Yes and no, Gianluca. What rust it has tends to make me worry about rot 
underneath. It may be mostly fender swapping, but fenders are harder to 
come by over here, and it wouldn't look so splendid with four fenders in 
different colors. Also, 3500S fenders and 2000TC fenders are not exactly 
the same in terms of the trim holes.  It looks like some of the rust has 
been spray-painted over. The problem with so many of these cars is that 
after 40 years they simply need a good repaint, and the cost of a decent 
repaint has skyrocketed in recent years. You'll probably double the 
final cost of this car by repainting it.

But it's a nice, fairly honest car. I just wouldn't call it splendid.
