Default Serpent Quattro

I bought a Serpent Quattro off a local ex-racer here in Portland. Hoping to use it at our local 1/8th nitro road course here in the North West.
I'm really excited to try to get this running for a few weekends this summer just for a side project. I'd like to get a feel for the class to justify purchasing a modern kit for the 2014 season.
The purchase came with a spare roller, spare parts, spare engines and plenty of new old stock wheels and tires that were very well stored.
I've never ran 1/8 onroad nitro, so I do have some questions:

Would a modern exhaust and manifold fit vintage Nova engines?
Missing a gas tank... any leads out there?
I have a feeling modern bodies would fit, are there modern or replica "wingless" bodies out there?

There is an awesome track here near Portland that I'd love to try my VRC honed skills at called Timezone. I visited a few times and was awed by the idea of endurance racing.

This restoration is really just for fun, not competition.
I have a feeling I need to get a jump on the restoration before I miss this short NW summer.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide a total NOOB.
-Tommy

Thanks and here are some pics:

I have a 1/10 Jing Feng that I need to build at some point, as well as x3 Picco P600's. Also have a newly built Mugen K2-X Avance that is just sweet. Definitely something that draws my attention in these older on-road racers. Pics coming soon...

i have been building 1/8th scale car's for over 20 years now, alot of folks think there "complicated" but in my opinion there the easiest car's to work on


I remember buying rc250 kit's for under 90.00 shipped from tower hobbies


to bad associated quite producing them, sold there name to thundertiger and now sell's junk.
