Thinking about this for the trans. If I'm swapping the trans the clutch would be something I'd do anyway. Thoughts?

It is funny he associates a car with bad paint, mismatched wheels, a bad clutch, and destroyed door as "fair". .

Yeah, you'd want a new clutch anyway. I say go for it. Offer him $500 and walk if he doesn't take it. Only an enthusiast would touch that pile.

Tell me about it. They are just cool looking cars. $6500 isn't bad for that thing either. Interior is nearly perfect.

for what it was worth the 5.0 V12 wasn't anything particularly special or fast, or easy to maintain and repair, but it's the uniqueness of it that I'm after.

It does have quite the rare and exotic appeal to it. Though apparently not to his wife.

I personally think its a great idea. Who wouldn't want to drive naked? So long as you have heated seats and the climate was right. Shrinkage would be unthinkable in that situation.
