Default Need Help with Identifying Nitro Buggy

This nitro buggy was given to me by an uncle before he passed away. I would like to get more information about this before I determine if I will restore it or sell it.

Engine feels liks it has good compression and it looks like the chassis is missing a part or two. Just trying to determine what I'd be getting myself into.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kyosho Assault. Looks to be in good condition too, these are getting hard to find.

How much does a fully restored Kyosho Assault go for?

$350-$400 would be a fair asking price, if you make it looks really pretty. These things look good with the aluminum all polished up nice. This one looks to be in ridiculously good condition, and looks like it was hardly driven, it just needs to be cleaned up some. That motor is an OS CZ-R 12, and worth $50-60 to the right person, which of course brings up the overall value of the car. You are missing some parts though, like the right part of the roll bar/bracket, the wing and mount, and the body, and the little driver guy. All of these things can be found with a little searching.

Thanks for your help proanti1.

I'm going to do some thinking over the next few days regarding what I'm going to do with this.  I agree that these look pretty cool once they are complete and ready to rock.

Kept telling myself I was done with R/C.....
