Honestly you could part the thing out for $500 with very little work. Doors, seats, motor, wire harness, glass, hatch, wheels, interior pieces, etc. But like I said, it's a mechanics special. Very limited market to who is going to buy the entire car to fix it or part it. Any offer above free is a valid price to pay, but it all depends on the understanding you and your friend have about the car.

Does she care to make any money out of it, as in you are doing a favor getting it out of the driveway? In that case offer the lowest amount. $200 seems fair. If she bought it for $1100, $750 is a bit high. Regardless of the price you negotiate, the car is still worth way more than you will pay for it in parts.
