So I got a ae86 shell sitting into back yard that doesn't have any paperwork. I wanted to restore it and get it road legal again. The thing is I want a race car and this would be a perfect platform. It has no interior and missing a lot of missing exterior parts. Also I plan on buying another car next year so I can prolly get myself a ae86 that's all there to restore. Any advice I'm stuck..

Whats the condition of the shell? Would hate to see a good foundation mangled.............but it is your car, and if papers are a pain might as well just track it.

Don't need papers for a track car. 8)

If your state has a way to get a "bonded" title, that's where I'd start. :tu:

Yeah completely straight shell..that's why its a hard choice. I dont think Washington has bonded regs. I talk to to DMV and they just gave me a ish ton of paper work to do. A lot of history look up and find all the old owners. just seems to be easier to track it

there's a reference to how the body is....right now its a shell no interior or engine, trans, or axle/crossmember

I can't believe I am going to say this, but track it. Nice thing, the coupes are more rigid than the hatches.

Right my gut says track car but my heart and soul say restore....but I could restore it after I rally the French out of it.
