I am planning to restore a 1969 mazda 1500 which has its nose and tail modified. I intend to bring it to its original form. It has diesel 2C motor and runs great. hood, doors, side fenders and rear seat is original. front + rear suspension, front end and rear axle is also it's own. Door handles were replaced 15 years ago (would love to get genuine ones back). It's in my Dad's name and has all the taxes paid to date. Would you suggest buying another 1500/1800 for 70-80K or spend that much on my own vehicle. Do you know about a place from where I can get nose/tail cuts for the vehicle?
