    1976 Scorpion Available

    ok, let's try this again. I own three scorpions. I want to sell one of them. I am not going to part it out, it has more going for it than that. I am not a body work specialist. If I were, I would not hesitate to redo this car. However, one of my cars is in perfect condition and has NEVER had any rust. Therefore, that is the car I intend to spend my efforts on. This car deserves someone who is willing to bring it back. What it has to offer:

    upgraded brake system (RX7 turbo)
    great windshield
    all trim
    good transmission
    operating electric windows
    shift linkage modified for 2.0l FI system
    almost perfect body panels
    clean gas tank
    good hood
    seats with good adjustment handles
    good engine cover
    winshield wiper motor and arms (removed but operating)

    the bad:
    rust under battery
    rust in corner of trunk under battery
    no soft top roof
    Some bubbled areas under paint
    1800 engine turns and out of vehicle but not running

    i will present things worse than they are if I see problems because I'd prefer a smooth transaction. Someone could get into a Scorpion at a low cost and have a nice car if they were at all capable and willing to do the work.

    $1600

    I only have the one set. If I decide to part out the car I may be able to help. I would prefer to sell the car as is though.

    When you say the shift linkage was modified for the 2.0 FI system, is that because it had the FI system on it at one point?
    I really need a $500 rusty Beta to turn into an italian track car.
    Current Lancias:
    1981 Beta Zagato
    1979 Beta Zagato

    Yes, it had a megasquirt system from the 80’s. The software was no longer available, the new software was not comparable, and the solid state electrical panel had water damage. The injectors were oversized and the throttle body was modified from a different manufacturer. I had done none of the work to get it to that point. Therefore the fastest way to a running and driving car was to take it back to a carburetor.

    if you Want an original shift linkage, I have 7 or 8 spares of which one could be swapped.

    Bob,
    If the seller of the Scorpion (Djscharer) does not want to part out his car, as his ad states, I still have new lamps, and used are not a problem.
    Just search my web store under 4421223 & 4421222.
