Didnt explain the front end weight issue well, its just is very light weight and the front end is so light it wheelies to easy and is hard to steerif its wet out, im going to try some weight in it today and see, its fine other wis, its never been a daily car,they only drove kids to school sometimes that kinda thingthats the owner from new, The guy i got it from did the new wirin, brakes gas tank,lights, I would move the gas tank to the back and weight under the hoodI see it getting a hood and a cover for the back and would turn into a very cool car, i'm kinda big for it but still fit fine at 5'11 290,has lots more room then it looks likeI would also take the bucket seats out and just cover the bench like a normal T bucket,but they are in good shape ...........feel free to make offers the reserve is low and very fair,theres more parts valuethan i have on it...
