This was my late wife's car and it was driven into the garage in 1997 with the intention of restoring it to it's former glory at a later date. For many reasons, including a few of the usual(work, time, kids, college etc) this did not happen.
The front end damage resulted from the steering locking while towing it 200 yards between garages 9 years ago.
Recently we pushed it out of storage and the engine is free, the clutch disengages, all gears select and the steering is fine. We did not attempt to start it.
The bad points: The front end damage. All the floor panels are badly rusted. The top mounting points for the front shock absorbers need work. The bottom of the N/ S A post looks like it needs work so I would assume the O/ S is similar. The bottom trailing edge of the rear wings. Small areas of the bottom edge of the door skins. I do not have a lift so I cannot give a proper detailed assement.
The good points: The car is complete except for a few small items. Nothing was taken off it after it went into storage. The bodywork is solid with no rust on the upper body. Bonnet and boot lid are perfert. Door frames show no rust. The boot is solid with some rust, mostly surface. The interior is all there. The soft top is good for renovation and the hard top is very good with excellent headlining.
It is not often that a 404 Cabrio for restoration as complete as this ( it even has it's original jack and wheelbrace) comes up for sale, much less with an original factory hardtop.
I drove this car many times and it was a joy, and whilst I would love to put it back on the road myself, I know it's not going to happen so it's time to move it on to someone who will.
I have many more photos that I can email on request.
