    Wanted R15/17 car or pieces

    Hi All,

    As you all know I have R15 that I am doing up at the moment.

    I am after bits and pieces that people may not want from cars they have or may have had.

    I would be interested in a complete car, only if it is straight body wise.

    Can anyone help?

    we're wrecking quite a few 15/17's Luke so anything you need give me a ring at French Connection 03 9338 8191. Also there is a possibility of a complete R15 coming up through the car club but from what I told it's to good to wreck.

    Hi David,

    If I can find a decent 15 or 17 I will do it up instead of the one I have now.
    The problem with the car I have now is that is was in a "front-ender" and the front RHS has been pushed back about 3 inches or so. There for nothing fits properly. I need the front chassis piece to make it any good. It does have a good interior/engine gearbox etc. Any Ideas? I think I can probably get the front section welded if I can get one from a spare or wreck.

    The only problem with the 15 that is coming up is that I am in Canberra - a long way from melbourne.

    Thanks again

    Luke

    Hi Luke

    Don't know if you'll be interested, but I'm trying to sell a 17TL. Bodywork, is sound. Also have a spare engine and gearbox, plus some bumper parts. Unfortunately, I'm even further away than Melbourne; PERTH.!!

    Still, it's here if you're interested.

    Cheers Terry.

    Hi Luke,
    I think,(although I'm not sure) that 15 is coming up in our club mag next week, getting a car to Canberra is no problem these days with cheep air fare, I'd fly down and drive it back, you'll be home in time for tea.

    Thanks Guys

    I appreciate all the help.
    Dave I will give you a call in the next few days and discuss the bits I need for my current R15. I am tossing the idea of doing this car up or getting another with less work to do.

    Regards

    Luke

    Oh, I shall check the car out in Just Cars, a bit pricey for me though - It would want to be in excellent condition. I paid $50 for my current R15!

    Realistically, probably best to look for a car that is already in good condition. Especially as good 15's seem quite cheap in comparison to spending on doing one up, like rebuilding an engine, knocking out rust and giving the car a respray.

    There was a 15 here in Adelaide supposedly low k's, original metallic green etc for $5K. Sure it sounds a lot, but I'm sure there may be space to haggle if it hasn't sold by now.

    Hi Ash,
    I don't know who'd be driving an unregistered R15 half way across the country, was funny when the cop stopped us just near the QLD boarder, he thought we were doing something wrong, can't understand what. The seller thought we were mad also, he was worried weather it would start let alone get to Melbourne as I was fitting a set of second hand brake pads to it so we could get out of his street. The point is, is easy these days getting a car from interstate, Melb to Bris on Virgin air was only $80, bus to Sushine coast $20, a few tanks of fuel and 2 nights staying in caravan parks and we're home. I'd do it again tomorrow if I had to.
