As a follow-up to a post a couple of weeks ago, I need to decide what to do with the body. Pictures are at:
A few notes:
I tried to take the pictures of the rusty spots mostly. EVERY panel at the bottom has rust in the body. The passenger door too has rust at the bottom.
The driver side door was repaired by the previous owner. The door looks fine, but I included a picture that shows he put a new skin over the old skin (the primer gray door). I would consider that a "shoddy" repair, but maybe it's common with the T's to do this. I have to imagine that unless this is done well, fitment to a body would be affected.
The previous owner worked on one of the seats, and ordered new springs (springs in box), but that's as far as he got.
Other than what is in the picture, I don't have any other interior parts (the previous owner disassembled the interior but they could not find more than is in the pictures).
The fenders, running boards, and spare tire brackets are also available. The fenders and running boards are rusty and dented but the bracket is in good shape.
The 15 coils have been tested for secondary winding continuity. I don't need those or the coil box as I'm converting the electrical system.
I'd like to avoid craigslist and ebay if possible. As I know I'll need rocky mountain brakes and wire wheels, etc., one thought is to list it in the club website and trade it for parts. In advance thanks for any thoughts on value, and if you think it reasonable to shoot for used wire wheels and rocky mountain brakes; just one or the other? Both? Thanks, Bill P.
Almost looks like someone put hinges on the rear panel!
