I have no intention in using it other than as a static display,, yard art. I understand it to be a Berry Mini T originally developed by George Barris and others.
Once I get my display a bit sorted I'll post a couple pics.

Pretty cool Fred!

Can't wait to see your vision of yard art :)

Guessing you don't have a HOA, LOL

No HOA, actually never heard of them till recently.
The yard "art" will take time to develop. Thinking psychedelic '60s, surfer music, Beatnik,,, but it could end up a buggy behind the garage too, haha

in my 'neighborhood' there is a fine line between YARD ART and what american humorist Jean Shepard called "SLOB ART" ( like the purple mirror balls on podiums and peeing trolls on suburban lawns).

Well a couple buddies and I have come up with a perfect build for that body.
First , trash the vw stuff,!
New rear wheel drive chassis with a dropped Bell front axle.
Cut a hole just big enough to get a sbf part way into that front area but no radiator. The rad would be hidden in the rear under a louvered turtle deck that would replace that boxie thing, Cobra side pipes to finish.
Dreams,,, it'll stay behind the garage lol.

Thanks Lou, yes wanting for that forgotten corner look.
I think the word is getting around cause we live on a dead end road but lots a unfamiliar vehicles slowing down to take a look.
