1972 California clean roller - I have a California clean 1972 Malaga shell with everything but the running gear - sans: engine, transmission, drive-train, diff. and half shafts.  Look closely at the photos, and I have tons more at your request, this is the cleanest body I have seen in a very long time, spent most of its years in WA and CA.  It is a roller and is steerable and can be stopped by the e-brake, has some nice features, dual flag mirrors, good waist trim, shinny and serviceable paint, KYB suspension, recent new rubber on Alpine look alike wheels from an e30 - you could build from here.  Has a drivers seat, but no passenger seat, saddle interior doors and quarters and rear seat, dirty old carpet.  Have registration and title in hand to put back on the road.  Yes, could part out but don't have the time or patience, so for now it is a whole shell for sale.

Motor and trans are being rebuilt, motor didn't have oil pressure, who knows for how long, and low compression so it is being rebuilt and will go in another car.  

Thanks for the reply.

As the Malaga car looks decent it would be a shame not to put the rebuilt motor back in it, assuming, of course, it is matching numbers.

Because I'm a masochist I'm tempted by this. I just bought a '69 2002 with a rusty body, dual Weber sidedraft engine of unknown condition, and an incredibly preserved saddle interior. Between this and that, there would be one very nice car.


I agree, though, shame not to put the original engine back in this one. People care about such things these days.
