It does not have to run or even be complete. Under a thousand, a few hundred dollars at most, sorry. I am open to suggestions for payment and procurement. I am a fabricator by trade. I have hit a wall with results. Car auctions like Copart charge over $400 in fees and require a $400 refundable deposit. Before you have the vehicle you are up $800. I am located in Maine and will drive to South Western Pennsylvania if I have to. I am going to overhaul a couple and getting the car is the most difficult part.
