My first car was exactly this! A 1966 230 with floor shift 4 speed and solex carbs. The M180 is an awesome engine, and it kept up with modern traffic without issue. This $350 car can become a driver without too much work, but as others have said, to make it cherry will be prohibitively expensive. The engine looks good though! The solex model is 38PDSI (still know it by heart as I did run into carb issues frequently as a 17 year old).
