    First comments from the three photos:
    1. Incorrect steering wheel
    2. Incorrect mousehair dash covering
    3. Wiper motor issues as wipers are not "parked"
    4. Plexiglass nose- only one original spyder made this way so everyone knows it's a conversion
    5. Left front bumper supports probably bent upward
    6. Early production car with no headrest seats
    7. Tonneau cover looks correct, that's a plus as some look terrible

    In talking with Michael, he mentioned that neither he, nor Straman ever did any conversions with the chassis mods used in original cars. Consequently, this car will have a standard Berlinetta chassis.

    Hope this helps.

    Conversions, at best, have been valued by the market similarly to coupes historically, which means between $100K and $135K. Sheehan has this car on his web site at $195K. Wishful thinking IMO.
