  • Wanted: Doner shell

    I'm looking for a shell or even just a nose, from the A pillars forward, to cut up and use as a template. Any year, any condition as long as the subframe mounting points are close to where they should be and the firewall is intact. No VIN needed.

    Thanks, Tom

                    I do have a roof cut through the post that is for a later mini. Rear side glass doesn't line up. If I had a different one that I could de-skin from the bottem up so all I am working with is a skin then I wouldn't mess the one I already have should some one else need it.

                        The roof that I need is for my 1966 S mk 1. The roof that is there has a folding soft top and thats not what I want, Tell me what you need for it.

                          Tim, The top I have was torched off about 1/2" above the gutter, also to replace a sunroofed top. Any use to you? Don

                            Now that we've thoroughly drifted Tom's posting I've started a new one under For Sale. Dismantle that '76. See you there! Don

                              Don,
                              So if the roof was cut off about a half inch above the gutter... wouldn't that make it gone?
