more details on the engine/build and the chassis condition/fixes/replacement would help as well.

Undercarriage is incredibly clean and rust and rot free. I do not see any signs of prior damage

Engine has had a top half rebuild, numerous different belts, hoses, gaskets and seals. Plugs, wires and fluids, glass bowl fuel pump has been rebuilt, carbs have been rebuilt, new fuel lines, and all new electrical and wiring.
