We do not know if this specimen is one of the last with a short wheelbase or one of the first with a long wheelbase, the only thing we know is that it needs a lot of work.
Although, to be honest, the most important work to do on this specimen is to understand which parts are missing: it is in fact the typical case of “I will restore this car with my own hands” which in 90% of cases turns into a lot lost time and a car that has been dismantled and therefore abandoned for years. Certainly there is no transmission because so says the seller.
For the rest, as already mentioned, the car is probably better than it may appear at first glance: the metal seems healthy and certainly, with the bodywork in these conditions, there are no surprises. Obviously, all this does not exclude the fact that this project will still take a lot of time, patience and money. Find it for sale at $18,000 here in Long Beach, CA.
