(I am sure I am missing things, will update as I think of them. I have owned the car for so long that I forget some things!)

This is one special car. Probably the only one like in North America. 26R fenders. But let me stress this is not real 26R bodywork, just the fender area added. This allows the
use of 185/60 tires on the front and 205/60 tires on the rear. This car really handles. Full Spyder roll bar with the side impact bars in the sills. This is not a trailer queen sort of car
This car is meant to be driven. One of the most fun cars I have ever owned and it is with great reluctance that I am selling it.

If you ever wanted the 26R look without paying $150,000 plus price for a real 26R, this is it.

Pictures do not show recently painted bonnet. As time progresses I am going to work on the paint of the car. As I do the price will reflect that.

$38,000 as is now, (open to interesting trades)

Car is in Buffalo NY
