Probably not much. From your description (which doesn't really get into
miles or condition) I'm guessing less than $1000.00.

I just payed $1500.00 for an '86 4kq with 145k miles with a nice
interior, okay body (a few small issues and faded original Zermatt
Silver paint), cracked windshield, new clutch, new H&R Springs, new
Bilstein Sports, new suspension bushings and strut mounts, new Yokohama
AVS tires, in-dash CD, and many other new parts done by the PO over the
last 10k miles. Despite having two turbo cars with double the
horsepower, this is my favorite car to drive simply because it handles
soooo darned good and is so fun to drive.

No door handle problems, everything works (except AC blows
luke-warm...cool but not cold, needs a charge, compressors tries and
cuts out).

Sounds like a project car that would be better to complete than bail out
of to me.
