This car has been resting in the Finnish forest for decades. According to the story, it was abandoned in the forest at least 25 years ago, possibly as early as the early 80s.
The is no doubt that the condition of the vehicle shows how long it has been neglected. The bottom of the car has almost disappeared, and the roof is almost entirely rusted off from the chassis.
The car will nevertheless have a new opportunity for life in our hands and it will return on the road after a few hundred hours.
The car has gone under the knife. At the beginning of January, front beam and engine/gearbox have been disconnected from the chassis. A new welded support frame was added inside and a few pre-ordered replacement body panels have already found their place in the chassis.
The donor car for engine has also been acquired. More about this later…
