V12.... having removed that boat anchor of dubious exotica, most people would be content with a nice simple 351 Windsor. But not the builder of this 71 roadster, no siree. He improved(?) things with a turbocharger.
And a cold air intake, which is a plus.

The Series III interior is pretty boring compared to the Series I with its daaaaangerous toggle switches, and it's lost its original gauges but never mind.

Perhaps the ratchet shifter plus the nitrous pretty much suggests what the car was built for.
In which case the fact that the car has any decent sort of interior is perhaps surprising.
I wonder what times it did.

The soft top looks a bit Nora Batty and the trunk is rather ahhh, functional, but fixing it gives one something to do.

Anyway, here in all its uniqueness

Seller says they have no information on the who the what the when.
Many hundreds of hours in this car, shame that the build history has just.... evaporated.

They say they've 'gone through the top and turbo and it runs really well'. They didn't add 'for now'.
