Default Daihatsu Copen 356....

This caught my eye as I thought it might be a new option -

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PORSCHE-3...S/174092209081


Then I read the description which is quite interesting - "BEFORE I GET ASKED ABOUT IVA INSPECTION,I HAVE REMOVED METAL FROM THE BODY (NOT JUST TRIMMING WHEEL ARCHS) SO IF YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY ANAL THEN YES IT DOES.WHAT I CAN SAY IS IT’S NOT BEEN CUT IN HALF AND WELDED BACK TOGETHER TO ACHIEVE THE CORRECT WHEELBASE LIKE YOU WOULD USING A BEETLE DONOR WHICH DEFINITELY NEEDS AN IVA BUT IS RARELY DONE."

Hmmm, it is not easy to tell from the only photo, but it looks like the removal of metal might have included the surround for that big bit of glass that you look through...


I have just had a better look at a Copen and the dimensions aren't bad, and the door shapes are OK. If you remove bumpers, bonnet and boot, the silhouette is quite sleek. The main problem is...it's a Copen.
