My Porker has huuuge rear arches, side skirts and a German Flatnose front end. The engine is a 2.7 having been rebuilt about 300 miles ago by Mike Bainbridge.
To put it back as near to original it will need rear arches /wings, front wings, bonnet, lights chrome work etc. Is it really worth spending the money and time?
I bought it as I like the Flatnose shape but curiosity has got the better of me.

If you feel it needs bodywork anyway, then gtp probably worth doing.
However, it's your car, if you like it as it is and intend keeping it, then don't change it.
