    They tick my box. How much to put the body (& chassis?) right on that I wonder?

    Yes, that what I was imagining. It's the 2nd time that has been up for sale too within the last six months or so...

    If anyone is thinking of using them, I'd recommend a wee bit of research first. Check the GWOA board.

    I think these are well worth saving, it might cost a bit to get it right but I'm sure there will be a strong classic market for these in the near future. I would love a nice simple one like this that has not been given the footballer facelift.

    Agree well worth saving. Particularly if you have the right skills as they can be a pricey project.

    The engines in these are crap. Unless you add a turbo or change it for a 606.

    Re-arrange this well known phrase or saying: pudding - pull - skin - rice - couldn't...etc.
