close ups are nice but how about a few profile shots...

Ebay Description:

1929 Mercedes Benz Gazelle Replica Kit Car, built on a 1968 VW Frame. This car is complete and in running condition. Has new suspension, new tires, rear carpet and a recently replaced clutch. It is running and ready to drive. Paint is pretty good shape, could use a wax and detail. Some pitting on wheel chrome and bumpers. Unlike most VW's, this runs pretty quiet. Lights, wipers, fog lights and stereo work. Signals and brake lights are working, street legal. Comes with a clean Alabama bill of sale, item is listed locally as well. Doors open and close properly. CD Player, Manual Steering & Brakes. 4Cylinder VW Engine and 4spd Manual Trans. Starts, runs, stops and shifts out good. Under 10K miles on rebuilt engine.

These kit cars are basically a complete fiberglass body that is lowered onto a VW bug frame, the body kit is $5,000+freight (plus frame and drivetrain. The floorboards are all fiberglass and strong. Some of the VW's original sheetmetal is gone off the bottom, but there's no water leaks or problems of that nature. Car comes with Convertible top (small spot needs repair on corner/aesthetic) and vinyl snap on windows to keep the weather out. The fiberglass shell is solid and all the hinges work.

**Bumper is tweaked and needs replacing, if the winning bidder would like me to get you another bumper, I can do so for about $50 by using painted straight aluminum tubing. Easy fix.
