@zelensis61, wow :shock: :d good to know I'm not the only collecting rust :lol:

Are you planning on restoring that one?

Had a few minutes with the '57, it looks like it is a US version after all, tried to find the semaphores, but there were no signs of welding.

Saturday I’m going to fire up the engine, already added fresh oil, just need to change the spark plugs and some minor stuff.

Had a few hours free today, so we decided to see if the engine of the '57 wanted to run...

Petrol, a bit of new oil, clean up the distriduitor and spark plugs and fire it up!

Made a small movie :wink:

This chassis is going to a friend of mine that has a '57 as well but with no Papers, so his body will fit on this chassis.

Probably for the best! That was a pretty scary looking project.
