Notice my sig. line...?

It's true... I have too many project-grade '74's...

Depending on which one, and what is/is not included, you could be spending from $400 to $1000 or more, prior to whatever form of shipping/transport you arrange.

How about a two-fer deal...?

I'm located in Eugene, OR.

Sorry -- no running 13B's included at that price. I do have a few correct 4-port 13B cores, though... etc., etc., etc. ;)

I have a red 74REPU that runs well with only about 15k on a fresh 13B. Exterior is good, but there's a sideswipe on the driverside. Interior is good but dash is a little rickety. Good truck. Flys on the highwway. I only use it every couple months. I'd let it go to the right person for $1500.

Dang, Bliffle!

That's like 'buy the engine/trans. - get a free REPU'!

Who built that engine? What all is non-stock? 5-speed?

Condition of frontend/brakes/rubber? How bad is the sideswipe?

Check out mine if a cosmetic only restore is down your alley. Best fix is my mechanicals in one of Klaus's bodies, but a good body man could do it as a project. Great engine, transmission, all running gear, rough body with all trim intact and a set of factory wheels, hubs, (rare) trim rings, etc. with tires, plus the set of aftermarket wheels on it.
$1000.00 firm. Engine is worth that...
90 miles north of Klaus in OR

Hey Klaus, is one of your bodies stripped but rust free? Maybe we could give him a package and he could tow it home with mine....

Nothing is 100% ...

...'rust free', honestly... but, I do have one or two 'better' contenders for restoration in that regard.

Heck yeah, your motor is worth that! If I had a real shop to put 'em in... (and some more funds)... I'd be all over it for just that reason, myself!

I still would like to see more get fixed up as drivers, if not all-out restored... as opposed to me ripping 'em apart for parts...

I'm in Northern CA, SF peninsula. Los Altos, in fact. 94022.

Maybe I'll get a pic this weekend. The sideswipe is nothing: I didn't even consider it when I bought the truck a few years ago. Two panels (door and rear quarter) with only a depressed crease/stretch. Any decent shadetree bodyman can fix it with a puller and some filler (Bondo) or even transplant some JY panels. Even the paint on this 34 yr. old REPU will shine up good. All the emblems and even the tailgate "Rotary Power" are intact. Original gas cap and Mazda key! Windshield cracked.

The warranty book for the engine says it's a Mazda factory rebuild. About 15k on it. Runs like a deer! Original 4speed transmission: No whines or chatter.

Top of the dash is tatty, but headliner and seat covers are recent and very well done. OEM radio is nonfunctional and not hooked up.

I'll throw in the RB header, diamondplate toolbox, Monza muffler and RX-7 electronic distributor (also the extra points/condensors for the OEM distributor).

I had the radiator rodded and re-soldered. Changed transmission and diff to Redline lubes (how sweet it is!).

I'm not exactly eager to sell this truck since I still use it every few weeks and the bluebook value is far below it's replacement value to me. And I WILL NOT sell it to any idiot who wants to chop and channel it and install underside lights! This REPU is much closer to stock restore than parting out or hotrodding for cyclo-cross! Will only sell it to a better home, just like the guy who sold it to me.

Vintage, I'm sorry, but...

I, too, can tear things apart and sell parts for much more than whole. Why would I do it for less, unless sold as a whole? Sorry, but if I end up parting, I'll keep my first (and likely second) picks of everything... and sell the other parts myself. I didn't come this far collecting 'em to throw anything away, or take a loss -- or to not get my pick of parts.

I'd *still* rather see more back on the road, though.

bliffle -- Glad to hear it! Sounds like a deal...
