picked up a spider to part out

A couple of days ago a truck pulled into my driveway. The driver got out and asked me if I wanted another of those POS cars as he glanced over at two of my nicer TR8s. Even thou I was very offended, I kept my composure long enough to pick up a TR7 spider for slightly more than the scrap value of the car. There really isn't much I want from this thing other than the hoard of new rubber parts in the trunk, the newish alternator, master cylinder and the freshly recored rad. A local guy wants the stainless exhaust and the wheels. Anybody need anything before I haul it out of here? The body is rusted and the interior is trashed. I was told it runs, but I'm not going to bother trying to get it running. It has a clean title and spider VIN (wink-wink).

I don't suppose it's the California model with fuel injection? If FI, I would be interested in that.

The PO replaced the seats with stock black ones from a coupe. The passenger side is pretty good. The drivers side has a split at the shoulder. All in all, the interior is trashed. Carpet is a mess, door panels are wavy, shifter boot is falling apart, visors are falling apart, and the steering wheel needs to be redone. Has a black canvas top that is in very good shape. I think I'll save that for the next time I need one. There were new in the package black knee bolsters, pedal pads, door lights, and door window scrapers in the trunk. Good thing, as I need a pair of scrapers for one of my 8s.
