This one is a 76.’ Built in West Germany, it has a 2.3 liter 4 cylinder/4spd that produces maybe one-hundred rabid ponies on a good day. I had an earlier yellow one when I was a teenager that had a v-6 and the Ghia package. So, I bought this one as soon as I saw it with the intention of fixing it up cosmetically and then doing a V-8 swap, since that’s what I wanted to do to mine when I was a kid. Unfortunately, things have changed and where I’m at now I don’t have shop space, so it’s progress has temporarily stalled out. But the cosmetics are getting closer now with the paint completed in December, and the interior as far as I’m going to take it. It’s just a 289/5spd away from being a period correct-ish death trap! Right now I have more motorcycles, cars, trucks and boat projects than I even have room to store them. But I won’t let that slow me down. I’m a hoarder!
