Re: Is This OMNI worth $300?

it has more than $300 in parts. But are looking to restore one? The gold one for $3500 that was for sale is cheaper lol

Re: Is This OMNI worth $300?

Is it worth it to you is the question! If your asking if it is a gold mine of a flip worth thousands of dollars, I'd say nope, if you need some parts off it, then can't go to wrong. Buy it take the parts you need maybe sell a few and scrap the rest and come out ahead most likely.

Re: Is This OMNI worth $300?

Well it is, if the undercarriage is still solid,The 1984 GLH are extremly rare to find and is the first year for them,The GLH with the 2.2 HO is still a potant little car.If you have the time and the money to invest you'll end up with a pretty rare car now.

Re: Is This OMNI worth $300?

Not really looking to restore it but just make it a daily driver like do most of the body work my self and get a decent paint job on it. I mean I got him down to $250 and In the end it has more than $250 in parts on it so either way I will win but most likely will fix up and drive since it will be my first GLH omni.

Re: Is This OMNI worth $300?

you gotta look at those floors before you make a decison on buying or not, if that thing is rotted (like most all omnis/chargers) then it could cost so much more then what your thinking.

Re: Is This OMNI worth $300?

Its a shame to see an omni like this I'm afraid if I don't buy it, It will be sent to the scrap yard and crushed.

Re: Is This OMNI worth $300?

That should be crushed. Those floors/frame rails are going to be nothing but swiss cheese. For parts yep worth $250 all day long. Only if you need them, trying to sell any of those parts minus the swiss cheese wheels will be very difficult because everything appears to be in either poor to fair condition.

And not many buyers on the swiss cheese because they are 4 bolt. Maybe honda guys.

Re: Is This OMNI worth $300?

if the floors do have some rust, poke at it and see if your finger goes through to test how far the rust has penetrated the metal, floor panels aren't that hard to do if you have a welder and have done them before

the swiss cheese rims are good for people who have a 84 and earlier shelby or a clone
