Dear ralfdean,
Thank you for asking, ere you go, neglected to photograph all the extra parts we had for this car; yes I have the taillights, oth glass lenses are perfect but the metal frames need help, here are also extra fasteners in the wooden box that came with the car. Regarding your question, Will it Run?"The car has been in my warehouse for over Twenty years, never started it. I had a lot of chrome work done and planned to get back to it this summer but things have changed and I have to get rid of most of my cars. As far as I can see, here is NO electrical system issues (Burned or missing wires harnesses). Also as you requested, added picture of the underside of the car.
