Default Temporary availability!

So I came across a shop that is parting out a 1982 automatic. The car appears to be European (please correct me if I am mistaken) and I have pirated several interior and exterior parts. I see that the body is in great shape and promised the shop owner (Jim) that I would spread the word on his offering.
The name of the shop is "Over The Edge Automotive" and they are in Orange, Ct. off of Rt. 95 exit 41. Aside from the seats, engine, and transmission, anything else you see missing from the car is in my hands. Look at the door panels and their interior handles. Only one broken tab.....
Go get some.

Radio could be worth more than the car. What model was it?

Did Jim indicate if he was able to ship any parts?

I think you are correct in thinking its a Euro (RoW) car. Turn signal repeaters behind the front wheels, rear fog light and the 'el cheapo' corner markers are all typical.

I think it has H4 headlights. And maybe even Euro fog/driving lights (and the frames for them). Those together are worth more than the whole car. Maybe even as much as the radio.

Edit to add:
Headlight adjuster **** next to the parking brake handle is also a Euro identifier.

Google the shop for the number. Ask specifically for Jim and tell him that you were put on to the car by Walt. He will most likely ship but from the looks of his ultra-busy shop, it might take a while. Call him, he's a good dude.

Hello all, The engine, spoilers, H4s, and all of the euro lights, fuse panel, front bumper cover, gages and pod and a few other bits have already been purchased (last week) by me and are being picked up tomorrow. Sorry if this spoils anyones fun.
Thanks,
Bob

I had inquired about the pod. Now I know why I never heard back. Curious, though, what condition is it in?
