Cheap tercel

This forum is for cars that run, or at least are close to running. This isn't for parting out complete cars.

I got one of the two"cheep" Tercel's yesterday it's a complete car for the most part.
I personally do not want to rebuild this car my life has just become to busy!
The other (white) car has to much damage and will never see the road again but has a lot of good stuff on it so I agreed to buy it.
I really need to recover some of the money I have into these cars so parts parts parts.(I scored two inclometers in this deal)
On this trip I needed to drive my sisters old Honda crx back to Reno so my 17 year old daughter towed the Tercel on the dolly.
She did a great job and i'm a VERY PROUD PAPA :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Nice find I know I will be grabbing some parts from you. How much for a carb and a dissy my dissy's vac advance isn't working so a spare would be good.

My experience has shown that used vacuum advances almost never work!

Might just have to order a new one then but a spare dissy should still come in handy

Good work! That white one looks pretty smart on one side but pity about the damage. would you sell an inclometer to me in Aus (even without the shroud is cool)?

If anyone picks up that white car for parts, I'd like the wheels. I have some parts I could trade to make a deal workable.
