Repost in correct section now. Go to see a few of these in person Yesterday. This one was one of the most modded. Rear shock mod is the most different. They had been in storage for a long time.

Yes, it has been in a box for decades. But the rear shock tower mount mod is fairly unique for this model. There are similar mods but this one is a bit different. Plus that old Team Losi sticker is cool.

Wow, great car.

Commands a great price as well...

With a very little amount of effort that car could be cleaned up and running.

I am about to restore a 95 Pavidis YZ10 that is in similarly dirty condition. Simple green and WD40 fixes everything:)

Actually the Pavidis was in amazingly good condition under the dirt.

I would call what I did a cleaning vs a restoration. I think yours might be in the same category...depends on whether you want a shelf queen or a runner; mine will be a carpet runner.

The rear towers look very familiar from the front end of something
