Style Car

what is the average cost and necessary parts for the average kit car?

i am not taking about a body kit, but a kit car. what does the average kit cost. i have all of the tools (or can borrow them), and with DIY paint. i am looking for a 1940's style car, maybe a sedan. can you tell me;
- the average cost of a kit car
- what parts are included
- what parts are needed
- what are common donor cars
- what is a good kit car company
- and what is the biggest kit car company?

Costs vary widely, as do the style and composition of kit cars. There are body kits that just add a different appearance to an existing car and cost a few hundred dollars, to complete, from the ground up rolling automobiles, ready to drop your engine and transmission in, and drive away, and these can cost many thousands.

I'd suggest you do some research on your own to decide what and if you really want to do with a kit car. Try a Google search for 'kit cars'
