :drunk: and use all the Jedi mind tricks you know to make him see things your way

Ouch that thing sound worse than my Brat.From the reading your description it sounds like a parts car.If you think the parts on it are worth $300 maybe it's not such a bad deal. But if I were going to buy it I would offer $150 and not go over $200.This is my often misguided opinion.

Pass on it, a non rusty BRAT is worth it's weight in gold.
