Ferrari (Bimbo??): looking for feedback/info etc.

30 yrs ago I aquired this childs car, not knowing what it was I called it my ferrari. (all I got was the body,trunk lid,front axle ,and wheels with perelli tires.Missing were windshield,steering ,lights, grille ,dash and motor.) Two yrs ago I decided to restore it.Not having reference as to what the missing parts look like I refered to auctual ferrari pictures and fabricated a windshield,grille,headlights,tail lights,dash,and steering wheel.I used a differential and axles from a riding lawnmower. For pwr a 49cc pocket rocket m/c motor w/electric start.It uses a uni-control lever, pushing it forward gives it gas pulling it back applies the brake. Reverse is supplied by a12v.ford power window motor. A week ago I was watching a restoration show-they were restoring a ferrari bimbo thats when I realized what I had. But the body of my car is all steel not fiber glass, can anyone give me any information about the steel body. I hope the mods dont devalue it
