Mats new BF

Ok so the other week i was trolling thru Ebay and found this Mazda 323 BF for sale. after a few drinks i may have placed a bid on it. long story short i know own a 5 door 323 BF.

so the car was listed on Ebay to have a 1.3 carbie motor and a 4 speed manual box. So i wasnt to fussed about this as i was thinking about putting a BP or FE3 or F8 in it. But when i went to pick up the car i noticed it had a 1.6 carbie motor, a 5 speed box, 4 wheel disc brakes, mags, good tires. so i bought it. The interior has seen better days but thats ok for now. cool thing is it DRIVES i drove it on and off the trailer and even around the block. everything works haha

after asking the original owner why he was selling it, he told me it was his son's car and was sick of it out the front of his ouse so he gave his son till 2014 to get it running.. So yer that never happened haha

Anyway the car came with a boot load of spare parts like 2xcarbies, 1x head, 2x intake manifolds, new parker lends, exhaust, wheel, and a few other little things.

Also the old owner used to use theis car for Autocross racing (hence the mudflaps) but the bod is in great shap.. only to small spots of rust which i'll take care off very soon to stop the canser from spreading.

so here is some pictures of the new beast



P.S. best $200 car i have ever bought

Yer it will be. just need to find a doner motor. altho over the course of the day i have been thinking, what would it actually take to get this thing rego'd.. or at least rally rego.. then i could drive it around all the time and just tho a new motor in it later on.

SO finally got around to going thru the spare parts that came with the car. i was wrong, the car came with the following items

2x carbies
2x intake manifolds
4x starters (YES 4 )
2x sets of leads
1x parker for a mazda but not a 323 BF
2x dizzies

so now that question is what do i do with all these parts

UPDATE TIME

so i talked to my mechanic. he had a look at the car and there is just 2 small things i need to do to get ready for a roadworthy

In the last couple of weeks i have been collecting parts for this little beast. I have installed a set of BA hatch front seats to replaced the distroyed bf seats.

Im also on the hunt for a rear drivers tail light and a bf speedo cluster with a tacho.

ALSO i went thru all my parts and i found a full engine loom, ecu, dizzy, ETC from my BA when i was running the stock BP NA. so going to freashin up a bp i have here and bolt that ba3tard in. lets hope when i bolt it in it doesnt blow up the gearbox haha.

will thro up some pitures soon.
