jamesqf -- Oh yes. That Tulipwood body is really set off by the copper gravel guard. I guess it's too much to hope that it's a dry sump oil tank.

Here's what I've been able to hold onto since the money stopped rolling in. The model was made around 1995. I still have it—or most of it.



I bought the donor car later. It had been baja'd, but included the front and rear lids. That saved me having to take a Saw-Z-All to the '58 valances. The top is even the right color!



The model had a Porsche 4-cam Carerra engine. The drivetrain I have available right now is a 0-miles 1776cc engine and a used 5-speed transaxle. I'm talking to MPaulHolmes in the Fossil Free Fuel subforum about an AC electric conversion. If that doesn't go into a more road-ready donor car it could go into into this.
