Yes, repaint among other things. Not wanting to be critical, but, if this was the family's pride vehicle, as advertised, I don't want a ride in their neglected car. My guess, $345,000 final bid.

The body may actually be in exceptional condition, as far as I could see in the pictures.

The average relative humidity in Lincoln, Ca is around 45%. That could explain the absence of serious corrosion. Now explain how it seems to have defied the effects of gravity over it lifespan..

A real gem, the most basic version, the Normal and without too many accessories.

wow you don't see that very often . An un-restored Speedster where the description actually matches what is being sold ... looks to be one solid original car . very cool . way better condition than that blue one that sold last year .

Perhaps I'm wrong, but does that Engine Number look like a Re Stamp ?

I was interested in that car, and tried to contact the seller via phone several times. I only got an answering service and I never got a response back.... I even tried emailing him through his website.

It would have been nice to be able to present an offer....
