i sure wish that car was being parted cause i cant afford the whole thing

nice mods, body kit looks to have potential to me. any info on who makes the hood?

the engine looks pre 79 from the flat cam cover my 80 and 81 are not flat, and also the head rests. but the intake manifold can easily identify 79 or 80 version.

The hood itself is stock - what the PO said about the grille is that the fibreglass grille piece is added where the stock grille mounts and must be faired to the stock hood with fibreglass body filler, then repainted. Overall, it was done well, but there are areas that need attention to detail. Or a replacement hood/grille to go back to stock. As I mentioned, the PO thought this whole bodykit was made by Erebuni a very long time ago - I can't find any info on the kit on the web though.

Vipercrazy, you should keep track of this thread - if someone on this board buys the car to restore it, they may want to part with the hood and bumper body kit pieces, maybe also the sills. This may work out for you yet.

Might be a longshot

Did Jerry Pellegrino of EPE Home European Performance Engineering import this car orginally?


I saw Jerry Pellegrino on the import tag.

I don't know the importer, but based on the page you linked to, I wouldn't be surprised. The name on the tag is clearly Jerry Pellegrino - if another importer had that name, well, who knows what the odds are.
