Well it's been a long winter and I haven't gotten much done. Was browsing CL and found a deal I couldn't pass up....
An 88 Shelby Z T-Top. Owner was cleaning the garage and needed it out, so I snapped it up for a song. Came with a TON of parts.
The floors are gone and the quarters and rockers are a disaster. Previous owner had redone about half the floor before they gave up. As much as I love the t-tops The damage to the quarters makes this a lost cause. I plan on parting the thing down and scrapping the unibody.
I haven't even been through everything yet but here's the highlights of what I got:
2 whole 87 motors (not pistons in either) with accessories
One very nice looking head, possibly recently redone
88 electronics to potentially convert the 87
Nice condition pumpers
Two sets of T-tops
1 Garrett turbo
1 Mitsu turbo
1 Airesearch turbo (have not fully investegated that one yet)
Full set of charcoal leather enthusiast seats.
+20 injectors (need to check condition)
ported water pump housing
NIB vac block
Full 89-90 body kit (rear bumper, front fascia and side skirts)
The car is basically complete, so I can mix and match just about every piece to find the best parts. I feel really bad that I'll be tearing it down, but the rust damage is just way more than I want to deal with.
So over the next week or two I'll be organizing and cataloging parts and then it's (finally) time to work on the 2.5 and get the car ready to receive it!
