Not really a restoration, really a complete rebuild. My guess is it would cost you twice as much to rebuild this wreck than just buying a nice F40. If the engine and transmission were in good shape then it might be worth doing.

Not sure that would be good for this poor F40.

Archie,
It looks like we've already worked on it. All we need to do is add our signature stripe on the side. A dozen beers while we watch the paint dry and she's good to go!

Pete, It also still needs a few valves replaced, new camshafts, and a few other bits before it is ready for the Spirit of Maine Speed Stripe.
