that car is in great shape - I lived through that era - crazy how basic it all was.

I can't believe it ran well enough to drive on to the trailer! Ignore the stall at the end of the video here, hah. James did restart it and pull right up on there. Glad to sell to a fellow GRMer and excited to see where this little car goes next!

That's the best youtube video I've seen a long time and I was watching 351w dyno runs earlier.

The video brought me images of a circus bear driving a tiny car.

The car is cool but I am reminded of how much these cars were really a caricature of putting '64 Mustang body lines on a Pinto.  

The car looks amazingly clean in the sunlight!

Nice! What are the plans?

Currently the plan is to clean it up and keep it a bone stock time machine.

Lol, you would think I would have learned from the RX7 to pack a helmet with the ratchet straps when picking up a new car!  Im not sure any helmet required events will occur with this bad boy.

Hmmmm..... Wonder if a Supercoupe supercharged V-6 would fit in there?

No, no...  Leave it stock.  Shift kit maybe.   (Can't see that.)

And an engine upgrade would be a Turbo Coupe engine. devil

For a time capsule car like this, it's only original once. Even though it's not "exciting" speed-wise, stuff like this is cooler to see than a clapped-out modded one with rot holes. It's cool as hell as it is now!
