Montreal basket case *FREE* in NJ, 07869

I can't bear to cut it, maybe some enterprising young man can chop off the quarter panels and ship them abroad to those who previously inquired.

I've taken everything off it that I want / need. Car has nothing on it: no doors, hood, drivetrain, trim, little trinkets, etc. Has a front suspension and 2 wheels, but nothing out back. It is really a shell, and not a good one at that. It is, however, free of charge and comes with a little help loading it onto your trailer.

This is the orange car I've previously listed (pic below). Was in a fire several years ago, then left to rust in Florida, then PA. To say it is "rusty" would be an understatement.

Car is located in Northern New Jersey. PM or email when you'd like to come by.

That's very nice, what a wholesome image.

Car is still available, though I now have to add a disclaimer:

If you wonder if this car MIGHT be for you, or if you ask yourself IF you can rebuild this car, or if your friends say it COULD be your perfect first car, or IF YOU DIDN'T READ THE BLOODY AD AND LOOK AT THE PICTURES then, I'm sorry to say, this is not the car for you, little boy.

Mmkay? Mmkay.

With a little cosmetic work, it could become a nice gate guard-type installation for an auto shop or similar, a conversation piece on someone's garage roof or a piece of contemporary art.

Looks like it's all it can be used for.

07869, which is more accurate to GPS than my stupid split-township name. Thought I put the zip code in the description...?

Yeah, I agree. There is a guy in the U.K. that has been cutting cars in half lengthwise and hanging them on the wall as art. Unfortunately, I can't find an image, but this Montreal looks like an excellent candidate!

We have a hotel whereby the rooms are classic car shells.

Just kidding. Although I'm sure it would be a hit.
So whoever develops the idea, I want 30%.


There's a company in Netherlands or maybe it was Belgium, that rents 'homeless rooms', whereby people sleep outside, to experience the homeless lifestyle.

I'm sure the homeless are amazed to learn it's a lifestyle choice.

Hey, I'm in MD and I am interested in the car. If it is still available, please let me know
Also, do you have any additional pictures of the undercarrage / chassis?
