I think I saw that on Ebay last week, must not have sold. Good find though, you can't beat free!

Looks like a good shell, everything looks straight and sold, now you're just gonna have to find a good motor and drivetrain for it.

I'm not sure if the car had the trans in it anyways? Certainly doesn't look like it, the only reason you can't tow an AWD like that is because it will tear up the Viscous coupler, if the trans isn't in it then there is obviously no fear of that, or as 2G6 said just unhook the driveshaft.

Re: my free gsx shell

or its a shell... hince no engine, tranny, or tcase... but we did disconnect the driveshaft so it would flop and wobble around on the way home

Shouldn't that be the other way around?

Re: my free gsx shell

I'd definitely use that as a shell to build up, rather then parts. I dont see much rust on that car anywhere. Thats pretty rare with these cars. Usually you rip the rocker moldings off and find rotted out quarter panels, but that car looks damn clean. As long as it has a dash, and none of the wiring harnesses are ripped out, etc I'd build that sucker right up. Very solid looking shell.

Re: my free gsx shell

yea the dash is there, but its tan:mad: but im not going to complain... and the only rust i have seen so far is on that front fender which is easily replacable. and there is some minor surface rust where the backseat used to be b/c of that broken window.

just an update, i went and picked up a motor last night for 200 from a local dsmer buddy of mine. Its a 90 6 bolt, with oil cooler, 2g ported ex mani, 1g intake mani, and other odds and ins
