He should be desperate, that is one hell of a project. You woul be under water just thinking about it. Touring construction and ali panels, it would cost like a Maserati or Aston. That said, a nice Touring 3C really is an experience
Owner sounds highly motivated, and at that price it won't last long. He sent me additional pictures the other day, and it looks very rough indeed, with signifiicant rust and collision damage on the RF fender. BUT what a beauty when done up right (see pictures above). Lines very similar to a Maserati 3500GT, but with a more interesting rear aspect.
