Overall lines seem to have been modified extensively, bumpers and all.

John- She was completely rebodied, and not too well from an aesthetic point of view.

Genuine, unmolested 412 can be sourced for less than half that estimate given.

Never understand the logics behind these pricings by auction houses and car pushers.

I had to quote you, it was funny to me

I'd say no thank you to the car. But for sure it will find a new owner.
Just my two cents. De gustibus non est disputandum.

You do see these modified cars now and then. Cannot help but wonder what motivates them to do so, putting in the time, money and energy. Hard to comprehend.

This particular example looks like the owner was after the Testa looks ?

There's a Straman 400 or 412 floating around somewhere.... Remember seeing it recently. Much more tastefully done.

Looks like this one raided Honda's parts bin for those headlights

Current: 85' GTS QV
It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....
