    Re: help with my allante

    can you give us some more details, even basic ones like color combo, model year/build date mileage hardtop included etc would be helpful

    what works and doesnt work?

    speakers?
    radio?
    cassette?
    trunk pulldown?
    top pulldown?
    windows?
    any brake warnings?

    Assuming the headlights and taillights and sheet metal are not damaged, you can get more than $1500 parting it out. Again, what year?

    Re: help with my allante

    the wheels are probably CTS wheels. its a semi common mod.
    I'm not sure how much it rains in texas (hopefully not alot) but the interior could be ok depending on how worn out it is or how much it got rained on. just because it got wet a few times doesnt necessarily mean the fabric is ruined (electronics are another thing entirely).
    put a battery in it and see what does and does not work. you may be able to get it running and sell it as such (it would bring a couple grand if it was presentable and did not need a ton of work). even as a running car with a title, you can get 1500 for it easy (as long as its not loaded with electrical gremlins)
    pictures would really help determining the value of it.

    i agree that pics would go along way.

    they could be CTS wheels or depending on how ambitious the previous owner was they could be DTS wheels, STS or even XLR wheels.

    if you end up parting it i need a passenger side window regulator assembly please

    I know a shop in Arlington that does really nice interior work for very reasonable prices. He did some custom work on my vette and it came out great. The shop is called:
    Herman's Upholstery and Detail, (817) 462-1612, herman.hughes45@yahoo.com.
