You Autoweek magazine readers will get the reference, but I would say $30,000 might be a tad too steep. For sale near me:

When I looked at the first picture, I thought, I don't know,,, looks pretty good. Then the engine compartment did it for me. Just another butchered POS. Uh, I just noticed your sig,,, no pun intended.

It looks nice on the outside, though. It'd be kind of like getting a kit car, huh?

I really like the idea of upgraded old cars. But cars like the 113 that are on the rise in price are better off kept at least with an MB engine. It would be interesting to see how this would do with an MB 119 engine or even one of the larger new 6's instead of the Chevy.

The 113 has plenty of potential to be a smoother, faster, quieter (if desired) car and with loosing the swing axle handle much better. All this can be done while making the car cheaper to own and operate.

I believe if the owner of this car stayed with an MB engine he would have gotten the 30K. Instead he got no bids.
