Quoting SmoothCustomer:

^^You live in KY? Maybe I'll sell you my shell. Although the simple fact that I also live here wouldn't really make getting my shell to you any easier.




PM me what you have, I'll come get it this weekend...

Quoting Turbro_Negro:

Welcome to the 2yr club. I've been looking for rust free for shell for that long. It's hopeless, I've moved on.




I've seen them for sale around the PNW. It's a ways to go for a 22 year old car, but it'll be rust free.

The few I've pursued on the west coast have been snatched up rather quickly or the seller doesnt want to deal with shipping a roller.

I pick up one last summer off this board that is completely rust free. It had been for sale since 2010 but had a very vague description and crappy pics.

I made sure to inspect it as thoroughly as possible when I went to check it out. Interior was a bit dirty and stale from sitting, but the leather was soft and I made sure to check the lower fender area for rust as well as removing the fuel sending unit. Both areas looked brand new so I knew it was a good platform for a project car for me.

Point of the story is dont give up on finding one. Clean, rust free cars are still out there, and sometimes just a few pages back in the for sale section here.

I have a shell lined up if I still want it. It isnt rust free but I can fix the rust it has for very cheap and it comes with a lot of work I was already going to do already done. But, I have another project planned for next summer and ya'll love it.

Update on this car:

It will be scrapped this spring. The water authority did a repair that resulted in a very large dip in the road. It was going uphill and I couldn't see it.
Basically, the gas tank was ripped off the car. The filler hose was holding the whole thing up, but ripped and an entire tank full of fuel poured out. It's sitting in the driveway until it's warm enough to deal with.
