Windshield was crap and I didn't want to bother with hanging onto the rear glass until someone wanted it... Too big and probably not enough money to make it worth the hassle.

It was a clean shell and it is a shame. Nobody wanted to pay decent money for it and I was not about to loose thousands to sell it as whole.

Yeah, it is very common with these cars. I still have the engine in my garage and will hopefully rebuild it.

At the very least it was a lot of fun! I did reach my goal and I still have a lot of parts left to sell. It took about a month to completely strip it and I pretty much only worked on the weekends.

Having a double garage would have made it much easier then rolling it out onto my driveway when I wanted to work on it... And the neighbours were not too happy to say the least!

Too late it's already scrapped. That picture was from the day it got picked up. I tried to sell the shell but nobody was really interested and I couldn't hang onto it anymore... Needed the garage space.
