Previous owner sold because he needed surgery and needed cash. I assume. for costs not covered by insurance. . He is a well respected AH racer and mechanic in the San Diego area and is active in the AH Club there. He also did the RHD Bugeye I have. Remember. these cars are in the desert mountains above Palm Springs. there is no rust cancer spots that go deep. Of course some minor surface belemishes. I know nothing about the mechanicals specs. so I copied exactly what Mr. Pleasant. the mechanic. had in his description The car runs great. drives great. before I stored it in 2009 It has been stored for 5 years. so it will need refreshing before you go to the Vintage racing . This little mighty mite would be so much fun on a Hillclimb event. The car is sold on a bill of sale basis as race cars in the USA usually do not have a motor vehicle ownership certificate.
