Wes was nice enough to hook Taylor up with a roller project. He drove down to Mendocino to get it about 3 weeks ago. We finally have it in a place we can work on it and started the clean up.

The backstory is that Wes got it in Oakland where it had sat behind a rib joint for some time. Apparently, some rodents made a home in the air box. They also acquired a taste for ribs. It appears the brought a few back with them. They were there for some time, and urinated eating the bulkhead out. The hell hole and floorboards look good. The pan is intact and looks good.

He has a bunch of work ahead of him, but it will get restored back to stock ivory white.

Looks like the heater hose hole and the trunk pull mounting pocket have gone to 914 heaven?

Yes pretty much gone. Need to buy / build a rotisserie so we can media blast it. Looks like it's the bulkhead only. We need to blast the area under the tank to make sure there's not more down there.

Either way Taylor will be getting ahold of you (Cary) to see what and how to cut.

Looks like we didn't get any other than the bulkhead, possibly part of a fender well.
We need to blast the seams to assess the welds.

Since the pictures were taken i have gotten a little more done. I have pulled the wiring harness , taken out the dash frame and have the inside fully stripped. Just scrapped the tar off the floor pans and was plesantly supprised at how little rust was found.Attached ImageAttached Image

This was a fairly nice car that someone let set for sometime and apparently made a perfect home to a family of rats, at any rate eating through wiring and pissed on the cowling bulkhead rusting it away to a point where you could literally stick your finger easily through the rusted out bulkhead and gas tank. Other wise fairly clean and rust free. I used it as a parts car and found it good to compare wile resembling my yellow car. I at one point thought I might build a little truck out of it but just getting to a point that I don't need any new projects. I'm very happy that Taylor has decided to bring this little 73 back to life.

Yes Rob. I know him well too.
I'm actually excited to see Taylor making headway. I took the mounts for the rotisserie to Cary to have them made to easily bolt up. As soon as he's done we will put up and blast all the rust and known problem areas to take back to metal. These all look really solid so should be little drama there. Cary is getting a section for Taylor to cut out and I'll be helping him as much as I can to get this to primer as soon as we can.
Still will be a drawn out process, but he's got the patience to do it right.

Super In Law should get them finished up tomorrow.......................

We had a few issues. Looks like the 75 -76 stub tubes were welded on kind of free hand. They aren't equal lengths from the center. So the 75-76 mounts will have to wait.

Just got back from california to pick up the motor (Thanks again Wes) and had sometime to work on the beast. Got it up on the stands and the front dropped. I did notice that on the engine tins there seemed to be a white stamp. Anyone know if thats from the factory or what it means? Attached Image Attached Image

There is also an I.O. stamped in the front of the passenger side tin. I've never seen this any idea what it means?
