So who has a 80's Mutt ?

They seem to be rare. More so, than the 60's-70 Mutts.

83, kind of worse for wear. Probably why they are more rare. The demill orders were quite strict by then.

I know of one, what do you need to know? It is the same as all the other A2's. It came out of the same large group as this one.

I was actually going to straighten that body out just to prove it could be done. Unibody construction is actually fairly easy to straighten since it is all connected. When I jacked up on those rear fenders so I could put tires on it to roll it around they came right up and the entire rear wheel well just about went back into position. The only reason I did not do anything further is because the rear frame section actually got bent down right behind the rear so that would have to be cut off and replaced. I did not have another section to do that with and I really did not want to get that far into it at that time but yes, it could be made into a runner again and with all original parts so yes, it would be original. And I am aware of Fil's problem.
