It does currently run but I wouldn't want to drive it too far with the open header and leaking gas lines. They are only leaking enough to be damp but I don't know how long they will last without patching or replacement.

In reply to EvanB:

I would be towing it back to Michigan to do the necessary repairs just curious if it needed to have more done to start at first.

I drove it home when I bought it (~8 miles) and occasionally start it up to move and drive around the block.

I have sold some parts. The engines and transmissions are gone along with some interior parts. I am open to offers on the car with remaining parts.

You sold the engine/transmission in the car, or some other engines, leaving the car with an engine?

I sold the spares, the car is still complete and runs and drives.

Still here. Do people just not like mk1s anymore? Is my price too high?

Would also consider trade for full size truck/van.

Is it wrong that I want to take one of these, hack off the fenders and their support structure, drop the body onto a slammed model A chassis, and put the grill/headlights/front fascia up front, and have a big V8 engine sitting in the open space between them? Kind of a mashup of a Rabbit and a rat rod t-bucket?

Not wrong at all...and I'll give you a great deal!

Someone apparently beat me to it. I guess there really are no original ideas anymore...
