No I think Dale Crandall has it. In about 2002 I stripped it to use the parts on another car and sold the bare body.

Isn't this the Spider that you put the Caribou "wood" kit in?

Yes. They looked real nice, real wood, and really didn't fit. The door strips were almost right, the dash panels were just poorly cut. Had to do a lot of work to make them work, but I could say that about nearly every cosmetic part I received from caribou back then.
