PostPost by: garymcove » Wed Jan 23, 2013 2:16 am

Parting out this complete car. This car has a totally restored chassis, engine, gear box, all suspension as well. New urethane bushings, restored wheels and new tires. The engine is running in the chassis. Excellent body. No accident damage and the body is stripped of all paint. Excellent original interior. All parts are boxed and labeled. It has a complete photo book of the restoration process to date. All vin plates and tags are with the car. [/b] Please email directly to my personal email for faster response. If you need specific photos, let me know.

The car is located in Massachusetts, USA. Will ship parts to anywhere in the WORLD

Dropbox link is incomplete! :(

I am guessing the car is in the US due to @verizon.net but still need a beeter idea of location... Again why don't people put their location in their signature?...

Why part it out if it is complete and in good shape?

I got a reply from Gary - he's in in Charlton, Mass(plus however you spell it). He's using the burnt shop's email so he must have something to do with the outfit. Your theory fits, 65sunbeam.

Photo link doesn't work for me.

This was on Ebay at least once. Parting them is a shame, but, whata' ya gonna do? There was a guy that just parted out a real decent TC Europa in Oregon.........I didn't get that either.

But, either this seller wanted to much for the complete car, or there were no buyers for a torn apart pile of parts.

It would be nice if someone would step up and buy it and the seller step down and sell it.....complete.
