https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwi/cto/5604457476.html could the restoration and modernization be done lowcost?

That probably depends on how you define 'restoration' vs 'modernization', and how much one is worth restored vs modernized. Regardless, I'd be sorely tempted to try.

Glass rear screens are still made but expensive, motorsport guys use these http://www.plastics4performance.com/tvr ... creen.html

I would say that car is a bargain and worth the effort, so many have been butchered :oops: that originals are starting to go for big money.

The pics and 4 cylinder description make for lots of questions but the price is a deal. You will have to like fiber glass though. :ack:
