Dayum . . . . . .that is rusty. I'm pick'n up a 83 245Ti with the same interior. If you want to sell the arm rest let me know. I have a black leather one, but one to match the interior would be even better. Nice Find ! ! !

I might be interested in the headliner, sunroof liner, sunroof assembly (if it still works) and I definitely need that pedal assembly. Are you interested in parting with these pieces? If so, please PM me.

Thanks!

Rob

ya nice part out! reminds me of when I did mine, I'll have parts all over for the rest of time from that car! Isn't it amazing the multitude of crap that comes off these cars, makes me think twice about taking my 242 apart to begin the restoration process!

Why are all 240s hairy right there? Damn hippies...

Looks like a proper stripping with plenty of good parts.

well my 245 is not harry there, PO must have never cleaned the car there was so much hair that its not funny!!!!!

SwedishBrick242...
04-21-2011, 06:41 PM
Neither of mine were either, but about 90% of the ones at the junkyard look like that. Even if there isn't any elsewhere, you look under its handle; there's hair under there...

how ironic is this? the car came to my house on a U-HAUL trailer and it left on a U-HAUL trailer, called the local junk guys told them that the car had no rear axle and they show up in a U-HAUL trailer and a truck with a winch on the back, i took a photo for proof :-P
