$100 Tercel

This forum is for cars that run, or at least are close to running. This isn't for parting out complete cars.

looks like this one should be saved, looks decent, great price. says in needs a transmission. Relatively low miles, body looks pretty good. Likely should take it out of state to be registered. It is not far from Merced California.

I do not have time to do this, but someone can fix it and flip it at a good profit.

that is only about a days drive away from you, take a spare transmission and swap it out, drive it back the next day. clean it up and sell it, you could make about $2000 in 2-4 days time. likely it will need a few other things to get it running, battery, fresh oil, gear oil, perhaps a clutch and a new rear seal.

I have done trips like that when I was not so busy, fun way to travel, and make some money on the side.

but best of all, you rescue another Tercel4wd from going to the crusher. this one even looks decent, and it is an SR-5 model.
