You get it with many accessories, two car covers [one flannel indoor, one weather-resistant outdoor), custom floormats, tonneau cover, soft top [never installed, still in factory packing] and tool kit [containing lead hammer, spinner pliers, SS retainer wire and custom-made axle socket]. Chromed roadster bumpers. Nose and leading edge of rear fenders are 3M clear bra protected. CTEK battery tender/ “trickle charger.”

You get all the build and maintenance documentation, along with a Superformance service manual and a variety of spare parts.
