Along the same vein and vintage, here is my old dog. 72 Dodge colt. Gutted, cage, tube frame front half, fiberglass fenders, quarters, hood, decklid. Weighed 1,860 with front and rear glass. Running 13x10x20 canilevered slicks on 13x7 minilites.
This actual car was built by Car and Driver back in 73 for their project car. After the build they promptly crashed it at Lime Rock. A buddy of mine bought it and did the tube front to fix the damage and drove it for 20 years, winning the Mid-Div championship in 1980 in GT4.
1.6 SOHC C2 4g32

.600 lift S9 cam

4 into 1 C2 header

155bhp on 110 octane. Redline was 8200.
I never tracked it. Just used it for autocross in DP.
