only after painstaking research when building mine, which often makes zwitters so unique, and so wonderful when you see a really good restoration.
Not picking on Randy, just a buyer who might pay that much for a car might want to know what's not right if they expect a fine restoration

odd that there's that much gap under the seat back when mating to the bottom? That stitching doesn't line up well, so maybe the backrest isn't straight?

it was bugging me too that when flipped up to see the battery (why you'd weld a bolt in the wrong spot to hold an optima battery rather than a correct 6 volt battery??) that the springs on the underside are from a later seat bottom. (which is why it might fit so poorly?) Should be all coil springs, not the zig zag type. (and the paint runs on the tunnel are a nice touch too for a $75K car)

looks like a non-screw connector key (ignition switch) really wrong.
the ashtray looks like a later version too?

and you can buy these semaphore "accessory lights" https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Vtg-semaphore-replacement-...1581239085
for about $100

where a real set for correct restoration runs $1000-$1500 for nice ribbed or grooved ones. To get this car "correct' is probably $10k to fix as the missing parts are all expensive

Pre49 tubes are shorter than later. And have only one curve, when later has 4 curves! And the first curve radius is different between them:

Mika thank you for assisting me. Looking at your picture and comparing with my filler, I come to the ascertainment that the curve of the tube of my filler is like that of the later one.
So my filler has been shortened, you may call it a hack.
I will mention this in my ad and will lower the price ('Confused') ('Very Happy')

Thanks, I did not know that.
I had emailed the seller so I am glad you contacted him too
