    1gee eBay and Craigslist Finds

    I'm starting a thread that we can dedicate to finds on eBay and Craigslist. This is a sticky thread. I thought it would be cool to just keep track of them in here. Preferably, take a screenshot and post it for when the ad goes down later.

    Good idea man!
    Darn it, I would buy that silver one today as a parts car if it was by LA!
    Keep up the good work!

    Re: 1gee eBay and Craigslist Finds

    Hey 2gen, how far are you from Marysville?...lol
    I'm seriously thinking of coming up and bringing that '79 back to LA as a doner car for the '77 restoration.
    Only thing that bugs me is that it has the changes from '78 to '79 which make it not completely compatible engine wise.
    My engine/mechanicals are good though so I'm kicking it around.
    If it has zero rust/dents and the interior is good......it could be worth it.
    The stuff I need ie. roof, hood, fenders, hatch, dash, bumpers, cowl, side markers and taillight internal (not outside) should be the same.
    I might call the guy and see what he says.

    It's going to be iffy on the fenders and hood actually fitting. Like 79Cord said in the other thread, they made just slight minor changes to every little detail on the car year by year. The 78 and 79 might be compatible or close, but it's hard to say for sure. Might be usable.

    I would be 98% certain you could drop that whole engine into your car though. Just make sure to use your transmission on that block. People swap around Civic, Prelude and Accord trannys from what I've seen all the time. You'd need everything off that motor, black boxes and all though. Probably will still be some minor differences, maybe throttle linkage, fuel line locations, minor things like that.

    If you do decide you're interested, I might be able to arrange a time to go look at it. It's about 100 miles away, so do your research and make sure you're certain you want this parts car. I can give you the final stamp of approval.

    I guarantee, though that if you're patient, we can find you an actual '77 with decent donor parts. Rust is pretty minimal here, despite all the rain we get. We have salt-free roads here, so cancer is usually minor. I've been trying so hard the last few months to get some free time to head up towards Seattle, as I hear rumor there is a yard with at least 10 1g Accords and some 1g Preludes as well. I'd love to go get all sorts of goodie bits and check them out!!! And hook people up with parts who could use them!

    Thanks.
    I was under the impression that the hood and fender metal was the same, just the trim pieces were different and could be put on from the '77. Maybe not.
    I'll have to find a '79 around here to compare to. The other reason I liked that
    one was the silver color which would be easier to prep and paint vs. a full color change etc.
    and I could use the black dash, door panels, plastic trim pieces, carpet etc.
    In California, I can't change the engine comfortably because I risk them discovering it's an engine swap to a different model which would be smog illegal.
    I called the guy but he hasn't set up his voice mail yet....lol....I'm still trying to contact him.
    Thanks for the offer, I'll be sure it's the car first. I might just fly up to see it as I can fly for no cost.

    Re: 1gee eBay and Craigslist Finds

    I would if I only had a place to put it man. If I had the room, I'd have a ton of 1geez and parts cars hanging out. Just can't leave em in the field and let them rust away, it would be just as much of a travesty. The mice out here will destroy a car in no time. I just need to rent a big ass barn somewhere to start stashing my stable cars.

    Ooioh yeah I saw that thing. He had the blank camshaft didn't he? It was a factory uncut camshaft. Man I would never have the damn thing grinded down because i'd be scared it would be a shitty grind. And then it's ruined! I'd put it on a shelf lol.

    Ah I don't really remember. It was too far away (though I guess I could have snagged them on the way through this week) and I assumed he wasn't going to separate them. But I suppose asking wouldn't have hurt!
