Bought this Brat on Sunday in Worland, Wyoming. 4/5 lift, 15 inch pugs, jump seats have been added. A little hail damage, and a bit of surface rust.


My plan:

Ej Frankenmotor swap

5 speed d/r

rear disks

possibly add power steering

Fix surface rust

paint white with black bottom



White one currently has the frankenmotor and tranny but is extremely rusty

Nice! I think I remember seeing this on CL. It was a great deal, from what I remember. 


The camber issue should be nothing more than the strut blocks in backwards, as suggested by others who saw it.


Nice looking bumper.


Looking forward to updates.  :popcorn:

Yeah it was the one in worland. I rotated the blocks 180 degree and it fixed it. Virtually rust free. I was very supprised with body.

Well i know this thread has been dead for a while, but that's all to me getting injured 7 days after starting the thread, school, and getting sick over the summer. I am however happy to say that it is up and running. Had quite a few hold ups while putting it in, including having to change the entire dash harness, but overall i am extremely happy.
So now for the list of mods as of today
Ej frankenmotor
5 speed D/R
4" lift on the cross members and 3" on suspension
15" 505 Pug Alloys
82 Brat instrument cluster
EA81 non-turbo power steering rack
Still have a lot of body work to do, but the guys next to where I work are helping me out with that and so far i am very please. But i am planning on painting it Dodge Viper SRT Pearl Blue, dynomatting the interior, putting in impreza seats, and a steel rear bumper.
I'll upload some pictures as soon as i can
