Interesting perspective of an SVX

I got a wrecked parts car this summer for the rear subframe to resurrect the '97 that I have. I pulled the engine/transmission a month or so ago. This weekend I pulled the one "good" body panel, the RH door, and the rear quarter roll-down glass (curved part was broken already), and set about getting to the rear suspension however I needed to...

It was very odd, when I picked up the car (changed hands at least 3 times since the accident about 10 years ago, so the history is a little foggy), someone had dissassembled the RH suspension to pop the axle out of the diff, and just plain cut the LH axle shaft. When I started disconnecting the driveshaft I realized why, the rear diff is seized solid

Got the exhaust off, dropped the diff with the driveshaft attached, broke loose several of the subframe bolts. Nothing putting up a major fight, yet. Left it soaking in BG penetrating oil. I'm cautiously optimistic on this project.

Interesting approach.

Is the Teal SVX in the background your '97?

Yep, that's the one I hope to get back on the road. Mount for the LH trailing arm is broken off the subframe. Car is pretty rusty, but is a pretty good car otherwise.

Interested to see progress on this. Amazing pics of that hog tied 92.
