Yes you should restore it. Here are a couple of pictures of what's possible (not my model car).

Ok, Need some help, tore car down took lots of pictures but not any real good ones for the front end. Not exactly sure how the A-arms attach to the chassis.
If anyone has pictures that would be great or is there a owners/parts manual out there for this car let me know
Thanks
Eric

Also put in WTB section, but looking for both front spindles for this car, if anyone is sitting on raco parts I would be very interested

Thanks
Eric
