The previous owner has had the Alleweder for 10 years plus so hopefully should be ok. Certainly looks a strong shell.
The early monocoque Robin Hoods were great little cars for the money. I built several of the Sierra based kits with the stainless chassis. There were a couple of well known modifications that were quick and easy fixes that transformed the road holding and strengthened the body.
