To begin the August I bought a fantastic ride nearly completely sight unseen…
Only going by the description and pictures, trusting the seller he does not talk absolute BS about the car. Something i cannot fully recommend.
So I still decided to buy said car, rent a tow truck and pay aswell as pick it up.
Arriving at the place and seeing the car was a small disappointment to say the least. Several parts were just missing, apart from bushings and the engine nothing was really done.
But there it is now, at home and work can start.
Isn’t it a beauty, it does not seem to bad from this perspective… but just wait…
No Sunvisors, no mirror, no radio, no horn… oof.
Where did the mat go?
The engine however is fully rebuilt and needs to be worn in, starts fantastic but everything needs some adjustment. For the nerds: Its the 126A1.048 square head.
And here you can see the misisng rest. No rear bumper, some badges are missing or just bleached out.
The roof aswell is dented OMG.
Now that the shock settled in i went about to order parts. A correct bumper on the front and a new one on the rear, since the one on the front is for the second series but the body is already the 87+ series that has the big bumpers.
The ID-Plate is missing completely, noone knows where its gone aswell, but that is a fairly minor issue actually, more worringly is the lack of keys. I have an ignition key and thats about it.
Thats it for now. Once there is progress… there will be more here.
