How much is my crashed 89 IROC worth?

Hey all,

Back in August I was involved in an accident with my IROC which was very unfortunate.

The whole passenger side would need to be replaced, rear axle has a very small bend in it, and the passenger side rear is down (Tire rubs on fender, not sure if its a shock that broken or not)

The engine is a 350TPI, Aluminum heads, stainless steel exhaust, not entirely sure what was done to the engine. The guy who had it before me (I'm 2nd owner) was a certified mechanic and did the things he did. Again, not sure.

Interior is in great shape.

I also have the original heads for it, Original Stereo, Passenger side carpet replacement (New), new badges

Car was bought for $5000 Canadian (I'm in BC) and now I'm selling. I threw up $2,500 or best offer but not sure if it's worth more or less? I was offered $1750 and again, not sure if I should take it or not.

Sounds like you didn't have full coverage and this accident was your fault and insurance isn't giving you anything?

If somebody offered you that much, take it. $1750 is a great deal on your end. That car is more or less totaled. It is fixable but it would be a money pit. Subframe may need straightened, rear quarter would need real work if not another from a donor, the other panels would require a donor vehicle or lots of body work. Take the $1750 and consider yourself lucky.

It was my fault, however the insurance doesn’t even know if this happened. So, clean title. Talked to a bodyshop guy he quoted me $7,300 to fix

That's a shame. I'd take the money and go with it.

OR

Do some serious tear down and part it out yourself on ebay (which will take longer).
