Hi Dave,
Thanks for the reply. I purchased the car at a garage sale! I believe it is 100% complete it's just that it was dismantled 25 years ago so its kind of a giant jigsaw puzzle. Overall it looks to be in good shape, the motor is fairly clean...just all gummed up and stuck. Going to try and get it back together!

Thanks again

Sean
