Got it for Christmas in 2008 lookin just like this:
Image

My in-laws said I could have it if I got it running, it had stopped running and got parked like 9 years earlier. So I rebuilt the head, head gasket was blown between cylinders 3-4, wasn't getting spark so all new distributor gubbins, no fuel so I added an electric pump and Weber carb. Started for the first time May 20, 2010, took me almost a year and a half to just get it running. I got laid off twice and my wife was out of work almost that whole time, too.
Image

Painted purple. Used 6 cans of spray paint and 3 tall cans of PBR, results are as expected:
Image

New motor put in March 2012, got it running and crashed it and have since fixed it again.
