Default Alpine on ebay thats a factory OD chassis number

might be good for someone local to CO.

Check if the OD is with it though as there is a bell housing in the trunk

Nice find , Jeff, But just FYI, it's located in Michigan, between AnnArbor and Flint.

Plus, it's rust-free except for the rust.
And, the rust on the panels.

Floors rusted out"

"I had a lead on a rust bucket Tiger and thought I would use the mint looking panels for replacements, the Tiger disappeared so I never got to use the parts."

Imagine how bad the Tiger must have been if this car has the "mint" panels

The owner doesn't sound Alpine conversant. If I were close I'd take a look just to see if its really a 4-speed and not the original OD shown on the VIN plate. And frankly, floors rust out on a lot of Alpines without the rest of the body going to pot. This one appears to have usable panels.
