I recently found this early R107 in a South Carolina field. The owner would not part it out and insisted on selling it as a whole. It is beyond saving as the rust has taken it's toll. However, it still has quite a few good parts to keep other R107s on the road. I have taken some parts that I need for my own projects and will be sending it to the crusher shortly. I am not looking to make money, just trying to recoup some of the cost of purchasing/towing. Let me know if you need anything.

Is the instrument cluster in good shape?
How about the headlight assemblies?
Is the radiator solid or does it leak? How corroded is the radiator?
Where are you in relation to Wisconsin?

The engine in the '73 is already gone, but after I finish the engine swap on my '75, I will have that motor available. It is in good running shape and it is currently my daily driver. I just don't know if it is worth shipping it to CA.

Will you be cutting this up soon. I could use the complete center tunnel area.

There is a plate that goes between the muffler and drive shaft. Its about 3 ft long and the tunnel is welded to it. I need that plate and tunnel and about 6" of floor to either side of the plate, and all the parking brake brackets that attach to the tunnel and plate. I am sill interested in those seat rails when you get some time.

I apologize to all of those who inquired about parts on this car. Unfortunately I had some serious medical issues and had to put the rest of my life on hold for a while. I am back now and just started to sort out through the parts I managed to remove from the car and store. The rest of the car is gone.

Curiously this particular car came with only a driver side mirror and a cover plate where passenger mirror should be. I don't know if this might have been an option on early imports or if this was originally a Euro model.

I might have some seat parts in one of the boxes. Is this the elbow plate that connects and articulates bottom and back part of the seat?

I started to go through the boxes of parts this weekend and took some pictures. I still have quite a bit of stuff to sort through and will be posting the pictures as I do. I also added a few of the spares that I don't need any more so let me know if there is anything you are interested in and I can take more detailed photos. The last photo is of passenger side exhaust manifold.
