    1972 Tii Swap -- It's rough.

    Morning all,

    I wish my first post was happier, but maybe I can help someone out. My buddy has a 1972 BMW Tii that was languishing in his parent's driveway for ten years. He was going to crush it so I dragged it home. The body is very rough, not salvagable with my limited patience and skills. The engine? I opened the hood, didn't try to turn it over or anything, I am going to oil the cylinders today.

    I am currently building a 1968 Ford Cortina with a Supercharged 3.8 V6. I'm looking for a rearend that I can narrow to 49".

    The Tii is located near Albany, NY, if necessary you can use my trailer to get it home (I want the trailer back). If you're building a Lotus 7 type kit car, this is a decent donor.

    Dan

    Just swapping for an axle I can use. If you want to throw me a shoe box full of 20s that's OK. I have no price, just saving it from destruction.

    Whaddaya got?

    Edit:
    The ideal set up for my project is a Mustang GT 4 lug axle. It would have posi, or posi can be put in, but 4 lug matches the aluminum GT wheels I want to use.

    Morning, sorry for the delay in responses but I had to go to Oklahoma for work.

    Proudabu, I got your PM and I'm interested in the 4-lug axle, but just before leaving someone from Mass. laid claim on the 2002. I haven't heard from him in four days, but if he bails you're up next.

    What do you want to the axle?

    Money talks BS walks, don't wait for me. Sell the axle.

    I'm going to part the car out and find an axle locally; Va. is some distance away. Anything specific you need?

    No problem with brake lines, I expected that. I was more concerned with spending too much time and money at a junk yard chasing parts.

    Keep me posted on your schedule for pick up.

    The car is gone and happily living in Massachusetts.

    Thanks for the inquiries, glad it's making someone happy.
