It is a beautiful car.
But I am wondering, . . . . . .
$30K, and no bottom engine shrouds and T-stats ? ? ?
So close, and yet they stopped right there?

That always bugs me too. I know they run cooler in hot weather with out but i think they look cleaner with shrouds.

Okay, but I am still unsure about why leaving them off.
To me, Resto-mod means, done correctly, with some modern modifications
What does fair weather have to do with properly warming up a car?
To each his own.
It just seems to me that a $30K car should have the engine "finished".
Since I can not afford it, and will not be buying it, I will just back out of this and keep quiet.eye rolling smiley

While I am not a fan of huge exhaust tips, those tailpipes look pretty ridiculously small. Reminds me of old VW tailpipes, only longer...

Wowser! that is one heck of a restomod, and the asking price is quite reasonable in my opinion, once you figure that the paint could easily have cost
10 to 15k. Yes, there's slight bugs, but those are things common on high end stuff like this, and mostly fall into the "I wouldn't have done it that way" category- and people in the market for stuff like this can and often do go ahead and take care of it after they buy it. I know if I had the means to buy
it, I sure as heck would get a set of lower shrouds on it, and get rid of the horrible plastic red thingy and see what I or someone else could do to make the
engine wiring cleaner and neater than it is.... but that is piddly stuff compared to the seriously nice paint, efi conversion, and disk brake conversion, and all of the other nice cool stuff that was done. I really like the tire and wheel combo!

Look at the seller's 74 percentage positive feedback. The seller must have quite a few unhappy customers. At least 110 out of 451. Why buy anything from them??

The “seller” is just a consigner (is that a word?). The owner is a member of this board and a really good guy.

If run in a hot climate you really need to remove the shrouds if you don't want it to run insanely hot even with a nice clean oil cooler and de-flashed heads.
I'm in Texas and still have the shrouds on my Spyder to get it up to boost temps faster but I have to stay out of boost on trips longer than about 15 minutes.

Yes, I was referring to Gateway Classic Cars 74.3% positive feedback rating.

Someone clearly put a bunch of nice work into the interior and other parts of the car. But the 1968 Body Tag and 68 side marker lights is a clear issue. The dealer should know better or explain it in the sales listing.
