After this car was brought to US in 2011 it ran for some time, however mechanical condition of the car was a constant struggle. In early 2016 mechanical resource was completely exhausted and I made a decision to give this car a second life by swapping a modern chassis under this vintage car. Florida-based company Devolro (www.devolro.com) started this project back in July 2016 (driving 30 hours from Austin,Texas to Miami, Florida during 4th of July weekend was quite an interesting road trip).
