Looks like a Mini Armored truck. Go ahead and fill in the panels on the back and enclose it and VIOLA! Armored Truck.

Seriously looks like a car I thought up for a story I had in mind about post apoc desert people with a few with automobiles making money being couriers for packages roaming across the desert to other towns.... So just give it a massive AC system and it'd be exactly like it with more spotlights and some more more armour plating.

When I lived in Ft. Lauderdale there was a street driven sand rail with a 911 drive train. Never saw the guy throttle it up in traffic but I am sure it was crazy fast.

or just shove 36hp in it and take it to the flats

Only an hour from my house. The difference is that you go up to the counter with the catalog and read the numbers to people and then they get it from the warehouse...

Back in the '70s I burned a valve in my Corvair powered bug while visiting the old family place in Montana. I ordered all the parts to rebuild the whole engine through JC Whitney. Pistons and rings were TRW, Felpro gasgets, good quality bearings...all quality stuff, nice folks to deal with, and they got me the parts fast.
JC Whitney is still cool. The factory 'trunk' for my '05 Triumph would have been beaucoup bucks. The one I bought from JC and company was about $90, including shipping. Nice quality; I've been using it since '08.

I personally thing some convertible doors and windows need to be put in... Granted I live in MN where people will steal anything from a car if left unattended.

Or just flatten out the doors right. I have seen many doors with the tops cut off and the leave curved area with the straight up and down sections intact. If you are gonna go through the trouble then make the doors look like they were made without tops....

Also if people are stealing stuff out of your car leave a briefcase with a snake in it. pick the right kinda snake and their stealing days are over...

Another oddball... I seem to be drawn to these oddities..
Interesting that his other ad( with $7800 price) states not a kit car, all components are 1932 Duece.... Lol, riiiiight... Because a '32 Duece used a fiberglass hood and grill with flared sides..... 😳
