 I bought this car a few years ago in boxes.   It is now very drivable and it is a blast!  My knees gave out and I will not be able to finish the restoration.   The interior is a blank canvas.   Most of the wiring is working but could use some more work.

The body is painted in Gold Leaf colors.   It was a show quality paint job twenty years ago.   But time and storage mishaps have caused some damage.   A few scratches.   Some bubbles on the rear deck lid.   A small hole in the passenger side sill where it was strapped down for transportation.   But the good news is that there are NO stress cracks.   It looks awesome from 10 feet.

The frame was completely restored and has NO rust.

Engine was professionally rebuilt with go fast goodies such as Carrillo Racing Rods and a widened oil sump.   Header exhaust system.   Rebuilt carbs with electric fuel pump.   The water pump weeps.   I have not hooked up the choke or balanced the carbs.

Radiator rodded and pressure tested.   The hole for the otter switch was sealed so no leaks.

Brand new aluminum gas tanks.

Windshield removed and replaced with Urethane so no leaks.

Nissan F10 Master Cylinder with all new or refreshed brake parts.

Freshened transmission.   The right side seal leaks a little.   New U joints.

New tires with restored wheels (five).

New adjustable coil over shocks.

Door hinges have NO rust.

Lots of spare parts still in boxes so shipping is up to the buyer.  

I want the buyer to be thrilled with the car so feel free to ask questions.   The restoration started over twenty years ago.   I have only had it three years.   Because it has been off the road and in climate controlled storage it is in much better shape than the average Europa.
