97 SH beat to crap

was looking for parts for my 4th gen on craigslist and came across this 97 Prelude for dirt cheap with a blown motor. went to look at it figuring it was a Base, I would use the tranny,(mine grinds) do the 5th gen sunroof conversion and 5 lug conversion...get there thing is beat to shyt , Primer rattle can over the factory paint, quarter panels full of bondo and SPRAY FOAM! LOL....overspray everywhere , pop the hood smells like antifreeze so i assume head gasket.....this thing is just full of failure...

take a closer look at it and the motor and tranny and realize it's a SH.. (kid didnt know anything about the car)

crap can't use the tranny or 5 lug swap...

"you got the title",
"yup" kid says

aight F it i'll buy it. lol

I couldnt pass it up it was too cheap, and it was just sitting in a ****ty neighborhood just rotting away, i had to save it

Got it home

so what you guys think too far gone?
just part it out or should i try and fix it someday
(after my 4th gen build of coarse) body is reeeeally rough, interior is not bad but tan















sunroof will be keep tho if i part it out


inside for now LOL

Re: 97 SH beat to crap

Looks like a good find (for a parts car). If you don't mind my asking, how cheap was "too cheap"?

So sad, so sad, it's a sad sad situation .

Part it. That's about all that's worth doing to it. . .

And yes how much did you end up getting it for?

Re: 97 SH beat to crap

I have seen worse. The body to me doesnt look bad other than rear quarter panels. Body work,cheap paint and junkyard engine and it could be a good daily,

I smell a project. It could honestly be a great restoration and mod story. Just my .02 though.

Re: 97 SH beat to crap

Track fiend. Gut it, lexan where the glass is, type-S motor, sell everything you don't need. One racing seat, autometer gauges. Win some courses, worst case scenario, you have fun along the way.

I also responded in your build the other option.
