    I think it may be a good deal cost wise but, I would be hesitant on trading for a vehicle you cannot or may have a difficult time getting parts for unless you can make your own, then its not as much of a problem.
    Good luck, here is a link to see what it came with.:)

    yea the columbia was SVMs flagship onroad car i think, before the closed the doors up.

    No Moa here has a Bergonzoni you may be interested in. Very nice cars, parts are available, though in some cases you need to order outside the us as there isnt a us distributor, but there are us distributors for Raco Europe, which carries all Berg parts!.

    Welcome here.

    I agree to that. All you need is gears springs and tiers. If you like it then go for a on road cares. Most on road cares have the same chassis as the of road I think.
