Comments Father purchased the car in 1977 from someone who had modified it for SCCA autocross racing. The fender flares at the time were crude and ugly. We rebuilt the car for occasional road use, fabricating new fender flares and chin spoiler, and finished it as it is shown here. The car is currently fully disassembled and I am undertaking the rebuild myself for the most part. My intention is to remove the current flares and spoiler and replace them with 26R style wheel arch panels for a slightly closer to original feel.
