Full Version: 74 1.8 rust bucket parting out

914rrr
I recently purchased this "gem" as a donor car for my 74 2.0 project. I need to part this out very quickly as my wife wants her garage space back ASAP!! Special consideration given to someone who can take the whole tub less parts I need for my project teener below.

Parting out a very rusty 74 1.8. Parts already spoken for (by me) are the windshield, windshield trim, front bumper, trans, cowl area metal and possibly metal at passenger side fender where it meets the cowl, some metal around the front trunk and headlight bucket areas, steel sport wheels, possibly the doors, etc.

This car does have a really good drivers side quarter panel and front fender and passenger side rear quarter panel but with some damage at the bottom rear where the tire hit the quarter panel due to failed suspension console.

LMK what you may need.

Appears to have the OG 1.8 engine and FI intact, but very weathered and buried in critter nests. Also appears that it may have had a minor fire as part of the rain tray is melted. I'll LYK what I unearth.

I was thinking the same thing. It might be fixable. IIRC, there's a way to braze pot metal (?)

That would be great! There are some parts I’d like to get that should be relatively immune to small brush fires lol!

I may have a local buyer for the whole-ish shell. We might be able to work something out. Curious, were you planning on shipping that part or picking it up?

IIRC, the passenger side was OK, but I may need it for my own project. I'll check condition and get back with you.

Sorry, nada on both.

I did luck out and get a usable version of both with my project car although the console was shortened for a (really nice) dealer AC unit.

Do you have the roof and if so, what condition is it in?

Roof is OK... both pieces, LOL!! I've literally never seen a broken top, but this one has one. Perhaps a tree fell on it?

Engine is a 1.8, has original FI. Someone local has dibs on the engine and FI, although after "unearthing" the engine (almost a 5 gal bucket of critter stuff, root balls, etc.) there isn't a whole lot salvageable, at least on the top side sad.gif

Part of the alloy fan housing literally dissolved.

My apologies to everyone who inquired about parts for my slow responses. Been delayed with OOT family issues / LTC discussions for my dad. I'll hopefully check it all out in the next week or so , finally removed the engine and trans from the donor car which was my top priority.

Well, I was hoping the intake runners, and throttle body might be usable, but I dunno man…. Very sad to see what happened there.

It does look like some of the Plastic NLA parts might clean up well though!

The fan housing is magnesium. Mag can dissolve quickly in the right conditions.

Family concerns are a "work in progress", thanks for asking. Trying to get dad and mom to accept their limitations and the inevitability of LTC help in home and/or elsewhere.

Most of the stuff on your list from this rusty 74 could be classified as "barely usable / better than nothing".
I'll check on the license plate bracket and the horn.
I have the speaker covers but the drivers side has some cracked slats that are still in place (re-glue-able?) and the passenger side cover has a cracked bottom tab. Both never had speakers in them if that makes any difference as this was a "radio delete" car.
I do have the radio delete plate and vinyl.
Steering rack cover is toast / rusted through.
Sail trim is there but I need to see if it's better than what's on my resto 74.

When you have a chance a few pics would help. I’m resurrecting a survivor ‘74 so perfect is not a requirement. Some patina is ok.

LMK what you need

Hi there, I'm looking for some late model (73 on) passenger door glass unchipped. It's the main glass that winds up and down.

There are two styles and I think mine is the Clear which should be labelled DELODUR - 1.

Wondered if yr pass side door glass might match??

Thanks Nick

My apologies to whoever PM'd me about radio mounting bits. I accidently deleted your PM.
In answer to your question, the rusty parts car didn't have a radio, so no radio mounting bits (or corresponding antennae hole in the drivers side front fender). I do have a radio delete plate and vinyl covering from that car if you or anybody else is interested.
