This little feller needs saving:

Chassis No 74, and still got the original parts...carello rear lights, interior, metal trim around windshield. Easy to convert RHD to LHD as well...pedal box unit swaps with windshield wiper unit on these early cars.

Quick question. Is 125 psi about normal range? I thought I saw other posts of more on the order of 165 psi?

Car looks pretty interesting for sure. As they say, some assembly required.

This would make a good project

Seems to have a lot of nose badges

Also ride height is high for a early model it must have later model springs
