Nothing small enough to ship lol, The AMG Galant wheels were one of the first things sold lol. A lot got sold locally and spare parts I had like a fuel tank is going into my Coupe. Only things left are, the seats and the grill. I traded my jdm bumper and fogs for a R154.

Dang - what do you want for the grille? Oddly, that is actually one of the parts that I need! You sure you are hiding any other VR4 gems under the work bench / stairs / shed ? :)

I'll check the condition, but I think it had broken tabs, currently sitting in the trunk of the wagon lol.

Hell will freeze over before I let the badge go lol.

lol - you can keep the badge! I just want the grille! Check it out and let me know. I may still be interested depending on how many tabs are busted off.

Rotted for my tastes, it was a PA car I found in SC. Front wheel wells, fenders, frame rails for front, fuel tank rusted enough it was leaking, Ethanol in the fuel was finding all the holes for me and clogging the filter (new filter every few weeks), 14" hole in trunk floor behind left wheel well. Trans was actually supporting the trans crossmember, brake line from master to rear leaking (found out after stripping it).

I kept the doors, hatch, seats, grill, front bumper, engine obviously, tail lights, dash, and front control arms. Sold off the front harness (includes under dash and fuse box), instrument cluster, hatch trim, cluster gauges. The 75 was a more solid car for me and a manual (would have needed to find or get a shaft made for a manual swap), plus now I have spare parts for both the red wagon and my Coupe (needed a new dash).
