Appears to be a CMI car and, as such, is rare and potentially valuable, as it is made to the 550's correct dimensions. The rear's a bit high, which is easy enough to fix, and you can see the clam is misshapen. That's the CMI tell-tale; Rusty Tubs has the fix for that. A few 10s of thousands worth of fettling and the car could be very, very close to an original.

It needs a proper engine and trans plus lots of other stuff but it looks like a deal.

Looks to me like rear camber is OK, so a front-end lowering and a tranny/engine raise is in order. In addition to a clam fix.

I've never seen one so high. Ever!
