New project 1975 Rupp nitro

So some time back I fished out a rupp nitro from the river, it's pretty banged up but I finally got the paperwork sorted with the owner and it's mine.

It still runs and the track is practicly new :) but will need costmetic work.

I'll grab some pictured tonight.

It has a replacement motor (340 CCW from a northway I think or JD) but I managed to find the original Kohler at the p/o's and it looks rebuildable (needs pistons)
