85 or 86 Trans Am - Need background VIN check please...

I've seen this Trans Am sitting for over a year or so here locally and and not sure what year it is to be exact but looks to need lots of TLC. I contacted the business this was sitting in front of and got some info to contact who was responsible for it. Not sure how this works in the State of Florida... however there is no title or paperwork on it. They want $1k for it as it sits. I may talk them down some but curious what you all think here. Is it worth the hassle or not? Vin is in the pics and other pics below... Want to get back into another third gen and wondering if this i worth restoring? Currently it doesn't run and I'm sure there are a myriad of other issues as well... Thanks in advance!

Thank you for that! I'm also looking into VIN background check on possible number of owners and history of the vehicle regarding maintenance etc... and when it was last registered etc... Any title issues of the sort as well..

If you’ve got any law enforcement buddies, they can get that info pretty easy.

The Dept of licensing should have a process for abandoned vehicles. The land owner can file an affidavit that the vehicle has been abandoned on their property. They send a letter to the last known owner, and after a certain amount of time without response, they're granted a title for it. Then they can sell it to you.

I’ll look into that. Thanks.

If you can't register it , you got a great straight donor car. Especially if it's got good interior panels and pieces

Thanks for all the replies. I took more pics but will post them later. Found more rust problem areas and think i would be in over my head trying to restore this car. I'm better off finding one with a title and no rust plus less problems. The under carriage looked pretty clean and no rust, just the outside panels and the drivers side inner
t top rim/lip.

Seeing the additional pics, I would walk away from that car. Would take a lot of money and time to get her looking restored properly. That car would be a good "part out" car for ebay if you had the time to part it out. A lot of the little parts are like unicorns and people pay big money for them.

I’m in agreement. I won’t touch it.
