I'd totally paint it Rosso Red.



To match the intake of course... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

Are the output flanges in line with the hubs ? they look a bit to the rear.
What's the taped up hole in the top of the trans ?

No specific color called out but the factory color looks like Raspberry.

@tygaboy
I was wrong about the year btw., it looks like the Playboy raspberry cars were from '73, not '75.

Built date should be around 10/72 and the VIN close to 4732905940 ...

@tygaboy - Man, that is a nice, straight, perfect looking chassis. I like the idea about painting her Rosso Red.

I really do think you need to expand the Red Barn, like double it's size. Wait, was that too much? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

That’s some of the best valance work I’ve seen!

I’m completely down for this project!!!!

And there is so much room on either side of the engine for a pair of GT35 turbos… (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)


(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) The lines on that thing are amazing. Very high quality work. Would be an awesome build. Hope the engine checks out!

I figured some of you might like this - thanks for the encouragement.

A couple things:
- Color: The owner is a fan of "nothing to give away what's up until you're right there on the car". For this reason, it absolutely won't be painted red. Too obvious a choice. But near 100% probability it'll be a Ferrari color. The owner is a fan of blue (me too!) and the current leaders are something along the lines of "Blu Scozia" or "Tour de France Blue". Look them up - both great colors.

- History: The chassis is PTS what looks like Raspberry and there's some speculation it might have been a Playboy car. @SirAndy Andy, I'll be in touch with more details to see if we do have something with an interesting history. But even if that's the case, the car has been flared and prepped for a /6 swap so, Ferrari engine swap aside, it won't be going back to anywhere near factory spec. Interestingly - and those who've followed my LS build will see why I think this build was fated to happen - this chassis has had its fire wall cut out and modified! It has subsequently been replaced with an NOS firewall but, come on! Are you kidding me?!?

- My involvement. At this point, I'm only building the car and don't own any of what you're seeing. This may change. We may partner on it, we may work out a trade. Lots of stuff, lots to work out. But one thing for sure, it's gonna be a fun project and learning experience.

Wow. I hope it is good, but the back up plan is nice too. Some cool stuff happening at the Red Barn

@rgalla9146 - An acceptable axle angle was one of the first items to verify. The Ferrari output flanges look like they'll sit a bit further forward than those of my LS/Boxster. And I'd moved my LS drive train forward 1.5" from where the Renegade kit puts it.
Short answer is that fore/aft is well within range. Up/down should be OK but until the package is positioned and the chassis is at ride height, I won't have those specifics.
But there are high angle CVs available for the off road market that should be able to handle this set up - if that's even needed. Onward!

You'll have to have some hidden GoPros when you pull into a Ferrari gathering.....
....... especially when you lift the hood
Priceless.

If you decide against the flared body because the engine or something doesn’t check out I am interested in it.

Another typical Tygaboy post: virtually no 914 content! (but the gear heads will likely love it!) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
I figured folks might enjoy some additional info and a closer look at the 360 engine/trans so here you go.

flat plane crank and 8500 rpm - audio porn. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Well stated.

How about i start sending you $300 a month from now to . . . uh . . . . forever and we'll start a payment plan while you build it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

My bet on the hollow rear trans cover is to meet rear impact requirement. Want energy absorbed before the impact sled hits the "solid" transaxle and begins to push the whole engine / transaxle forward to passenger compartment.

Because it was such a cool picture. I end up just standing there, staring at it. It is so crazy cool... I am so fortunate to have this sort of stuff essentially fall into my lap. Yes, I'm sure there are more than a couple frustrating days ahead but, this build simply has to happen.
