Yep, that's a jeep motor in there.

The owner informed me that this is, in fact, the original color; one of four available.

The doors are wild. The mechanism opperates as smoothe as silk.

Hope you enjoyed it.

I Did! I have the R&R resin piece all primed and ready for paint! Nice shot of the dash. I opened the hood and am thinking of sliding a Cobra chassis and running gear under the body.

I remember having a model kit of this car in the 1960's. Don't know who made it. It was curbside and kinda crummy, as I remember. There's a real Darrin just like the one in those photos in this area. It's the same color. Nice car! It's been in some shows here. the same guy has a 64 Avanti.
