Vehicle description

If you have any interest in "Restoring" a 1969 (last & best) Duetto, then you already know how fast the market is moving north, and you will soon realize that this is a great opportunity!
Here"s the story:
Around 20 to 25 years ago (as I was told) someone was driving this Duetto through the New Mexico desert, when the rear tire (driver"s side) blew out, causing the car to swerve to the left, into an "immovable" object, and then it "Rolled" over. We assume that the driver perished in the crash, because the keys were still in the ignition (in the on position) when it was found.
Basically, I purchased this Duetto several months ago, and (regrettably) I now have some pressing financial obligations, which have taken priority.
Here"s the Good News:
* One of the main reasons why I was immediately excited about acquiring this Duetto, is because WE KNOW that it was "RUNNING" BEFORE the CRASH!
* This Duetto is completely "IN-TACT" and (considering the mileage) the probability is very high that it still has the original (matching numbers) engine!
* Incredibly, the impact of the crash didn"t really damage the engine compartment! Obviously, if the impact was only 1 foot closer towards the center of the car, the extent of the damage would be a very different story!
* Incredibly, the frame is "tweaked" only slightly. If you stand behind the car, you can see that the rear wheel (passenger side) has been pushed slightly forward.
Obviously, the first order of business would be to take this Duetto to an "Expert" in frame alignment. Then, you need to find a Sheet Metal "Craftsman" who can "Restore" this Duetto, the right way!
What I Have Done:
* It was immediately taken to a Sheet Metal "Craftsman" who subsequently performed his "Surgery" to properly remove all of the twisted metal, in a "Professional" manner.
* All of the sand, debris and trash has been removed.
* The Grille has been plated.
* The original license plate frame, as well as the original keys, have been plated.
Since I have the original license plate, I was planning on hiring someone to research the story of the crash, which (I"m assuming) must have been reported in the local newspapers.
About the Pictures:
* The first 15 pictures were taken by the previous seller, and show the Duetto exactly the way it was found.
* The remaining 9 pictures were taken by me, and show the condition of the Duetto, after being "cleaned-up" and "prepped" by a Professional, as well as a few other "relevant" pictures.
I thank you for reviewing this listing, and I"m available to answer any additional questions. .
