The chassis is fully assembled and ready to go. The engine would need to come out fro detailing, polishing, and final installation. The car needs fuel lines installed and gauges hooked up. The dual spark ignition needs to be installed. Tires are just rollers and would need to be replaced. There is no upholstery. The car is striking in appearance, has super rare speed components, and is period correct.
