That folding rear panel is all aluminium. As is the bonnet (hood) the rest is steel. Heater tubes running through the spine. The electronics are way too complicated.

Yes itís a strange one for sure, but back in 1970 it must have looked quite the part. And still does. Itís actually proportioned very well. Pop up lights are a later mod that needs deleting. As is the slammed narrow beam.
