Look what the cat dragged in today! Well, not the cat, it was a Kia with trailer.
A 1983 Fb, body not that bad, some rust on the underside, running engine. Original color-code is R3, now in a epoxy-primer directly on te clear-coate! Who's idea was that?
Car wil be stripped to a bare shell, and completely re-biuld.

I like it as it is :D looks to be an interesting project, you doing the work yourself or getting a bodyshop to do it?

Whats the plans original or modified? Hows the mechanicals?

Wouldn't mind knowing the Reg and a rough location if it's a UK / Eire car.
PM me if you don't want Reg to appear on the Forum.

All the best

The car is from Holland, so LHD.
i will be doing all the work myself, just like i did with the 929. Will try to be as original as possible, only the exhoust shall be a Racing-beat, i think.
Two year project i gess, just like the 929 was.
Updates will follow.

Rust, rust and more rust...meaning a lot of work! I was looking for some Hitchcock movie-sounds to go with the pic's.
