12c to 650 conversion

Stumbled across this... doesn't look half bad and relatively cheap. I don't personally think I would ever modify my car... but thought I would toss this up here:

https://www.alibaba.com/product-deta...838.0.0.99shhC

I do like the look of the 650s front end a bit better. If i could somehow get my hands on a OEM MSO front end that would be ideal.

Wonder how much the whole kit is? Also, the 650 headlights will be the most expensive part of the conversion...

I have a full 650 kit if anyone is interested? 650 front bumper including grilles and bumper cheeks, top trim, two head lights, brand new 650 bonnet and a pair of brand new wings. PM me if anyone is interested as this won't be around for long.

Would be a relatively easy fix for the bodywork of this car....clean CarFax too ...errr!

Not sure about anything under the skin though...

Lots of faults. Sounds like something bad is going on underneath...

Maybe, Ron. Would be good to have a good look underneath at the suspension mounting points etc. You never know..
