Default 1978 Euro

In like Flynn......

Another Minerva Blau 78 Euro in the mix...

Just needs a few things....tires, those P7's just did not hold up

insured as recently as 2010.....mostly complete

A true Junk yard find...I'm talking forklift....some damage...meh

You know I do not care.....lots of patina

Good fall, winter ,spring ,summer project...ready for Frenzy.....!

I know 11 months is really pushing it.......

Yeah I know the headlights are US.....look pretty new

I'll get some H4's one day........

How can you put a time frame on a survivor....

Come by and take a look ......

Cheers, Kevin

Gotta luv to see another save. And right from the jaws of certain death(or at least picked clean).

Well done sir, and good on ya. I think it's a bit too much on the 'patina' scale, might have to toss a bit of Glasurit on there. But - the pasha is outstanding.

I wouldn't do a damn thing to the exterior other than to put some rust sealer on the bald patches. The existing paint is a work of art! What the Japanese call 'wabi-sabi'.

I'll be looking for a road trip soon just to stretch Stitch's legs...

There's something very poetic about this save.

I'm with Shawn... love the patina!

I dont see a seriously extensive project here. We could have it running this weekend!

Great news its being saved, and by Kevin too - so we can expect to hear about it as it gets done.

Whats the VIN number? Looks earlyish but not super-early to me (has early door vents, but not the really early lock actuators). Nice to see the fenders weren't chopped to federalise it.

Interesting - has body-colored front grill slats too, along with beading on the rear bumper (altho given its detached, the beading might not be original).
