Okay, so there is one for sale in my area , limited info, $1000.00, say good shape, near mint interior, does have boost gauge, fog lights, etc. 144K, seized engine, My ? is this a hard to find engine if not repairable? I mean I know a little about them, own 1, built them at Saturn but curious about maybe picking this on up, for parts input appreciated.

What I can say with certainty is that no wrecking yard will pay that amount for a car with a non-working engine. The best that owner could hope for is that some wrecking yard would pay is $250.00 to take it off of his hands. You shouldn't pay anywhere near the amount that the seller is asking. This is an automobile which - due to its bad engine - is viewed as little more than a boat anchor by the automotive business world.

2004 ION-2 Sedan
Default Re: 06 Redline for sale ?

The only way to look at this purchase is for parts value. Best case scenario you fix the engine and everything else is great and it drives good. Worst case you fix the engine then find out the tranny is shot and the suspension needs to be replaced. I would check out the underside carefully cause I have seen someone bottom out a car destroy the oil pan and seize the engine. He put on a new oil pan and tried to paint the frame and say it just needed a new engine but he hit so hard the sub frame was tweaked and there just was no hope for it. This was a bit of an extreme situation but just be careful and make sure if you need to part it out you can get your money back since you are the one taking this risk.

Good Luck!

Months later.... here are a few (7) nationwide choices, and some so old that they may no longer be available. Ranging from 2 to 263 on Iseecars.com.
