This is my car. It's a September, 1971 build 2002, registered as a 1972. I bought it in 2003 and drove it about 35K miles until we bought a house with a garage. Shortly after, I began to work on the car. I was determined to do everything myself, including bodywork and paint. I attempted to do rust repair in a few areas, but decided my welding ability was lacking and had the rockers and inner fenders repaired by a 2002 specialist. I stripped the car to bare metal, prepped, epoxy primed, seam sealed and endlessly sanded it. I painted it in October 2014. Currently (Dec 2015) I am wet sanding the clear coat and beginning to reassemble the car. I will continue to update this album for those interested. Thanks for looking!
My best 2002 score after watching this car setting in a field for three years one day driving by I noticed a new air stream setting next to this dilapidated farm house I pull in the drive way and was able to make a deal a purchase it for $300 it had been setting in the field for 18 years I had it for another 10 before redoing it and giving to my son Ellis....
From three there is one, after redoing my original 1975 granda red that I purchased at 19 and a1972 euro golf car that I picked up for $300 in 2004 after sitting in a field for 18 years I had a ton of parts so I picked a mostly dry shell from the west coast and this is the result...
The seats and steering wheel pictured are not for sale by me, from this car. They are available from Scat Procar and Momo. The original seats and steering wheel were sold when I replaced them with the items shown.
This was the donor car that supplied the drivetrain for the 1971 BMW 1600 Cabriolet. Bought it local in Scripps Ranch after he spun it into a guard rail front and back. I stripped this down, sold most of the parts and sold the shell to a guy that needed the pan to restore his 1600 Voll Cabriolet.
