Why on earth are you selling - keep it, it's lovely and you know you'll be hard pressed to ever find another as good as this one. If you do sell it you are as mad as a box of frogs.

Mine will not be looking as original as that when it's done - Subaru 2.5 wasserboxer power, custom suspension to make it a fast reliable road car for everyday use. I recon a 3/4 year build.

Or we could just swap? :D

i wish i had the cash, that is absolutely stunning.

without doubt the best looking coupe ever made (well maybe a little bit of doubt!)

good lick with the sale, i hope it is because you have something even better and not because you have to

I don't have to so if it doesn't sell I'll keep it. Its just the wifey and I want a 356 replica and I don't have the space for another classic. :)
