Anyplace on this planet ?
A rust free anything, nearly 40 years old ?
There may be one in a Swedish automotive museum ?
How about Tucker # 52 ?

In fact ANY Sonett II would be luck to find despite rustyness as you`re talking only ~270 made 40 years ago ...
V4 might be your chance but even then rust-free will not be readily available.
Just bought a V4 myself that has been de-rusted and repaired 10 years ago. Seems that rust-free Sonetts are very rare even among Sonett III`s.
Good luck!

The 1974 in Florida is a Sonett III.. Technically the Sonett II was a 2-stroke powered car built in 1966 and 1967. Only a handful were built in 1966 and production continued in 1967 but they eventually switched over to a V-4 engine midway through the year and renamed the car Sonett V4. That body style was built until 1970, when it was replaced by the Sonett III.
