78 spider for sale - with stuff!; cheap

Post by seppanton » Wed Jun 05, 2019 9:12 am

Good day
I am getting serious about disposing of my 78 Spider.
It ran, badly due to misfiring on one cylinder (oil fouled plug) when I pulled into the garage several years ago.

I have a spare transmission from a 79 that goes with it. Also an engine from the same 79 - head is off, crank won't turn.
Lots of other little pieces.

I am just west of Cincinnati OH and would like to see $1000 for the whole mess. If someone is interested but thinks the cost is too high - let's talk.

thanks

How is the body and interior? Any rust, major dents?

the body is ok - I have minor dents in the passenger side front fender; there is rust at both rear wheel arches and bubbling along the bottom edge of the drivers door.
There is rust hole about the size of a quarter at the rear corner of the drivers door opening too, inside the sill.

Floor pan at both drivers feet and passenger s feet has been glassed.

Interior is all there and only the driver seat has splits in the vinyl upholstery, the padding has not come out the splits. Top is complete, no tears, rear window not cracked (At least it wasn't a couple of years ago)

The front spring towers are rusted though - the rust has penetrated the towers but they are still there and connected to body.

This car is the early 78 body with the skinny long tapered door handles!

Still in my garage - the header has been spoken for though!
Anyone?

You may just have to offer to give it away. A scrap yard is not going to offer much money, not much metal in them.
