Recently came across this Sprint, it’s missing an engine, transmission, hood. The frame is rotted, as is trunk & rear bumper. Before I commit to this project can it even be saved?
Correct, the early ones didn't get rain gutters till after chassis 1493*02000
Tom that's the 2 into 1 down pipe of the standard Normale system which bolts onto the 4 into 2 cast iron exhaust headers, it's just pulled right forward so is misleading & does resemble 1 piece of the Veloce headersDo I see half of a set of Veloce headers in the first photo?
Right, the back window and hoods were in the pictures that Jay posted so most likely sold to someone.
The story about the back window might be true. As I recall, it was present but just resting on the back cut-out; e.g., it wasn't properly installed. So maybe they moved the car without securing it, and when it was coming down the ramp from the truck it fell off. Or as 6alfas said, since those rear windows are NLA, someone may have made a quick buck with it.The current owner said the back glass broke when the tow truck dropped it off (sounds like a lie) & it never came with a hood (proven lie thanks to this forum) it still sits outside uncovered and continues to rot.
Yes, saw the steering wheel. Missing the horn button and needs restoring.Engine and gearbox is not a big worry. Some are still being thrown out. Trim is the problem.
If you can beat sheetmetal and weld yourself, maybe, just maybe, it would be a start for a racing project? You would avoid much of the trim issues. But $1000 is an absolute max.
Except...still nobody has noticed the steering wheel?
