Nice little coupe


An idea doesn't work unless you do.

Hey Doug ,

the car is super cool......has a good story , but I know for me ( just speaking for myself) the fender flares are a deal killer....I kinda wish it would have just been left alone ..Super nice factory sheet metal should have been left alone

Yes, Rick

I feel the same way, as it was such an original survivor. But a 1200 with no rust to repair, will save someone a few dollars in body work!

Flares are the first thing I would have done too...    :rofl:


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Don't get me wrong , it's a cool car . Just once you've flared it that's it .

I just really like a stock body. When I found the damage on my car I thought about flaring it , but couldn't bring myself to cut 2 new NOS fenders and a fairly clean drivers quarter for some damage on the passenger side.

Your right, finding one in rust free shape will put somebody miles ahead,( ask me how i know). If you can get the car for a decent price , Im sure there is money to be made    ( we've all seen the prices rising on these little beasts lately)

Same here.  If someone likes flares, I totally respect it. 

 

I would pass on buying it because of them.

If this car is possibly for sale send me a PM with the info. I've been looking for a local 1200 for a while.
