Yeah those taillights look ridiculous, one of my main peeves is horrible taillight location. His ad tells so much about the motor he forgot to mention that it leaks oil. The car does have a nice stance though.

^^er, that's not a twin solex carb engine as described (1200cc type 3?)...and note how the spark plug leads go through the fan shroud to create a nice hot spot...
the interior and frunk upholstery best left unsaid.

It also looks like the wrong front hood with a welded in badge area. Otherwise it seems like a reasonable price for what you get.

Have prices on kabrios risen that much during the pandemic? What are decent completed examples going for these days?
