Garage KeptOpel Mantasin this condition don't come along often anymore.Especiallythose that have solid battery boxes, nd no frame damage.
Those are getting exceedingly rare. The few that can still be found in this condition are in the California and the Southwest, nd even those have a lot of sun damage to the interior.
Add to that getting one to the East Coast can cost upwards of a $1000.
