84 BMW 733I value ? repair or sell as is?

alternator went out on wifes 84 bmw 733I

fun car to drive , I like it but anything that breaks is 500 + so I think its time to move on .

first question replace alternator get her running and then sell or sell as is let them do the alternator ?

(starts now but dies when the voltage on the battery drops bleow 11v)

any ideas as to value ?

runs strong

paint poor , some rust , leather seats cracked , one window motor bad another about to go ac works barley .

abs needs work

im hoping for about 1k running or 750-800 as is

out of line ?

I would sell it as is. You could end up not recouping the cost of the alternator with sufficient selling price above the as-is $. Sounds a little well-used, but I'm guessing you could ask $1k as-is and take your best offer. Might even have somebody come along who will plunk down the grand.

replacment search not going well so I had the alternator rebuilt 140.00 , now its making expensive noises (not the alternator , sounds like power steering pump ) and the battery wont hold a charge .
spent 160.00 for a weeks car rental .

you probably killed the battery from running the car off of it. Car batteries have thin plates and do not like to be run down
