    Re: 4th pic (engine compartment): Given the full fenders, chrome headlights, and carbs this must have been an original configuration. Can you please post a pic of the current engine compartment?



    Thx,

    2nd question: On each side where the back of the scuttle meets the top of the top frame rail there is (was?) what looks like a fairly heavy plate with a hole in it. Is this for a roll cage arm? If so, does it come with said roll cage?

    Thanks,
    AP

    Sorry for the late response. The holes on the sides of the scuttle are not for a cage,there was a switch mounted to one that I no longer use and the other at this point has no use. Here is a couple of videos of the car running. The engine compartment looks the same now as it did when I bought it-no changes from the posted picture. Thanks Rich
