Fiberglass or plastic?

I finally found a replacement tub for my 75 soverign renovation. Unfortunately there is a small piece missing near the drain cut out. Does anyone know if these tubs are fiberglass or plastic? Is a repair a option?

Here are some photos. Is it worth traving 6 hours to attempt a repair on this?

It looks a lot like the tub in my '72 Ambassador. It is ABS (plastic) and very much repairable. I've done some fixing on these things with a product from 3M. Have a look at this post.

Work is never done, so take time to play!
