Price-$12,000.00- complete package for everything I have to put the car together, plus spares, plus the second body. ($10,000.00 without the engine and transmission.) OK, I know its a lot of money for a car that is apart, but you couldn't buy another one and get it to this point for twice the price. I know, I've got nearly $24K in receipts, not to mention the time. And I doubt you could find half the parts I have as I've been collecting them for over 25 years.
I have tons of pictures I will email to anyone interested. I am working on getting them uploaded to a folder here at the HAMB.
A few more pics.
