Can any body help with history on this??

Ive had this body for over 15 years. Pulled it out of the weeds from behind famous hotrod builder bob tindles house. Now im trying to dig up some history on it to determine if i should build something fun with it or if its crazy rare and should be in a museum. I know it fits a lotus 23. But beyond that im in the dark. Any info would be amazing

What do you mean it 'fits a Lotus 23?'

This is a 23B frame.

The front half sorta resembles a Lotus 30/40, back half is Lord knows what.

What's the name on the side? Can't quite make it out.

The name on the side is Bill Alsabrook. It has 23 doors and 23 side tubs. The front and rear fiberglass are custom though. But the body would bolt fully onto a 23
