1970s custom build it says.
And that's about all it says.
350/TH400

Left hooker.
As far as one can tell from these few lazy pictures, pretty well done. Although we can't see the underpinnings.
And I have to say, despite being no fan of body mods, pretty tastefully done. Dig the quad headlamps.

Left hooker. I said that. No wet-weather gear? Dunno who in England is going to pay 18,995/$25000 for a left hooker you can't drive in the rain. Does it even have wipers?

Leaving aside these boring practicalities, could be a super dry-State car.

And look, it has a built-in picnic table.

Go on, ship it back to the US.
You''ll never see another.

Well, with that spliced on 70's Corvette rear section and that crazy wing, maybe it can fly itself back this side of the pond. :)

It's baaaaaack [www.ebay.co.uk]

Same seller, same lazy pictures, same non-description.
Same impractical no soft top.

But what skill. Look at the way the dash is moulded, the sweep into the doors.

The price has come down to 12,995. Now that the classic car bubble is bursting, might still be a stretch.

The fixed seats surely don't help with finding a buyer. But if it fits, quite a car. Cobra performance, with a difference.
