75 Body Parts Availability.

So, I've been looking at some photos of a 75. It's a V6, so in my mind worth saving. Yes, I'm cylinder-ist when it comes to cars.

It's utterly knackered. Front end is merely frightening, but the back end is gone. If it was a modern car, you'd cut both rear wings off, most of the inner wheel arches and put new parts on. Same for the boot floor. I'm not scared of welding, but making external body parts that don't look pants is beyond me. Internal stuff (boot floor etc) I am happy to fabricate.

If the parts are available I might consider getting it, sticking it in dry storage and then having a go when I've finished the GTA.

So, what's the score with these? (Ideally convince me that this is a silly idea....)

It's a great idea! Most body parts are available in Europe, also there's a great IMSAF(?) wheel arch extension kit that would nicely disguise any dodgy welds!
Am sure there are some links on here?

Here in Bulgaria, there's a 75 apparently being sold for parts, see this ad -
Alfa Romeo 75 2.0 карбуратор
Vendor provides a helpful listing of parts with prices. As a f'instance, 'преден капак' (preden kapak) = bonnet @ 50 leva or roughly GBP22. Same price for the boot lid (заден капак).

Also, as it happens, there's a dead 75 2.0 in the yard of the Alfa specialist service I use here in Sofia, interior partially stripped out but body intact and, as I recall, in good nick. Don't know their intentions but could find out.

Did you end up buying it? If so, please post some photographs of the work you intend to carry out.
Thanks.

If the engine bulkhead has rusted through then it is pretty terminal unless you are a brilliant welder happy to spend many an hour welding up the car. from what your describe, the rest of the car sounds quite challenging on its own, rust wise.
