Rolled Wagon, Need to find Replacement
Posted 15 April 2004 - 10:08 AM
I need to find a replacement, but I only have about $150 bucks. I have a Cosmetically good/rusty rockers 83 GL, but Id rather sell it and/or part it out. Same with my wagon, interior is still good, and it has a JDM Transmission and Diff. (3.7)
The real question is, do you guys think I would do better parting the wagons out or would anyone like to buy em. Id like to get a hatchback, maybe a trade?
Any questions or comments are appreciated.
Edit: Posted Pics.

There are enough soobs in our area that I would part out the old ones and go buy a running one.
If you are going to part anything out, I need another set of rear disk brakes. I know they didn't come on your year, but you might have done the mod.
Also need two of the console pieces, the front and back, in blue for a D/R 4 speed wagon. I already have the middle two pieces. The front piece needs to have the power mirror control cutout (I already have the switch) and the rear piece needs to be the tall one with the power window control cutout (I already have that switch, also). It is hard to find the front piece that has not been butchered to fit stereos, so if yours is in good shape but not blue, I may get it anyway and paint it.

If you were not strapped for cash, it would be a fun project car. Cut off the whole roof and fab a roll cage. Put the safari rack back on top and you would look like you are ready to tackle the African plains.
Wouldn't work too well in the NW rain, though.

interior is like 98% perfect and exterior is about 95% perfect.

But thanks to everyone so far.
SubSand: Ill check on the interior pieces when i get home.
Wagon: Those are staying with me for my next project .
Scooby: I got an 86 I can use for a DD, But thanks. I might know someone thats would be interested in it though. How Much You Want for it?
Calebz: Ill check on that thanks.

Of course we know Miles Fox would almost assuredly drive it with a little sledgehammer sheetmetal work.
You should be able to salvage a lot from it, including the safari rack...even if it's bent, it's useable..

I will most likely save as much as i can (Rack included) and make some sort of Truck out of it. But i would rather get a different sube, and be a little more grown up with it, and treat it better. Do you guys think i could make enough money, say atleast $500, selling all the interior pieces and miscellaneos things?

Oh yeah, there is a standard hatch, think it's a 84? here in Roanoke, Va. for sale for 600.00. I owned it for a week and sold it. Solid car. I'm getting out of the EA81's. Round headlights, rubber mats.

Scoob: Ill talk to my friend, do you know whats wrong with it?
Posted 15 April 2004 - 10:28 PM
Should be able to straighten that roof rack back out for use on your next ride.........
Good luck and happy hunting!

i just dont have the time to mess with it when im 18, going to school full time plus working 33hours (atleast) every week.

Well, that sucks. Hope things work out for you. My hatch is not a daily driver. Maybe if you put some different tires on it, but it wouldnt look right :-\
I got a car that I can use for a DD, but its not accessible to me at all times. Hence I need a car for my own. The outlook right now is that im going to throw the motor that was in the Red wagon into the rustbucket parts car so ill have something to drive when i need it. Turbone, your hatch, if i got it, would be used for "pleasure trips" (through mud that is).
Im just trying to get everything in order right now then i will probably start asking if anyone needs parts.

Your old one has more character now. Lots of us don't have a straight panel on the vehicle!
I see it as a great starting platform for an OFF-ROAD BEAST!
Let the project begin! (did someone say :cool: sawzall???)
I carved mine up and it's happier now!

Sweet: That just might happen, take everything thats usable out of it, and make some sort of windshield less roadster and/or cage it up and continue with the off roading.
Anyone with a hatch for cheap in WA, preferably no engine tranny etc, but with good interior and paint?
Thanks guys cant wait to meet you all some time. WCSS6??
