Triumph Spitfire (GM V6)

14

1974 Triumph Spitfire with a 300cu Chevrolet V6. Bowtie block, 23* aluminum heads, cross ram intake (late 80’s, early 90’s NASCAR & ASA pieces). 2X3 tube chassis car with four link rear suspension. Runs mid 11 second quarter mile times with out any other power adders. GM 4speed over drive auto. Dodge 8 3/4” rear axle. I built it all from the ground up. Only original Spitfire parts are some body panels. Completely street legal and other then the hood scoop, the perfect sleeper.

Wow, that's quite the beast. How does it handle with the V6 up front?
