I had a body shop do the restoration because I am not a metal man I prefer electronics.
I actually had to use a second truck for parts due to the age and damage from vandalism.
It is the stock clamatis blue has a stock 1.8 l motor rebuilt (bored 30 over), stock 4 speed manual rebuilt.
It does have the 5 inch tail lights but I found them in LED (have not put the stock lenses yet)
The interior (seat, door panels,and arm rests) were recovered (custom)

I'm debating painting mine. Could you give us a rough idea on the paint and seat cost?

Thanks
