    Little Giant Killer 3 body found... my new project

     



    This car was campaigned in the early 1980s. I found the body in April and will be going to pick it up the 1st of June. My goal is to have a running, driving car on the track for spring of 2017.


    The glory days...


    As it currently sits:

    The body looks to have survived pretty well!

    The driver's side has some damage that I am aware of, but have not yet seen.

    As to the power, it used to use a high winding 82mm (stroke) x 88mm(bore) n/a engine. It will have an 82x94 turbo engine in it. The goal is 280hp to the ground and 1400lbs with driver.

    Is the body supposed to be styled after something?

    I've been chopping on the pan and setting up the cage for the car. Now, I'm awaiting for a welder to arrive as my old one crapped out.
