Well just picked it up the $500 parts car. 1986 Dodge Conquest 99,000 miles almost all stock. Heck the front lip the quick-release seat belt the rims and the hood struts well worth the 500. Pretty sure from looking it over the Turbo Shot. Po said it was making noise and lack of power.

I have I have no intentions a parting a car out I bought it for parts
And the car is in very good shape and all there. I do believe the only thing removed from it is the AC condenser and paraphernalia. The only thing the car needs to run. Nothing it runs . But I have no plans to start it or try to drive it until I put a good turbo init . Then I'll take it for a drive and see how it really is . I would say there's a good quarter inch of shaft play on the turbo. I know why the PO said it made horrible noises and had lack of power

As has already been said, save it! Get it road worthy and enjoy it! These things are disappearing fast!

I remember in SoCal 15 years ago I could see them around here and there. In the last 5 years, I have only seen other members cars and its a select few.

Why tear up a complete car that only needs a turbo? Plenty of parts are available used if that's what's needed for the other car.
