Answer
Hi Nebojsa,

I can't tell from that photo. What year and model is it suppose to be? Most all replaces here in the US are mostly fiberglass bodys. To find out if it is real or a replica you need to have someone who knows that model examine it closely, especially under the bottom. Somewhere on the engine block should have the casting mark of "Standard". Only if it were a very rare collectors' car would anyone go to the trouble of making a metal body. Then it would take an expert on that model to examine it to tell if it was original.
