Would it reach all of the safety specs required for today's world?  e.g.. 
ABS is a requirement in Europe and US won't be that far behind if not in 
front.  People want - as my wife calls them - the 'twiddly bits'.  Electric 
windows, heated sets, reversing sensors etc. etc.
The only way you would get one across here (UK) is to build it yourself and 
de-electrifying all the bits would be a major problem.

It's only the GOF's like us who could live without the electronics, today's 
youff want it all - NOW!!!
