I purchased this ‘65 Spit in 1984 for parts for the one I am now restoring for my little girl. This little car was in a field of weeds, the engine had already been overhauled by a college student and then the car was abandoned. When I got this car home my wife now, but then we just met and had planned to marry, saw it; she asked what is it for and I told her for parts for my '67 Spit and she said oh I really like this car.
Goodbye parts car, hello to lots of extra work but worth it. Needless to say that was it, I rebuilt it for her, It runs like new, the gas mileage is great and it is a real eye catcher filled with fun, fun and more fun.
