I'm surprised the ad doesn't give the history like some people do with common cars for sale.

I like that A LOT!! But a slant? Did it have torsion bar suspension too?

Looks kinda like a T-bird from the front.

Nice one, Diego!
I sure haven't seen or heard of this one before.
With a tube frame and 'glass body, I wonder what it weighs?
It might be a pretty good runner even with a /6.

It's only a rebodied version of this, for the most part:

That car looks like a late sixties Ford.

I would have guessed that Maserati had something to do with this car. The styling looks like something they would build.

That's pretty cool. Too bad about the color combo.

Thanks Diego, I have never seen one of those before!

Reminds me of a lot of different styles from different automakers.

One that jumped out at me was the roofline reminds me of an early Honda Prelude, for some reason. Makes me wonder if the stylists of the Prelude saw one of these when they were conceptualizing the design back in the 1970s...

I see Fiat X1/9 with a rear seat - I guess Fiat has had its eyes on MOPAR for decades laugh2

would love an underhood shot - how does a /6 fit under that low slung hood, even if it is laying on it's side?

Dry sump?

I wouldn't want to own it, but I'd love to see underhood too, and take it for a drive. Definitely can see some T-bird in the front, and some Triumph in the sides. That four door has some Mercury in front and I can see some '65 or '66 Olds in the rear haunches.

I kind of like it, although I'm not crazy about the color.
