This was just left of the glove box on the panel
What was it used for?

Glovebox lock.
I think you would be well served to get a Haynes manual.

That makes sense
I have a lot of pictures of 1971 interiors
and none of them had this lock

I also tried to search for 'dash lock'
and could not find a specific answer
I did get hits on a few threads
but they were double digits long

I almost have the parts car disassembled
so will see about getting the 'better' 914 running

....I'll try not to ask dumb questions

All of us were beginner's at some point and there are no dumb questions, the members here have been very helpful to me and will continue to assist as we are able. What decent parts are salvageable from the parts car?

Pretty much done topside
so pulled parts car outside with my bobcat
flipped it over and pushed it back into the garage

Does anyone see anything, other than the rims,
that would be salvageable?

Am about ready to take the remaining body to the dump

Thanks

Those appear to be original steel wheels that might have some service left if they are in salvageable condition.

The rear trunk floor pan was pretty rusty on the rear edges
I don't think it can be saved

The car is just about ready to break in half!!

I have a lot of parts I have taken off.
Do I dare post a picture of them on this thread
or would this inappropriate?

Thanks

Mention the parts Dave, and then list them on the classified section.

Boy, there is NO snow left is there?

Assume that car lived it's life in Iowa and paid the price!

Can you make sure to add your parts car to the VIN database? Alive or dead, we track them here.

Rear trunks typically see rust from water damage.

Posts #75 and #127 show, from here, that the floor of the front trunk, also called “frunk”, looks to be in one piece. Many are chopped up from having A/C systems installed or lumpy from floor jack usage. The metal may not be perfect but looks salvageable, again from this perspective. New is available but if this one is going to the scrap yard someone here (IMG:style_emoticons/default/bye1.gif) may be able to use it.

I might have another piece in mind if you are going to cut it up. LMK.

Regards,
Sean

Did you pull the main chassis harness out and did it come out in one piece?
