What does every shitty Glas GT project need? That’s right. A parts car. I placed notices around here and there on forums for a parts car and sure enough, one turned up. This car is a very very late in the production run car, and very very rusty. Money was slight -almost trivial really, and it has that ‘ran when parked’ look to it, though it’s been a while. I spent most of my day taking it apart. Viva la full set of rims!
Yea -or is that yikes? The good? It’s all there. The bad, it’s 200 pounds lighter than a stock Glas GT due to metal loss on the underside. The ugly? It was a low miles nice original car before it fell into the wrong hands.
You could reach through there and tickle the drivers toes. Yep -that’s a P. Frua badge.
It really is a shame. This car has 53,000 miles and ran less than 10 years ago if the modern spark plugs and abundance of coolant are any indication. This is a good color for one of these.
Dash and steering wheel are pretty good. Moss is growing on the floor boards. I get the feeling that the rust is all recent activity.
This looks crap. I sort of gave up enthusiasm then decided to pop the valve cover off.
I was amazed that the inside of the engine was VERY clean. Spotless really. I did a leak down and got nothing, but with 53,000 miles, this crank is not likely to need bearings or anything…
Look at that tasty clutch disk.
I am left to wonder what happened here. A totally good looking, low mileage car is left to rot for some reason. I can’t find a fault in the engine other than neglect. Maybe it was parked due to the abundance of rust?? It was in Washington after all.
