I don't know Tom. I haven't read all the press or infos about
this conversion.

Maybe the car was dying in a bone yard. Her fate was maybe sealed.
But the new owner could have restore it perfectly, as a show room condition.

Fact is that I don't hate this conversion. I am not that purist. I like this wagon Nomad roof on her.

It's maybe just the overall proportions that I found awkward. The chops here and there that break her length that I don't like, the pushed back A pillars to create that long hood, the weird rear arch wheel opening that doesn't really match with the front arch...Plus, come one, I perfectly understand she's attractive for some, but this interior is absolutely hideous. Not the wood treatment, but the seats and console doesn't make any sens with the rest of the car. It looks so cheap.

Such a car deserved better, but it's just my opinion. ;)
