This is not a good plan. None of that stuff is compatible with anything else and there's absolutely no reason to go down that path. 10 years from now you still won't have a car, just a large hole where your bank account used to be.

There are not a lot of useable parts on this car that are even as good as what's out there in the market already, let alone better. Not much value there. Once a part is shot, it's worthless. Restoring this car, even if it's not 100% original, is a $100k proposition, assuming it's not too far gone. I haven't seen too many cars worse than this.

Selling your rock crawler, which in itself is a good idea, won't even get you started on the funding.

My suggestion is to sell what you have and find something else. You might be able to sell this as-is, for enough money to buy an actual, running car. You could tinker with that and have a lot more fun.

Sell it as-is, after cleaning it up a little so buyers can see what they have. Don't make the mistake of taking it apart first.

are you all bored and tired?!

let the man do his thing... any 911 back on the street is worth any kind encouragement!

maybe he'll abort due to lack of money... but who says its to be done in 12 month time?!

and: I've seen here resto-documentations of at least similar bad cars. so he's not the only "stupid" one ;-))

My suggestion is to hang out here on Pelican for a while and learn. By the time your post count jumps up from 2 to 500 you will abandon this project due to your newly found "wisdom". After reading your plans I'm actually starting to think this is a joke after all.

This would be a candidate for OVERHAUL'N

I would like to see if they would get it done in one week.

If you were my collage age son and brought this stuff home, I'd kick you out.

Clearly you have enough $ to be living on your own

btw, I'm 28

From what I see in the photos, practically everything on this car needs to be replaced, I question what would even remain from the original vehicle?

CAN'T............STOP...........LOOKING

It's like watching a train wreck. Can't peel my eyes away. I'm subscribed. Whatever actually happens next will be the opposite of any reasonable advice that could be offered here and I'm in. I'm gonna watch this.

Hopefully I can pick up a few key "learned it by trying" things like how to use Miata floor pans.

Not much of an update. I have not had time to mess with it. However tonight I started digging into it and cleaning it up to see what can be saved.

I started at the front and worked may way back.

I found a set of window regulators for the extra set of windows. A extra steering rack, steering wheel and what I assume are the rear seat belt receivers?



Normal rust up front. I will probably be deleting the battery boxes.






Moving into the interior I started shop vacing it out and cleaning it up. I removed all of the extra parts. I found two replacement door windows. One exhaust manifold and the stock muffler. The 901 transmission was also in the back. I was told it was rebuild about 7k before the engine was pulled to be rebuilt do to a valve problem. I don't know how true that it but other then dirt its really clean. I also found the a/c compressor.

I found the stock steering wheel and re installed it as the current one was unusable.

Both passenger seats are in good condition no rips or wear. The front driver seat bottom is not usable I believe the seat pan is completely rusted out.

On to the engine bay, I did not start cleaning it but I did take a few pics as I document everything in my builds.









Moving onto the exterior I pulled out the driver side rear quarter panel that was caved in.

From what I can tell the passenger rear was hit. And dont even get me started on the amount of bondo on this car. There maybe more bondo then rust if that is even possible.

I did the quickest/ essayist windshield removal ever. It took me about 2 min to remove. I pulled the trim out by hand then I pushed the passenger upper side of the windshield and popped it out.

Cool project, your car has the same AC system mine does! I'm missing the blower motor cover though!

It's rough, but it can be saved...any car can. If I were you I'd return it to stock form, but since your missing the engine I would build a nice 2.7 MFI engine for it. You won't regret it.
